In the bottom right hand corner, there is a photo of soldiers who are actually men dressed as the Waffen-SS, the notorious military wing of the Nazi SS.

The original photo can be found on photo site iStock. The image was taken at a World War II reenactment near Kent, England.


John Schindler, a former national security affairs professor at the US Naval War College, took to Twitter to complain about the tweet:

A Trump campaign spokesperson blamed the whoopsie on an intern: “Mr Trump has been in Charlottesville, Virginia all day at the opening of a development. 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 apologised and immediately deleted the tweet.”

The tweet and the Facebook post have since been deleted, but the internet lives on.
