Trump promotes video of a supporter saying 'white power'

The president on Sunday tweeted the video featuring the racist slogan associated with white supremacists.

Trump had written, "Thank you to the great people of The Villages" in his post, but the White House later claimed he did not hear the phrase. In a rare move, Trump deleted the tweet and a spokesperson claimed he had no idea what he was sharing, but take that with a trillion grains of salt.

"It was so profanity-laced, the entire thing was offensive - certainly the comment about the white power was offensive", Scott said. Amid the ongoing mass protests in U.S. against racism, provoked by the murder of black George Floyd in Minneapolis in late may, and over four months before the presidential election Trump, who had previously been accused of fuelling racist attitudes, similar scandals are not needed. In the official review was hastily given to the simplest explanation: "the President did not hear in the video cry". "What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters", spokesman Judd Deere said.

Protesters lined the street, many of them screaming epithets, accusing the Trump supporters of being racists and holding signs calling the president a bigot.

While the president has always been accused of being racist and using the language of white supremacists and similar far-right groups, Trump has often said he believes he is the "least racist person in the world." .

"He should not have retweeted it", Scott said, "and he should just take it down".

'It may be that you can draw a conclusion that he heard it, and it was racist, and he tweeted it to promote the message.

Trump generally denies his language is racist or inflammatory and dismisses criticism as political correctness. But make no mistake: "it's a battle we will win", the former vice president tweeted. "We're in a battle for the soul of the nation - and the President has picked a side". (Even some of Trump's Republican members of Congress are open to renaming these bases.) Trump has also criticized those who want to tear down statues that honor Confederate leaders for trying to destroy our "heritage".

Trump's 2020 rival, the presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden compared Trump's tweet Sunday to his 2017 comments blaming "both sides" for violence between white nationalists and counter-protesters at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
