The white supremacist Trump promotes white supremacist online rag

The timing of tweeting out a link to a white supremacist website while a white supremacist terrorist attack is occurring within the cities of one of our major allies.

I'm so surprised.

I'm guessing this was a mistake of some kind?? The "via Breitbart" thing makes it seem like Trump (or his social media staff) was on Breitbart and accidentally hit a "share to twitter" link...

Do you think Trump is one of those guys who says that he has no idea about this topic but then posts the Breitbart article about it?


Also I want to bring up his daddy's arrest at a KKK rally again.

He knew exactly what he was doing.


I thought he could only delete tweets if they were reposted with typos corrected?

Consider this too...

He wants people to read about this through the spin of a borderline neo Nazi publication, and there's only one good reason why he wants that.

Interesting... Tweet was deleted. WHat's the deal, what was it?

Really surprising to see it deleted too because Trump has posted stuff from places worse than Breitbart before and they've stayed up and he's just doubled-down on it.

I get the impression that this was originally another one of his scheduled tweets to stir the pot of public division and then someone on his social media team was asked to pull it in light of what's happened in NZ and the PR blowback it might cause. Or maybe they really are this stupid, Occam's Razor and whatnot.

I don't think he's actually allowed to do that, right?
Technically he can, but the tweet will remain public record, since I don't think Twitter has disabled the ability to delete tweets.
I feel like, with the increased usage of the platform by public officials, Twitter should have been able to do something about that.

What a weird coincidence that he would do it today of all days. Its almost like this is to make up for that earlier "thoughts and prayers to the victims" tweet to his base.
