Trump shares, deletes video of “white power” chant in The Villages

THE VILLAGES, Fla. — President Trump has deleted a video that he retweeted earlier this morning of a man shouting “White Power” during a pro-Trump golf cart parade in The Villages.

Archived tweet courtesy of Factsquared Inc.; a link to Trump’s deleted retweet can be found here.

In the video, which can still be found on the original poster's Twitter account, verbal confrontations are captured between some pro and anti-Trump protesters.

The “White Power” chant occurs at the seven second mark.

CONTENT WARNING, STRONG LANGUAGE: 

The president retweeted this video with the following comment:

“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!!!”

Trump deleted his retweet at around 11:00 a.m. EST after it spent several hours on his Twitter account; multiple websites that serve to archive the president's tweets corroborate this, see here and here.

So far, the video has more than 4.8 million views; no relevant comments from the executive branch have been made in response at the time of this report.

UPDATE, 6:18 p.m. - White House spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement that the president "did not hear the one statement made on the video. What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters."
