The video that was retweeted by the US leader (the video was originally shared by @Solmemes1) has quickly gained traction on social media, with 23,000 retweets and 87,000 likes.

In the video that sees Baahubali lead actor Prabhas' head substituted with Trump's, the US President can be seen engaging in various acts of violence against his foes. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and First Lady Melania Trump, among several others, are also seen in the video, that attempts to spread a message of unity and camaraderie between India and the United States ahead of Trump and Melania's visit. The video ends with the message: "USA and India United!"

Although the morphed video posted by Trump via his official profile has shaken up the social media sphere, some opined that the US President is using "memetic warfare" to irritate his naysayers. "I mean the meme video looks absolutely ridiculous but don’t make the mistake of underestimating Trump. There’s a method to his madness. He’s feeding the trolls and using his presidential platform to encourage cheap meme culture and internet trolling as a powerful political force", wrote one Twitter.
