UPDATE: The Trump tweetstorm has taken down a controversial post in which someone shouts “white power” at a pro-Trump rally in Florida.
The White House claimed that President Trump didn’t hear the comment before posting.
“He did not hear the one statement made on the video. What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.
The video was taken at The Villages retirement community, located near Orlando. It showed Trump supporters in golf carts and detractors holding signs engaged in shouts.
“Thank you to the great people of The Villages,” the President posted alongside the clip. “The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe is shot. See you soon!!!”

Watch the deleted post below:
EARLIER: President Donald Trump is once again visiting his Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, VA today, getting in a few swings at the little white ball.
But before he departed for the links, he tweeted out some swings at Joe Biden, his likely opponent in the forthcoming presidential election, calling him by a new nickname and denigrating his IQ and previous interactions with Russia.
The Commander-in-Tweet also denied knowledge of incidents suggested by a New York Times report about a bounty placed by Russian soldiers on British and American troops in Afghanistan.
Finally, a day after tweeting out a long list of people being sought by law authorities for vandalism in the recent uprisings, Trump also mentioned his new executive order on vandalism of federal monuments. He claimed the order has stopped the widespread assaults on statues and buildings under threat of a long prison sentence.
We’ll update as more communications roll in later today. The tweetstorm so far:
