Donald Trump Tweets Racist Video With ‘White Power’ Chant, Then Deletes It




Donald Trump tweets racist video with ‘White Power’ chant, then deletes it.

President Trump tweeted a video showing one of his supporters chanting “white power,” a racist slogan mainly used by white supremacists.

The hashtag #TrumpIsARacist is currently trending on twitter.

President Trump on Sunday tweeted approvingly of a video showing one of his supporters chanting “white power,” a racist slogan associated with white supremacists. Trump later deleted the tweet and the White House said the president had not heard “the one statement” on the video.

The video appeared to have been taken at The Villages, a Florida retirement community, and showed dueling demonstrations between Trump supporters and opponents.

President Donald Trump tweeted:

“Thank you to the great people of The Villages,”

Moments into the video clip he shared on twitter, a man driving a golf cart displaying pro-Trump signs and flags shouts “white power.” The trending video also shows anti-Trump protesters shouting “Nazi,” “racist,” and profanities at Donald Trump supporters.

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., told CNN’s “State of the Union.”:

“There’s no question″ that Trump should not have retweeted the video and “he should just take it down,” “I think it’s indefensible,”

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., is the only Black Republican in the Senate.

Donald Trump later deleted the tweet that shared the video.

Judd Deere, White House spokesman said in a statement:

“President Trump is a big fan of The Villages. He did not hear the one statement made on the video. What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters.”

When asked whether Trump condemned the supporter’s comment, the White House did not respond
