However, it was this video that Trump shared with his more than 82 million followers on Twitter along with the words: "Thanks to the great people at The Villages", when he later criticized: "The radical left does nothing to the Democrats.".

"Thank you to the great people of The Villages". Corrupt Joe is shot.

Mr Trump's tenure in office has appeared to have emboldened white supremacist and nationalist groups, some of whom have embraced his presidency.

As many have heard the news yet not seen the original tweet from Trump, we have done some digging to find out more about the original video. The White House said Trump had not heard the slogan.

Ahead of the tweet was deleted, South Carolina Sen.

Black Senator Tim Scott called the actions of trump offensive.

The US Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar responded to the video played on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper on Sunday. Last week, Trump tweeted two videos of Black men attacking white victims, asking, "Where are the protesters?". It is a legitimate conclusion to draw.

He said: "He should not have retweeted and he should just take it down".

The President deleted the retweet later Sunday morning.

Andrew Cuomo said as other states experienced surges in infections. "This was not a smart policy to rush reopening". That a virus spreads in closed indoor areas that have air-conditioned systems. "It's not just indoor dining".

The video shows Trump supporters shouting the slogans. An unidentified man and woman driving a golf cart with Trump campaign posters can be heard chanting "white power".

"It was so profanity laced, the entire thing was offensive - certainly the comment about the white power was offensive", he said. I would absolutely condemn that, ' Gee said. Scott, who is the only Black Republican in the Senate, further quoted by AP report as saying, "I think it's indefensible".

'No one apparently knows who the individual was, ' Calandro told CNN, adding, 'This was an unfortunate incident.

It cited the toppling of a statue of President Ulysses S. Grant in San Francisco as an example of the "violent extremists' campaign against our country", but did not say that numerous monuments singled out by protesters in the wake of Mr George Floyd's death had been of Confederate leaders.

Trump often denies his language is racist or inflammatory and dismisses criticism of such rhetoric as political correctness.

In recent weeks he pushed for a tough crackdown against the sometimes violent protests against injustice and police brutality. One protester carried a "White Trash" sign.

The video shows pro- and anti-Trump protesters in The Villages - a large community for those 55 years and older in Sumter, Florida - clashing with one another over politics.

Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defence and Education Fund, told CBS" "Face the Nation' that "this really is not about the president taking it down".
