Trump Retweets a Neo-Nazi ... Again

Donald Trump was so eager to mess with Jeb Bush on Friday that he didn't hesitate to retweet a neo-Nazi with the handle @WhiteGenocideTM, who's also tweeted out a cartoon of Trump in a Nazi uniform gassing Bernie Sanders.
That twitter user, who calls himself "Donald Trumpovitz," has a banner that reads "Get the f*** out of my country." His avatar photo has the caption "The man who wants to be Hitler," and his profile links to a pro-Adolf Hitler documentary and lists his location as "Jewmerica."

": Poor Jeb. I could've sworn I saw him outside Trump Tower the other day! "

The account, which Trump featured on his personal Twitter page, is littered with neo-Nazi content. In the user’s profile, there is a link to a website for an admiring documentary describing Adolf Hitler as “a god.” The tweet pinned at the top of the @WhiteGenocideTM account includes images of people identified as Jews covered with the common white supremacist slur “mud” and yellow Stars of David used during the Holocaust.
@WhiteGenocideTM’s avatar features a picture of the deceased American Nazi Party leader George Lincoln Rockwell. The profile background contains the phrase “Get the f*** out of my country.” The user also posted tweets praising Hitler.
Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the tweet. The user behind @WhiteGenocideTM also didn’t respond to Twitter messages from Yahoo.
As of this writing, Trump’s tweet quoting the neo-Nazi account had been live for more than six hours.
