The 15-second video posted to Trump's Instagram account includes Putin showing off his martial arts skills, portraying him as one of the United States's "toughest opponents."
 
It then shows a clip of Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner, barking like a dog before cutting to video of Putin laughing, with text stating, "We don't need to be a punchline!"
 
The video of Putin laughing was taken from an interview several years ago, while the clip of Clinton imitating a barking dog was from last month when she was mocking Republicans. 
 
A pro-Clinton super-PAC fired back at Trump with their own ad on Thursday.
 
Putin called Trump a "bright and talented person" during his news conference in December. Trump, who has repeatedly said he'd get along with Putin, said it was a "great honor" to receive the compliment.
