Donald Trump may want to watch not only what he tweets himself, but also what he retweets. He has been highly criticized and ridiculed for his late night Twitter benders in which he goes off the rails leading some to wonder if he is drunk tweeting.
When you are running for President of the United States, it is one thing to “tell it like it is,” but it is quite another to tweet questionable statements, outright lies in order to smear your opponents, and insults to the wife of your opponent. Even worse, it is extremely damaging and speaks to one’s decision-making and judgment when you run for President of the United States and you retweet tweets from white supremacists on Twitter, numerous times.
On Wednesday afternoon, Trump retweeted a tweet praising himself. The tweet was done by Jason Bergkamp, who goes by @keksec_org. According to The Hill, Bergkamp writes for Vanguard 14, an online publication which discusses issues like “white nationalism and genocide.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has retweeted this particular white nationalist. He has retweeted this person at least SIX times since he declared his candidacy for the presidency.
This is not the only white nationalist/supremacist Trump has retweeted. He has also retweeted a tweet from another white supremacist, who uses the Twitter handle @WhiteGenocideTM, whose Twitter profile reveals he is a big fan of Hitler and the Nazis.
The troubling thing is, at this very moment, that retweet of the white supremacist by Donald Trump is still on his Twitter feed. Then again, so are the retweets that he did from this same racist, bigot previously.
