President Donald Trump set off a "five alarm fire" in the White House Sunday morning after he retweeted a video of one of his supporters saying "white power," according to two White House officials.
The video remained on the president’s Twitter page, where he has 82 million followers, for more than three hours because White House officials couldn’t reach him to ask him to delete it, the two officials said. The president was at his golf club in Virginia and had put his phone down, the officials said.
Aides also tried unsuccessfully to reach Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino to ask him to delete the retweet, officials said.
