It is not frequent to see Donald Trump again down from a thing he claimed, and truthfully it is not actually distinct if this is a backpedal but he felt compelled to delete a video clip in which 1 of his supporters can be listened to blatantly chanting "white power". The man who is heard shouting "white power" was responding to protesters shouting "racist".

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

Trump's tweet was no longer on Twitter late Sunday morning. There also has also been a push to remove Confederate monuments and to rename military bases that honor figures who fought in the Civil War against the Union. Later, when the president warned that efforts by protesters to set up an "autonomous zone" in Washington, D.C., would be "met with serious force!", Twitter put up a similar message and blocked it from being retweeted.

Biden was similarly ensnared in a scandal about racism during the early days of the Democratic presidential primary after he praised the "civility" of the segregationists he worked with at the beginning of his time in the Senate.
