We're waiting.

During the American Priority Conference at President Donald Trump's resort in Miami, a group of Trump supporters was shown a violent video depicting Trump shooting, stabbing, and otherwise murdering people and publications perceived to be his political enemies.

According to the officials at the conference, the video was in no way authorized or sanctioned by them, but was instead played by attendees in a side room.


Watch the graphic video below.

The video sparked massive outcry after going viral on Twitter the weekend after the conference. Soon, the White House Correspondents' Association rebuked it in an official statement calling on Trump to condemn its contents:

"All Americans should condemn this depiction of violence directed toward journalists and the President's political opponents," the statement read. "We have previously told the President his rhetoric could incite violence."

The statement continued:

"Now we call on him and everybody associated with this conference to denounce this video and affirm that violence has no place in our society."

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham addressed the video on Twitter, assuring that Trump hadn't seen it but would likely condemn it.

At the same time as Grisham's statement, the President was endorsing former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Dancing with the Stars.

Soon, some of those featured in the video began speaking out.

As did other journalists.

The makers of the video and tangentially Trump himself have been accused by the videos' viewers of possibly inciting violence. Trump frequently refers to the press as the "enemy of the people." Cesar Sayoc, a Trump supporter inspired by the President's rhetoric, sent multiple bombs to the President's perceived enemies last year.
