President Donald Trump was roundly denounced on Sunday for sharing a video showing a supporter saying “White power!”
Trump shared the video from The Villages and said, “Thank you to the great people of The Villages. The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe is shot. See you soon!!!”
Time to add another one to this depressing thread about Trump’s decades of overt racism: tweeting praise for a supporter who chants “white power!” https://t.co/qpnmS6Twxi

Gonna be great watching Ted Cruz, after spending yesterday on Twitter making the case that everyone should know Woodrow Wilson, while a racist, was a Democrat, pretend like he didn’t see Trump’s “white power” tweet today.

President Trump just re-tweeted a video of some of his supporters shouting “white power!” It doesn’t get more explicit than this, folks.

White power is going to be trending today because the President of the United States tweeted a video where the very first Trump supporter yells it out at protesters… and he called those Trump supporters "great people." https://t.co/F6qeODIjy1

The president is retweeting videos of his supporters yellowing "White Power." If you don't see the problem with this, then you're part of that problem. https://t.co/IWWeNl2AUT

My President posting an old white guy shouting “White Power!”
The racism is the message.
It’s sickening. https://t.co/26U8OakCvp

One of those ‘great people’ shouts ‘WHITE POWER!’
Are you endorsing that, Mr President? https://t.co/xoM9ncNjNT

I think the guy in this video really is yelling “White Power.” If only the president had a staff that could help him with his messaging. https://t.co/hnDQ3bFoAt
