A shocking video showing a fake President Donald Trump shooting, assaulting and stabbing his critics and the media was reportedly played at a conference held by a pro-Trump group at his Miami resort last week.

The clip was shown at Trump's National Doral Miami during a three-day conference held by American Priority.

One part of the video, the Times said, shows a fake Trump's head edited onto the body of a man opening fire in the "Church of Fake News" on a group whose faces were edited to appear as a group of Trump critics and news organizations.

"Sadly, this is not the first time that supporters of the President have promoted violence against the media in a video they apparently find entertaining -- but it is by far and away the worst. The images depicted are vile and horrific," CNN said in a statement Sunday night. "The President and his family, the White House, and the Trump campaign need to denounce it immediately in the strongest possible terms. Anything less equates to a tacit endorsement of violence and should not be tolerated by anyone."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and the President's son Donald Trump Jr. were scheduled to speak at the conference, the Times said.

"I was there to speak at a prayer breakfast, where I spoke about unity and bringing the country together," Sanders told the Times. "I wasn't aware of any video, nor do I support violence of any kind against anyone."

The White House Correspondents' Association also released a statement about the heinous video:

"All Americans should condemn this depiction of violence directed toward journalists."

"The WHCA is horrified by a video reportedly shown over the weekend at a political conference organized by the President's supporters at the Trump National Doral in Miami. All Americans should condemn this depiction of violence directed toward journalists and the President's political opponents," said Jonathan Karl, President of the association. "We have previously told the President his rhetoric could incite violence. Now we call on him and everybody associated with this conference to denounce this video and affirm that violence has no place in our society."
