This account was the originator of a fake, racist meme that claimed 81% of whites are killed by blacks. (The actual percentage is 14%.) Trump tweeted the graphic.

He later refused to apologize, saying he didn’t have time to vet this kind of information. “Am I gonna check every statistic?” Trump said.

The account has been deleted but its avatar was a neo-Nazi symbol and the owner expressed admiration for Hitler.

Trump retweeted this account when it posted a meme mocking Jeb Bush.

The account “tweets obsessively about white women allegedly raped by various minority groups.”

It also exposouses pro-Hilter sentiments.

These examples are not anomalies.

A study by the Twitter analytics firm Little Bird in January found that 62% of the accounts that Donald Trump retweeted had ties to white supremacists.
