Trump Retweets Video of Supporter Shouting “White Power!”

HeadlineJun 29, 2020

President Trump approvingly retweeted a video Sunday of a man in The Villages retirement community in Florida shouting “white power” at antiracist protesters.

Trump supporter: “White power! White power!”

Protester: “There you go: 'white power.'”

Trump shared the video Sunday morning with the caption, “Thank you to the great people of The Villages. The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall.” The man who shouted “white power” was driving a golf cart with a “Trump 2020” sign on its windshield. The video was removed from Trump’s Twitter feed about three hours later. A White House spokesperson said Trump “did not hear the one statement made on the video. What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters.”
