President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted approvingly of a video showing one of his supporters chanting 'white power,' a racist slogan associated with white supremacists. He later deleted the tweet and the White House said the president had not heard 'the one statement' on the video.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a roundtable about America's seniors, in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Monday, June 15, 2020, in Washington. WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted approvingly of a video showing one of his supporters chanting "white power," a racist slogan associated with white supremacists. He later deleted the tweet and the White House said the president had not heard "the one statement" on the video.

"Thank you to the great people of The Villages," Trump tweeted. Moments into the video clip he shared, a man driving a golf cart displaying pro-Trump signs and flags shouts 'white power." The video also shows anti-Trump protesters shouting "Nazi," "racist," and profanities at the Trump backers. Trump's decision to highlight a video featuring a racist slogan comes amid a national reckoning over race following the deaths of George Floyd and other Black Americans. Floyd, a Black Minneapolis man, died after a white police officer pressed his knee into his neck for several minutes.

Trump has been directing his reelection message at the same group of disaffected, largely white voters who backed him for years ago. In doing so, he has stoked racial divisions in the country at a time when tensions are already high. He also has played into anti-immigrant anxieties by falsely claiming that people who have settled in this country commit crimes at greater rates than those who were born in the U.S.

CTV post the same new, then repost it👎

He probably only deleted it because he knew Twitter would

In the MSM today:racism, racism, racism, protests, protests, protests, Covid, Covid, Covid, Trump bad, Trump Bad, hate crime, racism, racism, Trump still bad, Gay Pride, it’s hot out, defund the police, protest, protest, racism, Trump remains bad. No word on our debt or stupid PM

Selective outrage from the biased media. Crickets on this however.

It still was seen by millions And the media is re playing it over and over. Trump is a clever racist sleeze bag. Vote him OUT

What Canadian tweeted this then deleted it? Hints: 1. Trudeau’s top advisor 2. Canadian media won’t report it.

More libtard paid propaganda

He might have his reasons. Can we just ask him?

BlackFaceTrudeau x3 get real CTV defundMSM

Probably said who fucking wrote that on my twitter, then realized it wasnt his private emails and deleted it saying whow, that was close.

What a maroon

This guy is awesome for the USA. Hee haw

Your reporting of Donald Trump is biased and disgusting. You are even quoting CNN reports for God's sake. How does it feel to be the new tabloid news network on the block. Shame on you.

We know who he is underneath.... right Mr little moustache

Did you nitwits tweet about Gerald Butts map of the USA?

Probably didn’t see it.

IT'S OK TO BE WHITE AND PROUD....

SCUMBAG.

You must have missed this one from Butts so here it is. He also deleted it and claimed he didn’t read it before posting. POTUS needs to see what our prime clowns personal advisor thinks of the U.S

And yet in Canada. Not a word from the media.

Maybe you should report Gerald Butts racist rant instead. As CANADIAN TELEVISION.

Trump has the mainstream media figured out. It’s funny. He will win the next election. I am however not a fan.

Except the old man in the video who said white power was saying it in jest because the anti Trump protesters were screaming Nazi at them. But expecting the mainstream media to understand sarcasm is probably a stretch.

CTV with TDS. Pathetic hacks.

You really believe he does this 24/7?

CTV I missed your tweet about Gerald butts tweet the other day. Selective tweets I see

Looks like a big baby telling his mommy he won't delete the tweet.

Funny how you never mention Biden......

We all grew up playing cowboys and Indians. We all dressed up as hobo's for Halloween. Everyone watched and laughed at the Archie Bunker show. What's the problem? Everyone has just turned out to be little babies now. I never once thought of Aunt Jemima as racist syrup.

Pig!!!!

Chant? One senior said it once in sarcastic jest after being called a “racist nazi”. FakeNewsMedia

I think hes just distracting from bountygate

It was a video of conservative seniors driving golf carts being called Nazi by senior democrats. The guy said “white power” sarcastically. Trump didn’t see it in the video because all you hear is left wing idiots screaming at people w/ the upmost bigotry. Fake news POS CTV

The guy is an idiot, but please we would like to see more stories calling out Trudeau suspending the democratic institution, and recklessly spending $300m on international projects while our own economy is literally sinking.

On one side you have people yelling at you that you are a racist, supremacist, etc, that you are worst than hitler,. The msm has significant bias, aka TDS20. The context of the video, like most context out of America, is twisted among the ironic.

I guess that is his plan B for re-election. The race card.

That's a shame. If it's already for all the other colors & races to chant '? power', then why should 'white power' be any different? The major problem with such a tweet, if that it implies that Caucasians are lowering themselves to the level of the other racist chanters.

Countdown for his pathetic defenders who truly have no soul in their hearts or brains in their heads: He was joking You misunderstood it Can’t you take scarcasm? He’s just telling it like it is Butthurt libs That’s not what happened FAKE NEWS MAGA

white power 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 look at me liberal idiots im being racist 😂😂😂😂😂

Anything about butts and his racist American map tweet?

'He deleted it so obviously it never actually happened. FakeNews.' -Conservative idiots, everywhere

CTV concentrate on the corrupt government we have here before attacking trump, TrudeauBlackface TrudeauDictatorship

WATCH!!!

My PM wore blackface and mocked black people He was then re-elected with the help of people masquerading as “progressives” and a complicit media that accepted his bribes As a Canadian that is far more important to me than any foreign politician could ever be

You need to watch this amazing 10 minute red pill. Covid911

The white supremacists are losing to the black supremacists.

Hey CTV did you hear about JOE BIDEN SEXUAL ASSAULT CASE and did you hear about JOE BIDEN telling BLACKS if you VOTE Trump then you AINT black

Pretty much everyone commenting on this thread is a strictly MSM watching 🐑

Racist

“Trudeau’s Top Advisor tweets racist map of United States, then deletes it.”

PM Butts also tweeted then deleted ⬇️

The media is so corrupt. Again context is everything.

Nothing ?

Actually, what President Trump retweeted showed a video of his opponents waving signs that were derogatory to himself. It was *after* it became apparent that another person in the video sarcastically chanted 'white power' that the President deleted it.

This isn’t news. When he was made aware of the chant he deleted it.

Our prime minister did blackface multiple times

Here is the tweet Trump re-tweeted, then deleted today wherein he supports racist seniors in Florida yelling, 'White Power'. These things are never REALLY gone...

I think he’s losing it... the stress of losing the presidency is affecting him like the mad emperor.

I saw the video it bs at best trump chances of winning this election went down from 100% to 75%

New karen caught on camera coughing on baby (Let's Talk EP6) via YouTube

I cannot stand that man. He's gotta go. Wake up America!

In Canada, where operates, gmbutts tweets this, then deletes it, then says he didn't read it, then gets caught commenting on what he didn't read, but not a word from about it.

Guess CTV missed Gerry Butts Tweeting this derogatory map of the US then deleted it .. of course CTV would not dare report on Butts for fear of retribution .. lame MSM pure bias

realDonaldTrump just confirmed he is a firm member of The Ku Klux Klan, and a 'Proud Nationalist' To every other Race in North America - are you sure you want a NAZI in office? He doesn't care about anyone but White Bigots!

Media should be worried about all the lies and bias reporting they are doing.

And suppressed multiple incidents of racist behavior by PMJT.

What about Butts and his racist American Map he tweeted about Anything.. I doubt it.

Honestly I think he knows he’s lost the election and is just pushing buttons at this point

Too little too late. 😩

Does the Prime Minister look normal to you

CTV posts garbage and fake news constantly

The man is a FOOL.

You promote BLM violent protests that have destroyed lives, you spread defund the police, you spew pro leftist propaganda, you blame covid spread on 1 trump rally by not the multiple protests. You agree with erasing history. What’s your point here?Why not start on the pedophiles?

This surprises someone?

Focus on the real issue: the rampant global scale pedophilia. 8 million children per year are raped to death.

They all do crazy stuff to divert our attention from the biggest plague on Earth: mass scale child rape. They are creating distractions and we are all immersed in all the no sense while they are raping 8 million children per year to death.

White power = bad black power = perfectly fine

Blue power motherfukers lol

Trump is a racist...doesn't everyone 'get' that? How stupid can you be?

I don't think he needs more fuel on the fire

Trump gets caught allowing Putin to place bounties on the lives of American soldiers. So to distract everyone from that he tweets out “white power”. It’s a bold strategy, let’s see if it pays off for him.

Thanks for this

Trump Shares Video That Includes Supporter Shouting 'White Power' At ProtestersIn his since-deleted tweet, the president thanked the 'great people' of The Villages, a retirement community in Florida. That's not an excuse. You are responsible for what you retweet. Not surprising. He also doesn't hear his national security briefings. Canada's PM has been accused of assault, is under many ethics investigations, wore black face on at least 3 occasions and yet the liberal hack media are obsessed with American nonsense.
