Twitter Blows Up Over White Trump Supporter Holding Up ‘Blacks for Trump’ Sign
During a Donald Trump rally in Florida today, something kinda odd came to the attention of viewers. As the Republican presidential nominee talked about how happy he was to see a number of ‘Blacks for Trump’ signs behind him.
Well, there was just one little problem.
It appears that the person holding the sign right behind Trump and in full view of the television cameras was an older white woman.
As one would expect, Twitter was all over it.
"Blacks for Trump" signs waving behind Trump as he speaks in Florida. Held up by white people. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Well, in all fairness, her last name could be "Blacks." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ https://t.co/JFG3h08baB

Some people pointed out that this isn’t the first time this has occurred at a Trump rally.
This has happened multiple times. https://t.co/y0SsPmwdjS
