ADL blasts Trump for tweeting a white nationalist talking point

US President Donald Trump has come under fire, including from the Anti-Defamation League, for apparently tweeting support for a white nationalist conspiracy theory that whites in South Africa are in danger of genocide.

In a statement, the ADL says it was “extremely disturbing that the President of the United States echoed a longstanding and false white supremacist claim that South Africa’s white farmers are targets of large-scale, racially-motivated killings by South Africa’s black majority.”

The ADL also says that white supremacists in the United States have made such claims for years.
