Trump un­furls a Nazi blooper in tweet

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

ANOTHER day cam­paign­ing for pres­i­dent, another con­tro­versy for US ty­coon Don­ald Trump, ( pic­tured) who’s been lam­pooned over a tweet that ap­peared to show Nazis march­ing un­der the White House.

“Make Amer­ica Great Again” was the catch­phrase, along­side a mon­tage of the US flag merged with his face, ban­knotes, the White House and march­ing armed sol­diers.

Just one prob­lem, the sol­diers weren’t Amer­i­can he­roes, but men dressed up as Nazis from the Waf­fen SS.

Crit­ics mocked Trump for fail­ing to spot the dif­fer­ence be­tween he­roes and Nazis, who were re­spon­si­ble for the mur­der of six mil­lion Jews. His cam­paign swiftly deleted the tweet.

A spokesman blamed the foul- up on an in­tern who “apol­o­gised and im­me­di­ately deleted the tweet”.
