WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump appeared to have deleted a social media post showing one of his supporters shouting “white power,” a phrase often used by white supremacists, after the retweet drew sharp rebuke from at least one fellow Republican.

The video, posted earlier on Sunday, no longer appeared in the president’s feed late Sunday morning.
