Donald Trump Campaign Tweets Image Featuring Nazi Uniforms

Posted: Updated:

NBC News

NEW YORK — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign on Tuesday inadvertently tweeted a promotional photo featuring what appeared to be Nazi German soldiers superimposed on the U.S. flag alongside the real estate magnate's face.

The gaffe, which Trump's campaign blamed on an intern, comes after he provoked controversy with comments about Mexican rapists immigrating to the United States.

The tweeted picture also shows the White House and a $100 bill and the slogan, "We need real leadership. We need results. Let's put the U.S. back into business!"

"A young intern created and posted the image and did not see the very faded figures within the flag of the stock photo. The intern apologized and immediately deleted the tweet," Trump's campaign said.

The four soldiers pictured seemed to be actors wearing the uniforms of the notorious SS force, Twitter users said.

On Monday, an aide to Trump said that the FBI is investigating threatening tweets to him that were purported to have originated from Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, the Mexican drug lord who escaped from prison on Saturday.
