The video appeared to have taken at The Villages, a Florida retirement community, shows a man driving a golf-cart bearing pro-Trump signs shouting "white power". It also shows anti-Trump protestors shouting back "racist".
Trump tweeted the video around 7.30 am. But as per a report by NDTV, at 11 am the video was taken down from his Twitter account.
Commenting on Trump's action, The Republican Party's only black Senator, Tim Scott called the video "offensive".
"We can play politics with it or we can't. I'm not going to. I think it's indefensible. We should take it down. That's what I think," he said.
Trump's Health Secretary Alex Azar said he had not viewed the video. "But obviously neither the president, his administration nor I would do anything to be supportive of white supremacy or anything that would support discrimination of any kind," Azar said.
