When it comes to social media, Donald Trump has been nearly synonymous with controversy.
And on Friday he was at it again, quoting an account with the handle @WhiteGenocideTM, whose name was listed as "Donald Trumpovitz" and location as "JewAmerica." Trump's retweet drew strong backlash on Twitter as well as from rival presidential campaigns.
The original tweet from Trump mocked former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, whom Trump frequently derides in stump speeches and during debates.
Hundreds on Twitter slammed Trump in response, including Tim Miller, a spokesman for Bush:
Others called Trump a racist who supports anti-Semitism.
A request for comment from Trump's campaign was not immediately returned.
It's not the first time Trump has been attacked for a tweet widely viewed as bigoted.
In July, his account tweeted an image that featured Nazi soldiers, which was quickly deleted, and in November he retweeted an image from a follower that included a swastika, which was also deleted. Moreover, in November he tweeted statistics about crime rates among African Americans that were debunked by the FBI.
Since he launched his campaign in June, Trump has been the persistent front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination. As he has made disparaging remarks about Mexicans and Muslims, among others, his backing has only grown, with analysts saying he is tapping into the support of less-educated white men who in part blame illegal immigration for decreased opportunities or economic woes.
The only time the campaign has offered any explanation for a questionable tweet came in regard to Iowans. Trump's account retweeted a post alluding to caucusgoers, who begin the nominating process Feb. 1, as mentally ill.
Who did Trump blame? An intern.
