One day after promoting a video of his supporters shouting “white power!” and calling them “great people,” President Donald Trump Monday morning retweeted video of a couple pointing an AR-15 and a handgun at Black Lives Matter activists in St. Louis.
It was his first tweet of the day. As of 10:30 AM Trump, who has no events except lunch on his official schedule today, has posted 29 tweets or retweets so far.
On Sunday Trump’s retweet of the “white power” video was so explosive he was forced to delete it, and the White House was forced to issue a statement. That statement claimed Trump had not heard the shouts of “white power!”
On Monday, many expressed new outrage.

Why did @realDonaldTrump retweet this photo of 2 white racist MF’ers pointing guns at peaceful black protesters? Because #TrumpIsARacist. Feeding red meat to his base.#TrumpIsTheEnemyOfThePeople#WeNeedJoe#VoteJoeBidenToSaveAmerica https://t.co/TRDA09Cwrx

By tweeting this, trump is telling his followers it is perfectly alright to point guns at protestors and threaten their lives. This is a vile, sick man in the oval office. We must do all we can to make sure this is his last year in office by voting him and the GOP enablers out. https://t.co/X0fWdTNnML

Of course, he retweeted it, Trump wants violent confrontation. A President would have sort to diffuse the tensions. Trump seeks to use them like the scumbag crook he is and he doesn’t care who gets hurt.#biden2020 https://t.co/4Creg6PhxQ

If you think the stereotype high school educated white redneck Trump supporter is accurate, look at the other big part – rich, white, exurb, #dreamhorder greedy, scared, entitled #Karens and their husbands. https://t.co/g84r7UHLcO
