Donald Trump is coming in hot on Sunday morning, appearing to approve of a video showing one of his supporters yelling “White power!” at a group of anti-Trump demonstrators in central Florida.
The embattled US president retweeted a video that he said was from the Villages, a retirement community in central Florida, that showed Trump supporters clashing with protesters.
“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!!” he wrote.
Trump’s health secretary, Alex Azar, responded to the video on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday morning.
“I’ve not seen that video or that tweet, but obviously neither the President, his administration nor I would do anything to be supportive of white supremacy or anything that would support discrimination of any kind,” Azar said.
South Carolina’s Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the US Senate, has condemned Donald Trump’s retweet of a video containing a white power message and said it should be removed from Twitter.
“There’s no question that he should not have retweeted it and he should just take it down,” Scott said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union.
“He should not have retweeted and he should just take it down… It is indefensible,” GOP Sen. Tim Scott reacts to the video President Trump shared of a man driving a golf cart with Trump campaign posters, chanting “white power.” #CNNSOTU https://cnn.it/3ia1gy0
“It was so profanity laced, the entire thing was offensive. Certainly, the comment about the white power was offensive,” he added. “It’s indefensible. We should take it down.”
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!!!
