According to Donald Trump’s press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, the president should not have to denounce the “white power” video he shared because deleting the tweet was enough.
McEnany was asked on Wednesday during a press briefing why Trump has yet to denounce the video.
“Why hasn’t the president denounced the ‘white power’ video he tweeted?” asked the reporter.
“The president took down that video,” said McEnany. “That deletion speaks strongly.”
“But why hasn’t he denounced it?”
“He deleted it,” repeated McEnany. “The deletion speaks for itself.”
