Great People? Trump Retweets Video of Supporters Yelling White Power

Since his first tweet, posted all the way back in May of 2009, his feed has been full of misinformation and offensive rhetoric. After 11 years, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey finally took a small stand and has marked some of the President’s messages as false.

Rather than reign in his tweets, Trump only raged against Dorsey. On Sunday morning Trump used his feed to amplify a QAnon supporter and deny that he had been briefed about Russian bounties. The President also retweeted a video where some of his supporters yell “white power.”

Trump captioned the message, “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!!”

The people driving by in the first 10 seconds of the video can clearly be heard uttering the supremacist phrase.

The video quickly went viral and HHS Secretary, Alex Azar, was asked about the President’s retweet while appearing on CNN with Jake Tapper. Tapper asked Azar if it was a message he stood by.

Azar astonishingly replied, “I have not seen the video or the tweet. But neither the president, his administration, nor I would do anything to be supportive of white supremacy.”
