(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) -- Chris Cillizza, a political analyst for CNN, deleted a tweet he sent out Tuesday that included an image appearing to show President Trump in crosshairs.
In a separate tweet, Cillizza said the graphic was unintended and the result of a computer program he and his team used.
"I’ve deleted a GIF about President Trump," he wrote. "We use @GifGrabber to make our GIFs and it defaults to the image below as a first frame. To clear up any unintended confusion, I’ve removed the tweet."
