Here’s one way to take some attention off of the report that Russia paid Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers. Today the president tweeted this video from the Florida retirement community, The Villages. The video shows some people protesting what appears to be a golf-cart parade in support of Donald Trump. The video isn’t a model of good behavior on either side, so there is no reason for the president of the United States to share it. BUT what makes it indefensible to share is the moment where one man shouts “white power.” Trump tweets that man is among “the great people of The Villages.”
After being heavily condemned by people on both sides of the aisle, Trump (or someone on his staff) deleted the tweet.
This was the full video Trump tweeted.
The tweet was even condemned by the Senate’s one Black Republican senator.
