Pro-Trumpers Met With Protests In Florida Retirement Community

Retirement Community Residents Drag MAGA Supporters


The Villages in Florida is a predominantly Republican community

Video shared on Twitter shows scenes from the Villages, a large and mostly all-white retirement community in Florida, where a golf cart parade full of Trump supporters were met with some fiery protestors who wanted them to know Trump’s agenda and everything he stands for was very much not welcome there.

In the video, people with Trump shirts, signs, and decorated golf carts can be seen driving past protesters — both sides hurling insults at each other. In one exchange, a white man holding a sign that reads “Make America Sane Again” yells, “Where’s your white hood?” In response, a white man driving a golf cart with signs reading “Trump 2020” and “America First” yells back “white power!”

Trump retweeted the video on Twitter Sunday, writing, “Thank you to the great people of The Villages. The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe [Biden] is shot. See you soon!!!” His retweet came before 8 a.m. ET this morning and was deleted around 11 a.m. Yes, in the middle of country-wide protests about systemic racism, police brutality against Black people and calls for confederate statues and flags to be removed, the president retweeted a video that said “white power.”

In a more recent poll, from the New York Times and Siena College, 61 percent of voters said they disapproved of Trump’s handling of race, while just 33 percent said they approved.

People were very much here for everything the protestors stand for:
