Trump helps bigots go viral : Trumptweeted an Infowarsvideo , as well as retweeted a message from a conspiracy account that said, "The 'elite' proclaim America must submit to Islam or else!!!"

"It's tempting to ignore Trump's tweeting,"but, as the above example shows, "when Trump amplifies far-right voices, people on the fringes notice. On 8chan, the online hangout of both the man charged with slaughtering Muslims in New Zealand recently and the man charged in the Poway synagogue shooting, a poster wrote, "IF POTUS is retweeting something like this, the gloves are really off. It's ON."Trump went on a Twitter tear on Friday night. He retweeted a squib from Southern jeering at establishment conservatives who aren't concerned by the bans. Trump tweeted that he was surprised to see "Conservative thinkers" like Watson de-platformed, and retweeted Watson's call for solidarity: "The support for me has been incredible. This could actually lead to some genuine change. Keep up the pressure. Don't let it rest."

OMG: A president who spews hate and supports vicious liars represents us in the world, but what he does here -- is incite his 'base'. Since he became president hate crimes have intensified.
