Donald Trump has hit back at Snoop Dogg on Twitter (where else?) for the rapper's music video which features him aiming a toy gun at a lookalike parody of the US president.

Trump has suggested that had Snoop done the same thing to Barack Obama while he was still in office, he would have faced jail. He also claimed that the star's career is "failing".

"Can you imagine what the outcry would be if , failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!" the POTUS just tweeted.

Meanwhile, Trump's personal lawyer has also condemned Snoop Dogg, and insists he owes Trump an apology for the "disgraceful" video.

Michael Cohen told TMZ: "It's totally disgraceful. Snoop owes the president an apology

"There's absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president, and I'm really shocked at him, because I thought he was better than that.

"Just because you want to hide behind the guise of artistic capabilities or artistic freedom of speech doesn't make it right. Snoop knows that, and he played very close to the line here."

But Snoop Dogg denies attempting to incite controversy with the video, telling Billboard: "When I be putting shit out, I don't ever expect or look for a reaction.

"I just put it out because I feel like it's something that's missing. Any time I drop something, I'm trying to fill in a void.

"I feel like it's a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody's dealing with the real issue with this fucking clown as president, and the shit that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being."
