President Donald Trump doesn’t miss a step when it comes to displaying his insensitivity, and apparent show of support for racism. Trump supported a video of a racist white man shouting white power by retweeting the video. And, just when you would think the president would stop there- he added to his retweet of the video in saying:
“Thank you to the great people of The Villages. The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe is shot. See you soon!!!”
“He should not have retweeted and he should just take it down… It is indefensible,” GOP Sen. Tim Scott reacts to the video President Trump shared of a man driving a golf cart with Trump campaign posters, chanting "white power." #CNNSOTU https://t.co/76wZzokkUw pic.twitter.com/4zk2rFndcP

It’s easy to think that the mounting backlash persuaded Trump to taking down the racist video he supported by way of retweet. It more suspected that one of his aides convinced him to take down the video. Personality, it is easy to fake from the mouth- but ones actions are automatic in who they are. The brain doesn’t lie. The White reportedly said that Trump only heard enthusiasm in the video, not someone displaying racism. It’s interesting that Trump is now motivated for a win in the fall when just recently he doubted his own win in the fall against Joe Biden.
