Photo tweeted by Donald Trump’s campaign

NEW YORK — Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign tweeted out a photo that mistakenly showed soldiers wearing Nazi uniforms.

The new campaign poster featured Trump’s face, $100 bills, the White House and soldiers. At the bottom were the words: “We need real leadership. We need results. Let’s put the U.S. back into business!”

People noticed that the soldiers in the picture were wearing Waffen-SS uniforms.
It turns out the picture was photo-shopped from a stock photo of what appears to be war re-enactors, not actual Nazi troops.

The Trump campaign quickly deleted the image from the Twitter account Tuesday and blamed the mistake on a “young intern”.

    Hard to can’t believe that this country has fallen so far that we deserve Trump. Germany just sentenced one of the last Nazis and the Donald blames their reappearance on a “young intern”. Someone give him a not so gentle nudge that when he wants to be president, THE BUCK STOPS WITH HIM!
