Donald Trump Deletes Campaign Promo Reportedly Containing Nazi Image
A photo of Waffen-SS troops reportedly was pictured just above the words: "We need real leadership. We need results."
Donald Trump released a new campaign promo on Tuesday morning but quickly deleted the image from his Twitter account after users pointed out that a photo of Waffen-SS troops was buried near the bottom of the graphic.
The Photoshopped image — tweeted with a caption of his campaign slogan, "#MakeAmericaGreatAgain" — featured photos of Trump himself, $100 bills, the White House and Nazi soldiers with an overlay of the American flag, reported The Daily Beast.
The words: "We need real leadership. We need results. Let's put the U.S. back into business!" were printed across the bottom of the image.
Several Twitter users noted that Trump had mistaken Waffen-SS troops for U.S. soldiers, as the soldiers in the photo apparently have Waffen-SS insignia on the sleeves of their uniforms. See the tweets below.
Whole lot of GOP prayers got answered today....just 1 pic of Waffen-SS in your campaign ad really touches people. pic.twitter.com/dvz5Rj18pb— John Schindler (@20committee) July 14, 2015
