Donald Trump tweets video from Florida retirement village showing supporter chanting ‘white power’ before deleting it

Published on

The video appeared to have been taken at The Villages in Florida, the world’s largest retirement village with over 110,000 residents, where pro- and anti-Trump supporters have been holding demonstrations and showed a man driving a golf cart with pro-Trump signs and flags shouting ‘white power’.

The clip also showed the anti-Trump protesters shouting ‘Nazi’, ‘racist’ and a number of other epithets at the Trump supporters.

Trump tweeted the video, saying: “Thank you to the great people of The Villages” before appearing to delete the message three hours later.

A White House spokesperson released a statement saying that the President had not heard the racist slogan.

“President Trump is a big fan of The Villages. He did not hear the one statement made on the video. What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters,” it read.
