The fascinating thing is that instead of a blaming the tweet on a subordinate—something they haven't been shy about doing in the past—the campaign has chosen to stay silent about it. They have apparently made the political calculation that it would be worse for Trump to acknowledge not sending the racist tweet than to endure a few days of stories about how racist he is.

He's allowed to make mistakes he is not a professional liar.
Time to make America Great Again.
We need a leader.
And, if you're one of the millions scamming America waiting for a check every month.
Get a job.
ADD...I wasn't suggesting OP was ripping off America. My comments were in general.

If making a mistake disqualified every candidate from being President we would have no President. The last two Presidents especially.

I don't support racism of any kind, but not being American I don't know, so is there any truth in those statistics?
Because if so, while they are racially profiling, which is political suicide, they do represent some disturbing facts.
"I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down," the Republican presidential candidate said at a Nov. 21 rally in Birmingham, Ala. "And I watched in Jersey City, N.J., where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering."
"They send them to the Republicans, not to the Democrats, you know, because they know the problems," Trump said on Nov. 17, 2015. "In California, you have a Democrat as a governor (Jerry Brown). In Florida, you have Rick Scott (a Republican). So you know they send them to the Republicans because you know why would we want to bother the Democrats? It's just insane. Taking these people is absolutely insanity."
Quick: "You have talked a little bit about Marco Rubio. I think you called him (Facebook founder) Mark Zuckerberg’s personal senator, because he was in favor of the H-1B visa."
Trump: "I never said that. I never said that."
"The last quarter, it was just announced, our gross domestic product -- a sign of strength, right? But not for us. It was below zero. Who ever heard of this? It's never below zero."

I'm sure I'll catch a warning and a post remove for this, but it's because only the Blacks feel the need to "protest" (aka looting, lawlessness, recklessness, anarchy, etc). It's not protesting, it's not even mob justice, because the ones affected were not the perpetrators.
You NEVER see white people protest like black people do. You all know exactly what I mean.
And by the way, I don't see anything at all related to Neo-Nazism here. Racism maybe, but Neo-Nazism is an actual political ideology rather than some offhand comment that offends a few people.
