President Trump’s retweet of a video that included a demonstrator yelling “white power” during protests in Florida set off a “five-alarm fire” in the White House on Sunday, NBC News reported.

Two unidentified White House officials told the network that the video remained on the president’s Twitter feed for more than three hours because he could not be reached. Trump was reportedly at his Virginia golf club and put his phone down. 

Aides were also initially unable to reach deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino in an effort to delete the post, NBC News reported.  

In the now-deleted tweet, Trump lauded Florida demonstrators shown in the video, adding: “Thank you to the great people of The Villages.”

“The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe is shot. See you soon!!!” Trump posted.

    Foolish to even try to delete the tweet. Nothing on the internet really goes away if you delete it.
