Trump deletes retweet of white nationalist account

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Wednesday retweeted a user named “WhiteGenocideTM” before deleting the message.

“@realDonaldTrump, you always have the best crowds,” the tweet reads. “#MakeAmericaGreatAgain.”

Though deleted, the tweet was preserved by Politwoops and many Twitter users who shared screenshots:

It also lists the user’s location as “Jewmerica” and links to a documentary series defending Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Trump came under fire late last month for retweeting another post by the same user. That tweet mocked GOP presidential candidate in a crude photoshop with a sign reading “vote Trump.”
