Donald Trump’s latest campaign goof appears to be his use of an American flag featuring money, the White House and German Nazis.
“Make America Great Again,” the 2016 presidential hopeful’s official handle tweeted Tuesday with the banner which features his star-spangled face overlooking the marching World War II soldiers.
“We need real leadership. We need results. Let’s put the U.S. back into business,” his ad continues.
The outrageous image has since been deleted from his Twitter account, but not before captured by eagle-eyed critics who identified the soldiers as Waffen-SS infantry reenactors.
Those soldiers were the armed wing of the Nazi Party whose reign led to the mass murder of some six million Holocaust victims.
“These guys are dressed as late (1944-45) WW2 Waffen-SS infantry. Nothing to debate here. Way to go, Trump!” @20committee tweeted.
“Trump’s new campaign slogan: ‘Put the SS back in BUSINESS,'” joked @buffalopundit.
A campaign spokesperson for Trump, reached by The Daily Dot, blamed the gaffe on an intern.
“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 apologized and immediately deleted the tweet,” they stated.
The original stock image, linked back to Getty Images, is listed as “Marching soldiers” online and appears separate from the flag.
Its keywords include “Fascism,” “German Culture,” “conflict,” and “World War II.”
A request for comment from Trump’s campaign team was not immediately returned to the Daily News.
The blunder follows a string of foot-in-mouth mistakes for the billionaire businessman.
Last week he accused fellow GOP contender Jeb Bush on Twitter of having to like illegal immigrants because of his wife, who is Mexican. He later deleted that tweet.
Trump’s most contested comments, however, were made while announcing his presidential run. That’s when he branded Mexican immigrants as a threat to the U.S.
“They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” he said.
