Trump is letting his true colors show on Twitter, yet again. Watch the controversial videos he shared on his Twitter timeline inside…
Trump caused the Internet to go into a tizzy after he retweeted a video that featured one of his supporters yelling “white power!” at anti-Trump protesters.
Of course, he claims he didn’t hear the man yell “white power” when you can hear him YELL it loud and clear. The White House defended Trump retweeting the video, saying he shared it in response to people who demonize his supporters.
The WH press secretary is saying Pres Trump tweeted out a video of Trump supporters chanting “white power” because those supporters are often “demonized.”
Note: Shouting white power is unequivocally racist and something that would lead to someone being rightly demonized. https://t.co/SI89NI7nEx

Here’s the clip he shared to his 82.5 million Twitter followers below:
Do not let Trump try to hide his racism.
This video of his white power tweet should be retweeted from now until November.pic.twitter.com/y3Eeo1kJd3

If this isn’t racist then….
#45 caught a lot of backlash for the tweeted video, so he ended up deleting it.
Oh, but it didn’t stop there:
Trump also retweeted a controversial video of a white couple aiming their guns at peaceful protesters.

A white couple was filmed pointing their guns at peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters in St. Louis. Demonstrators were making their way to the home of Mayor Lyda Krewson to demand she resign after she jeopardized the safety of protesters who want to defund the police. No one was think of Ken and Karen, but they just had to inject themselves where they weren’t needed in the least bit. Watch the clip above.
For once, Republican Senator Tim Scott (SC) condemned Trump’s actions, saying they were wrong and he should delete his Tweet showcasing the “White Power” rhetoric.
Of course, he’s still not calling a spade a spade and calling out the head of the party that he chose for whatever reason for being the racist P.O.S. that he is, but baby steps…we guess.
While Trump is RT’ing white supremacy rhetoric and those actions in support of it, Forever President Barack Obama is tweeting about the impact of professional black baseball players leading to unification:
Today I’m tipping my hat to all the giants in the Negro Leagues, from Satchel Paige to Toni Stone and so many others. Their brave example, first set 100 years ago, changed America’s pastime for the better––opening it up for new generations of players and fans alike. pic.twitter.com/05jWocKs17
