White supremacist tweet appears on GOP convention screens

The Republican National Convention on Thursday night showcased a tweet from a white supremacist account during Donald Trump's acceptance speech for the GOP presidential nomination.

The tweet appeared on four large screens in the Quicken Loans Arena during Trump's speech as part of a series of tweets that were highlighted and curated by the Republican National Convention, according to Time.

"'Tonight I'm with you, I will fight for you, and I will WIN for you!' - Donald J Trump. It's time to start WINNING again!#TrumpIsWithYou," the account, called @Western_Triumph, tweeted Thursday, quoting a line from Trump's speech.

The user behind the account describes themself as "#AltRight," "#ProWhite" and a "#RaceRealist" in the account's bio.

In a tweet Friday morning, @Western_Triump called desegregation a disaster.

"Everyone needs a place of their own. Stop the hate: Separate!

2. Is that any worse than Laura Ingram giving a fascist salute

To the image of Trump on the jumbo screen?

We know what the Republican Party has become and it's worth stomping out of existence.
