Trump and White Power

Summary

Trump shared the video on his @realDonaldTrump account, which has more than 82 million followers, with the message, “Thank you to the great people of The Villages.” The tweet was deleted about three hours later following an uproar over the phrase “white power,” a racist slogan used by white supremacists.

In a statement, White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said Trump did not hear the use of the slogan.

“President Trump is a big fan of The Villages. He did not hear the one statement made on the video,” Deere said. “What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters.”
