Trump shares video of man chanting, 'White power' in protest clash

Trump shares video of man chanting, 'White power' in protest clash”

The president retweeted the video to his millions of followers just after 7:30 a.m., thanking "the great people of The Villages", the Florida retirement community where the clash apparently took place. Corrupt Joe is shot. In accordance to CNN, a White House spokesman claimed Trump "did not hear the one statement made on the video".

Also appearing Sunday on "State of the Union", Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said that "obviously, neither the president, his administration nor I would do anything to be supportive of white supremacy or anything" similar.

Ahead of the tweet was deleted, South Carolina Sen.

In May, as protests erupted after the killing of George Floyd, a black man, by a Minneapolis police officer, Trump tweeted, "When the looting starts, the shooting starts", a phrase with a long history of connection to racism.

"It's indefensible. We should take it down".

It is time to go beyond destroying statues to build new ones

In a statement on Sunday evening, White House spokesperson, Judd Deere defended the president's actions, saying that he "didn't hear" the racist language used in the video. After a protester called a Trump supporter a racist, the man responded by raising his fist and shouting, "white power".

Biden officially announced his presidential campaign with a video featuring Trump's response to the 2017 rally in Charlottesville. Tim Scott, who is the only Black senator in the Republican meeting, claimed on Sunday that the video clip retweeted by the President was offensive and "indefensible". As an unidentified man and woman drive by in a golf cart decked with signs that say "Trump 2020" and "America First", they slow down to address protesters, one of whom is holding a sign that says "Make America Sane Again".

Azar declined to comment further when Tapper asked if it was a mistake by the President.

Trump's tenure in office has appeared to have emboldened white supremacist and nationalist groups, some of whom have embraced his presidency.

In recent weeks, Trump has remained steadfast in his opposition to renaming military bases and removing statues honoring leaders of the Confederacy even as members of his own party express openness to doing so. Last month, Twitter added fact-checking verification notices to Trump's tweets and last week hid a Trump tweet threatening violence against anti-racist protesters in Washington, D.C.
