Donald Trump Casually Retweets ‘WhiteGenocide’ Account

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday retweeted a photoshopped image of a former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) standing outside of Trump Tower from a user with the handle @WhiteGenocideTM.

Here’s the tweet:

The user who Trump retweeted set its location to “Jewmerica.” The user’s bio also links to a documentary that bills itself as “the untold story about the most reviled man in history,” Adolf Hitler.

It wouldn’t be the first time Trump, or whoever was control of his Twitter account at the moment, retweeted a user who appeared to have white supremacist sympathies. Trump thanked a Dutch white supremacist in October for supporting him.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
