President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning retweeted someone who appeared to call him or a man he might pardon a "fascist."

Trump had retweeted a story by "Fox & Friends" that he was considering a pardon for ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was found guilty last month of contempt in Arizona for defying a court order regarding racial profiling of Latinos.

Mike Holden replied to the "Fox & Friends" tweet, writing, "He's a fascist, so not unusual." It was not clear whether Holden was referring to Trump or Arpaio.

After the president retweeted him, Holden realized he would get plenty of attention.

Trump was again active on Twitter on Tuesday, also promoting an upcoming Fox News interview of Sen. Luther Strange (R., Ala.) and retweeting a supporter's graphic about not being able to stop the "#TrumpTrain."

Trump later deleted his retweets of the "#TrumpTrain" and the man calling him or Arpaio a "fascist."

UPDATED 8:59 A.M.: This article was updated to show Trump deleted two of his retweets.
