Trump retweeted video showing apparent supporter shouting 'white power'

In a now-deleted tweet, U.S. President Trump shared a video showing alleged supporter shouting 'white power'

In a now-deleted tweet, U.S. President Trump shared a video showing alleged supporter shouting 'white power'U.S. President Donald Trump retweeted a video showing one of his supporters in a golf cart wearing Trump campaign gear shouting 'white power'. The supporter was a part of a pro-Trump rally at a retirement complex in Florida. In the video, protestors, and supporters of President Trump are screaming and hurling curses at each other.

The tweet has since then been deleted. In a statement to the press, White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere claimed that President Trump did not hear the 'white power' comment made in the video, and only saw the enthusiasm of his supporters. Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the US Senate, said in an interview with CNN that the video was extremely offensive and called on the President to delete the tweet.

President Trump has been accused of sharing or promoting racist content in the past. For instance, during his campaign in 2016, he retweeted an account with the handle 'WhiteGenocideTM', and in 2017, he retweeted three inflammatory videos from a British far-right group.
