Viewers pointed out an oddity at a rally as Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump acknowledged some ‘Blacks for Trump’ signs behind him.
“I love the signs behind me,” Trump said Tuesday at a campaign rally in Florida. “Blacks for Trump. I like those signs.”
But one of those signs, in direct view of cameras focused on Trump and held by a white woman, unleashed a torrent of comments on social media.

“Blacks for Trump” signs waving behind Trump as he speaks in Florida. Held up by white people. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Trump says “I love the signs behind me: Blacks for Trump.” Sign is clearly being held by a blond, white lady.

Some pointed out that this was not the first time this has been seen at a Trump rally.
We saw the white lady with the Blacks for Trump sign thing two weeks ago, too. https://t.co/Wk1PIgllEV
