(Newser) – A Donald Trump tweet featured soldiers in Nazi uniforms along with the White House, the US flag, $100 bills, and Trump himself, but the campaign stresses that it was a mistake made by a "young intern" and the Waffen-SS logos are not part of Trump's vision for America. The image—which appears over the message, "We need real leadership. We need results. Let's put the US back into business!"—included a stock photo of what appears to be war re-enactors, not actual Nazi troops, the Guardian reports.

"A young intern created and posted the image and did not see the very faded figures within the flag of the stock photo," a Trump spokesman tells CNN. "The intern apologized and immediately deleted the tweet." It's not clear whether the intern had to hear Trump's catchphrase: "You're fired." Nazis or no Nazis, Trump is now the front-runner for the GOP nomination, according to the latest USA Today/Suffolk University poll, which puts Trump at 17%, Jeb Bush at 14%, and five others in single digits. But he also came off worst of the seven in hypothetical head-to-heads against Hillary Clinton, and Suffolk analysts suspect his campaign might fade like those of Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann in 2012.
