Kayleigh: Trump Tweeted ‘White Power’ Video to Stand With His ‘Demonized’ Supporters

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News on Monday morning that the reason why President Donald Trump tweeted a video that featured one of his supporters chanting “white power” is he was trying to signal to his “demonized” supporters that he stands by them.

The press secretary, meanwhile, asserted Trump “did not hear the phrase” in the video and took the tweet down when it was signaled to him. At the same time, she said, the president made it “very clear” to her that “he stands with the people of The Villages” because they support him.

“He stands for them and his point in tweeting out that video was to stand with his supporters, who are oftentimes demonized, so he took it down but he does stand with the men and women of The Villages,” she concluded.
