President Donald Trump has started a bitter social media war with the announcement of #MAGACHALLENGE – an online competition where fans can win a chance to visit the White House.

Donald Trump shared a September 14 video posted by challenge creator – Bryson Gray – when announcing the rap competition on Friday.

‘I will be announcing the winners of the #MAGACHALLENGE and inviting them to the @WhiteHouse to meet with me and perform,’ Trump said in his tweet. ‘Good luck!’ 

The rap competition’s announcement coincided on the same day as the Black Voices for Trump coalition launch in Atlanta, where the president was speaking with conservative black voters. 

‘Donald Trump and the GOP kicked off their “Black Voices For Trump” day by promoting this idiotic #MAGAchallenge minstrel show thing,’ said Twitter user Ken Barnes. ‘I can’t believe they think this will generate black voter support … wow.’
