Entertainment People think this Trump supporter did a 'white power sign’ while introducing his Mount Rushmore speech
White Power-Video: Donald Trump spreads racist slogans on Twitter
© dpa US President Donald Trump has tweeted again. US President Donald Trump shared a video on Twitter on Sunday in which one of his supporters roars a slogan that is widely viewed as racist in the United States. The video shows protesters protesting against the president as supporters drive past in golf carts. One of Trump's supporters then shouts at the demonstrators: “White Power”. This slogan is used primarily by racist groups in the USA.
Trump supporter Mary Hart has come under fire for what many believe to be a “white power sign” before she introduced Donald Trump on stage for his Mount Rushmore rally on Friday evening.
The former Entertainment Tonight host took to the stage to welcome Trump and said:
We welcome you, President Trump, our First Lady Melania and your whole family. There are so many people that I want to introduce very quickly but I want to say thank you [Republican] Governor [Kristi] Noem for making this possible.
But then as she was thanking the “incredible audience”, she raised both hands up to face level and touched her index finger with her thumb.

A father and son went on a bike ride in Estes Park, Colorado, when they encounter six trophy bull elks strolling towards their path on Saturday (June 27). "My son and I both riding our bikesin Old Fall River Road at Rocky Mountain National Park and came across a group of six trophy bull elks strolling towards us," the filmer said. "We stopped, waited, and watch these magnificent creatures pass us. "It was a once in a lifetime experience."
In 2019, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) added the symbol to its “Hate on Display” database and cited many white supremacists using it as “a sincere expression of White Supremacy”.
A snippet of the speech was then uploaded to social media:

He also did a photoshoot standing in front of Mount Rushmore and pretending his head was poking out of the mountain.
So, of course,for it... and it was glorious.
Fox's Carlson criticized for saying Democrats hate America .
NEW YORK (AP) — Television's most popular political host, Tucker Carlson, says leaders of the Democratic party should be disqualified from running the country because they “despise” it. That led the Biden campaign to accuse the Fox News Channel host on Tuesday of using “hate speech masquerading as journalism” and acting as an accomplice to President Donald Trump. Days after reports surfaced that some Republicans were discussing Carlson as a potential 2024 presidential contender, he delivered a monologue Monday night striking in its language and amplification of points made by Trump over the Fourth of July weekend.
