Donald Trump has been all behind one of his “black” Republicans, candidate for the U.S. Senate, John James. Unfortunately, James made a “terrible error.” During a quick press conference, after his debate with his Democratic opponent (MI) Senator Debbie Stabenow, he showed something inexcusable.

A swastika showed up in James’ first campaign ad, and the media called him out on it. The candidate pulled the YouTube version of it. In the news conference. he told CBS News “I need to fess up:”

‘I was taught by excellent leaders, the best of which being my mom and dad, to do the right thing even when it’s hard. We should have caught this error, and we didn’t and there is no excuse.’

Check out the ad on YouTube and pay particular attention to the bulletin board on the wall:

‘See John James’ TV ad featuring a Nazi swastika for yourself on his YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/2NN66Rq  – it’s :11 in here (or watch vid clip here). Disgusting #misen

‘Look on the bulletin board.’

‘I believe America is still worth fighting for. Despite America’s challenges, we shall overcome. ????

The ad showed a long school highway with a bulletin board on the wall. Papers cluttered it, but this one caught people’s attention — one paper showed a swastika symbol, which typically harkens back to Nazi Germany and the current U.S. white nationalist movement.

Tone deaf to the situation, Trump tweeted how great James was doing against the sitting senator, Stabenow:

‘WOW, John James is making headway in Michigan. We are bringing jobs back to the State, and the People of Michigan appreciate it. Debbie Stabenow has been no help, if anything, a major hindrance. John James is a star, I hope the voters see it. Polls are tightening!’
