Florida Senator Marco Rubio says Snoop Dogg shouldn't have shot a toy gun at a clown dressed as President Donald Trump in a music video released over the weekend.

The video shows Snoop shooting at the Trump character with a gun that releases a flag with the word, 'bang.'

Rubio told TMZ that "Snoop shouldn't have done that." He said "We've had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should really be careful about."

He adds that if the "wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you could have a real problem".

Rubio lost to Trump in the Republican primary campaign.

The video is for a remixed version of the song Lavender, by Canadian group BADBADNOTGOOD, featuring Snoop Dogg and Kaytranada.
