President Donald Trump weighed in Tuesday on CNN host Chris Cuomo’s Monday night confrontation when he threatened to beat up a man who called him “Fredo.”

Trump’s tweet suggested that Cuomo had nothing to be upset about because, “I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings”

A video of the altercation was recorded on video and posted on the Youtube channel “THAT’S THE POINT with Brandon.” It depicts Cuomo steadily losing his temper as a photograph-hound bothers him for a picture. The man insists he believes Cuomo’s first name to be “Fredo,” and Cuomo responded by claiming that “Fredo” was a racial epithet for people of Italian descent.
