President Trump set off a firestorm Sunday morning when he retweeted a video (watch it here, but note language) of a Trump supporter shouting "white power" to counterprotesters in a Florida retirement community. The tweet came down about three hours later, and the White House said Trump hadn't realized what the man said. The story continues to percolate. Coverage:
- Alarmed aides: The tweet went up about 7:40am and set off what one White House official tells NBC News was a "five-alarm fire" among aides who wanted it taken down immediately. The problem: Trump was golfing at his club in Virginia and had put his phone away, per NBC. Efforts to reach deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino to have him take it down were unsuccessful.
