Trump uses ‘S.S.’ as shorthand for ‘Secret Service’ in tweet

Donald Trump is facing criticism that refers to the United States Secret Service as the SS – which critics point out is the acronym for the Nazi paramilitary group responsible for the atrocities and mass killings during World War II.

He came as a reference in a tweet from Triunfo on Thursday morning thanking groups who were stationed outside the White House during protests that have taken place over the past two weeks, including the law enforcement, including some who grew violent. In the tweet, Trump highlighted the National Guard who were stationed directly outside the White House and went on to talk about other law enforcement agencies that helped, including what is known as the SS.

As many pointed out, the abbreviation for the Secret Services is USSS, and that the SS phrase historically refers to the Schutzstaffel, which served as a brutal paramilitary group within the Nazi occupation in Germany.

While there was no indication that the Triumph of using the wrong acronym was intentional – as his tweet was exactly 280 characters, meaning he would have had no space to write the full name of the Secret Service – many took it as an offense to its use. Bradley Moss, from a lawyer and national security expert, took the Win from the task for his use of the SS

“Oh, one more point. It is USSS. No SS. The SS Nazis, ”he wrote on twitter. “Please don’t use that acronym ever again when describing the Secret Service.”

Trump had already been facing criticism of the crackdown that took place outside the White House prior to his photo in a nearby church. Days after a small fire broke out in St. John of the Episcopal Church during a protest that turned violent, a large group of law enforcement officers from a number of local and federal agencies forcefully pushed peaceful protesters shortly before. Trump walked through the area where they had been protesting to pose in front of the church, holding a Bible.
