“Today the President shared a video of people shouting ‘white power’ and said they were ‘great.’ Just like he did after Charlottesville,” Biden tweeted Sunday, referring to Trump’s comments after the deadly 2017 white supremacist rally and counterprotest in Virginia that there were "very fine people on both sides." 

“We’re in a battle for the soul of the nation — and the President has picked a side,” Biden added. “But make no mistake: it’s a battle we will win.”

On Sunday morning, Trump retweeted a video that included a demonstrator in a golf cart with a “Trump 2020” sign saying “white power.” 

“Thank you to the great people of The Villages,” Trump said in a post retweeting the video. “The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe is shot. See you soon!!!”

The tweet was deleted several hours later.
