There is something profoundly racist about Trump and his staff.
A photo tweeted by a Twitter account (@WhiteGenocideTM) promoted by Donald Trump. The photo
has since been taken down.

GOP front runner Donald Trump has been accused of racism in the past, but on Friday morning, Trump retweeted a white supremacist website promoting Adolf Hitler.
The tweet was a jab at rival, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and showed him looking down-and-out, holding a “Vote Trump” sign.
“@WhiteGenocideTM: @realDonaldTrump Poor Jeb. I could’ve sworn I saw him outside Trump Tower the other day! pic.twitter.com/e5uLRubqla“The tweet originated from an account called @WhiteGenocideTM, which is promoting a pro-Hitler movie called, The Greatest Story Never Told. The trailer for the film calls Hitler the “saviour of Europe.” The website also includes an interview with Holocaust-denier Ursula Haverbeck.

One of the many troubling tweets from the account is an animated picture of Donald Trump dressed as a Nazi, about to gas potential Democratic rival Sen. Bernie Sanders. Sanders is Jewish.

Trump tweeted the image of Bush with the racist twitter handle to his nearly 6 million followers Friday morning. It’s not the first time Trump has been associated with the fascist leader of Nazi Germany who was responsible for genocide against millions of Jewish people and other groups.
