It's the latest example of Trump retweeting a fake, doctored or manipulated image or message from his Twitter account.
It comes as the president is leaning into a law-and-order message on the campaign trail and as he trails Biden in national and swing-state polls.
The fake video was tweeted by a pro-Trump parody account "The United Spot." Trump added the words "What is this all about?" over the video in which Biden is depicted as playing the NWA song from 1988 at a Hispanic Heritage Month event.
In the original, widely shared version, Biden instead plays "Despacito" from his phone after being introduced by Puerto Rican artist Luis Fonsi, who released the song last year.
