Donald Trump likened himself to Rocky Balboa after tweeting a Photoshopped image that depicted his face superimposed onto an image of the fictional boxer.

As his political opponents continue the impeachment enquiry trying to send a knock out blow to his presidency, the US leader, 73, likened himself to Sylvester Stallone character.

Immediately the tweet was mocked on social media with many poking fun at Trump’s weight in comparison to the picture.

Penny Driver wrote: “Rocky could tie his own shoes, Trump’s tummy gets in the way.”

Peter Carson added: “Rocky actually defeated Russia, Trump here has his head up Putin’s a**.

“But your ignorance is your playground.”

It was unclear how the image of Trump was created but his head super imposed on the picture which originally served as an advertisement for the film “Rocky III” from 1982.

The President tweeted the image an hour after he arrived at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida for Thanksgiving.

Stallone, who played Balboa in several films, has been to the White House to meet with Trump and previously advocated for the posthumous pardon of the late heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson, who was convicted in the early 1900s of transporting a woman across state lines.
