"Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!" wrote the President.
Trump's personal lawyer, slammed the video and Snoop, during an interview with entertainment website TMZ.
"I'm really shocked at him. I thought he was better than that," said Michael Cohen. "I certainly would not have accepted it as President Obama and certainly not as President Trump."
Actor-comedian Michael Rapaport stars in the clip. He's pulled over and shot by a police officer, which is filmed by an onlooker.
The video is for a remixed version of the song "Lavender," by Canadian group BADBADNOTGOOD featuring Snoop Dogg and Kaytranada.
