The President thanked the "great people" shown in the video. Corrupt Joe is shot. In the first 10 seconds of the video, one of the president's supporters repeatedly shouts "white power" at the demonstrators. "See you soon!" Trump tweeted, as he shared the video that opens with an elderly white man in a golf cart decorated with Trump signs being heckled by a counterprotester who asks "where's your white hood?"

Trump's tweet has since been removed. But make no mistake: "it's a battle we will win", the former vice president tweeted. "But Trump is tweeting a video promoting 'white power, '" Perez said, adding, "This president tries to claim ignorance, but the consistency of his actions - on Charlottesville and most recently Lafayette Square - drown out his vacuous words".

In response to a protester shouting "Where's your white hood?" and other taunts, the man in the golf cart pumps his fist in the air and says "White power!" twice.

He said CAIR and the American Muslim community are standing in solidarity with all those challenging anti-Black racism and white supremacy.

Judd Deere, a White House spokesman, said Trump "is a big fan of The Villages".

"There's no question: He should not have retweeted it; he should just take it down", Scott said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Protesters lined the street, many of them screaming epithets, accusing the Trump supporters of being racists and holding signs calling the president a bigot.

The statement did not say which part of its Community Guidelines or ToS Dr Disrespect violated. During that stream, Dr Disrespect walked into the men's bathroom while the stream was active.

But the tweet today underscores what has become a hallmark of his presidency since he took office: a willingness to embrace divisive comments when they are coming from people he perceives to be his supporters.

Tim Scott said during an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday.

While the president has always been accused of being racist and using the language of white supremacists and similar far-right groups, Trump has often said he believes he is the "least racist person in the world." .

In recent weeks, Trump has remained steadfast in his opposition to renaming military bases and removing statues honoring leaders of the Confederacy even as members of his own party express openness to doing so.

Twitter had earlier flagged a tweet from Trump and another from the White House's official account that warned protesters in Minnesota following the death of George Floyd that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts".

"We're in a battle for the soul of the nation - and the President has picked a side", Biden tweeted.
