Rev. Al Sharpton said Monday that he believes President Donald Trump's retweet of video showing a supporter yelling "white power" was "intentional" and came with a message.

The civil rights activist made his case on MSNBC's "Morning Joe": "With all that is going on that the president has not addressed — including boycotting of Facebook for talking about postings of hate and stuff — the president would retweet this in the face of this. The reason I'm emphasizing the climate, from the Mississippi vote to Facebook to what's going on in the George Floyd reaction, is because his retweeting this is intentional."
