President Donald Trump on Sunday retweeted - and then deleted - a two-minute video that featured a Florida Trump supporter yelling, "White power!" while driving a golf cart by anti-Trump protesters.

The video appeared to have been taken at The Villages, a Florida retirement community, and showed duelling demonstrations between Trump supporters and opponents. He did not hear the one statement made on the video. In response, the man driving the golf cart is heard repeating "white power" while pumping his fist in the air as he drives out of frame.

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

On CNN's "State of the Union", Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said he had not seen the video but broadly denounced white supremacy.

"He should not have retweeted it", Scott said, "and he should just take it down". According to both NBC News and the Washington Post, Trump was mostly moved to do so due to Sen.

The video shared by the president showed several pro-Trump seniors in Florida having an exchange with anti-Trump protestors and supporters of Black Lives Matter and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. At one point, the protestor steps in front of a golf cart before the driver hits the gas, bumping into her.

"Obviously neither the president, his administration nor I would do anything to be supportive of white supremacy or anything that would support discrimination of any kind", Azar said when asked about Trump's tweet.

While the president has always been accused of being racist and using the language of white supremacists and similar far-right groups, Trump has often said he believes he is the "least racist person in the world." .

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