After protesters tried to topple a statue outside of the White House, Trump took to Twitter asking protesters why they weren’t mad about the violence shown in videos of black men attacking white people.
Trump wrote, “Looks what’s going on here. Where are the protesters?,” above a retweeted video of a black man repeatedly punching a white department store employee.
He then retweeted another video of a black man pushing a white woman on the subway writing, “so terrible.”
Critics lashed out at the president for provoking interracial hate and violence, and for trying to equate police brutality to individual crimes.
