Trump shares video of 'great people' shouting 'white power' at protesters

·1 min read

Donald Trump has shared a video showing a supporter yelling "white power" at protesters in a Florida retirement community.

"Thank you to the great people of The Villages," the president said in a post to his nearly 83 million Twitter followers on Sunday morning. "The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe is shot. See you soon!!!"

The video shows a series of clips of protesters on either side of a parade of golf carts with drivers holding American flags and signs supporting the president's re-election campaign.

In the first clip, a man in a "Veterans for Trump" shirt pump his fist and yells "white power".

The president has frequently been accused of courting white nationalists and in recent days has threatened Black Lives Matter demonstrators with violence and arrests.

His video post followed the announcement of federal charges against at least four protesters who attempted to take down a statue of Andrew Jackson in Washington DC after the president signed an executive order "to ensure that any person or group that destroys or vandalizes a monument, memorial, or statue is prosecuted to the fullest extent" despite already-existing federal law.
