President Donald Trump tweeted -- but then deleted -- a post showing video of Mike Bloomberg defending New York City's "stop-and-frisk" police policy, but it stayed up long enough to generate some reaction.
The president called the former mayor and current Democratic presidential candidate a "total racist," and other social media users noted the irony.
