President Trump removed Sunday his retweet of a protest video that showed a supporter yelling white power, a comment that the White House said he never heard.
President Trump is a big fan of The Villages. He did not hear the one statement made on the video, said White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere. What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters.
The two-minute video taken at The Villages, a retirement community in Florida, showed anti-Trump protesters yelling at Trump supporters as they rolled by in golf carts decorated with pro-Trump signs and American flags.
After one man yelled racist, racist, a Trump supported shouted back white power!
Sen. Tim Scott, South Carolina Republican, said earlier Sunday that the president should remove the video, adding that he did not want to play politics with what he described as the indefensible video.
Certainly the comment about the white power was offensive. Theres no question, said Mr. Scott on CNNs State of the Union. I mean, we can play politics with it or we cant. Im not going to. I think its indefensible. We should take it down. Thats what I think.
The raucous clash showed anti-Trump protesters yelling Nazi, f Trump, fing Nazi pigs, and other profanities at the Trump supporters. One protester carried a White Trash sign.
Well, listen: If you watched the entire video, you cant play it because it was so profanity-laced, said Mr. Scott. The entire thing was offensive.

yep...walls closing in...
is black power still ok?
Well, if I wanted to embarrass Trump heres what I would do. I would go stand with a bunch of Trump supporters. And then when the moment was right, Id yell white power.
Tim Scott almost breaking an ankle running out to the media to say something...
You’re right. The Left knows how to plant people like this.
That’s the question I have been asking myself all morning.
A lot of Antifa live in The Villages do they?
“””is black power still ok?””””
I have black powDer. Is that racist?
Any doubt this was a setup and that guy is a troll
Why would Trump retweet a video of foul-mouthed protests against himself? This seems to be sabotage from within the campaign. Katie?
Then endless protesting and statue removal is supposed to make people vote for Trump. I think that’s the train of logic they are going for.
i could not find any statue of stokely carmichael in a brief web search...
Lol. But do they force the president to retweet it? Thats the magic question of the day.
“Well, if I wanted to embarrass Trump heres what I would do. I would go stand with a bunch of Trump supporters. And then when the moment was right, Id yell white power.
How do you get Trump to paste it on his Twitter?
He made a mistake, and corrected it. Biden’s whole career is one of Racism, no big deal.
i do not know, but if you have any white powDer, perhaps at least you had better not call it that.
“But do they force the president to retweet it?”
Heh. You beat me to asking the question by about a minute.
Wow. BLM / Antifa are at The Villages now??
Cool. Im usually the one thats behind a minute or so.
