Twitter Users Call Trump ‘White Supremacist’ In #NaziBucketChallenge

It’s not the Ice Bucket Challenge, but instead the #NaziBucket Challenge – as Twitter users call out President Trump on the social media platform as a “white supremacist.”

The Nazi bucket challenge, which does not seem to involve actual buckets of ice, arose in response to the White House’s demand for the firing of ESPN host Jemele Hill. Hill, a black woman, castigated the president as a “white supremacist,” leading administration spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders to call for her firing.

The president has taken a number of charged steps on racial issues in recent weeks – including his defense of racists in Charlottesville as “very fine people” and his decision to rescind the DACA program for undocumented childhood immigrants.
