Trump's 'white power' retweet set off 'five-alarm fire' in White House

A video shot on June 14th of a pro Trump golf cart parade through Lake Sumter Landing in The Villages Florida is garnering attention after the President re-tweeted the video

The President said, "and I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists - because they should be condemned totally", Fox News quoted him as saying.

Trump's behavior was so unusual and erratic that it convinced several senior administration officials that the president was "delusional", according to the report.

Putin "just outplays" Trump during their one-on-one interactions, according to CNN's report.

CNN's Carl Bernstein spoke to multiple sources over a four-month period, all of whom were anonymously cited in the story but who largely confirmed details that have been previously reported by other outlets and testified to in public hearings.

"Indian-Americans for Trump" has been formed with the only objective to garner active support of all Americans, but particularly among Americans of the Indian Subcontinent, to have Trump reelected as the President, said its founder A D Amar.

One person familiar with nearly all the conversations with the leaders of Russia, Turkey, Canada, Australia and western Europe characterized Trump's calls with them to be "abominations" so grievous to USA national security interests, according to CNN. The White House did not respond to a request for comment from CNN.

Former national security adviser John Bolton said on CNN's State of the Union that there's a chance Trump retweeted the video after seeing a "Trump 2020" sign in it and didn't pay attention to the audio. "But he made very clear to me that he stands with the people of The Villages, our great seniors, men and women in the villages, who support this president", she said.

Sources told CNN that Trump disparaged Merkel in a "very aggressive" manner, calling her "stupid", and accusing her of "being in the pocket of the Russians".


Some of the harshest depictions of Trump's lack of preparedness on critical issues stem from his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But the president has previously boasted that he's eagle eyed when it comes to his social media posts and endorsements.

Meanwhile, private calls between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump sometimes had the tone of "two guys in a steam bath", according to the report.

Mr Trump was so abusive to long-standing American allies that senior United States officials became convinced he posed a national security risk, according to a report published by Carl Bernstein, the journalist who broke the Watergate scandal.

"Erdogan took him to the cleaners", one source told CNN. Trump said that U.S. intelligence did not inform him about the reports before because they had thought them to be not credible enough.

Indeed, Trump's controversial approach to handling phone calls on issues of national security with foreign leaders has been well documented in both media reports and congressional testimony.

Officials said that while the president gets lots of content to share from aides and allies, the "white power" incident is a 'lesson to all of us in the White House to be more aware of what's out there'.
