It’s no surprise that Republican candidate Donald Trump has the support of white nationalist and former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard, David Duke, who today encouraged his radio show listeners to volunteer for the mogul’s campaign.
“Call Donald Trump’s headquarters [and] volunteer,” he said on the David Duke Radio Program. At Trump campaign offices, he said, “you’re gonna meet people who are going to have the same kind of mindset that you have.”
According to the Huffington Post, white supremacist groups are working to mobilize their followers to get out the vote for Trump. In Minnesota and Vermont, a white supremacist super PAC called the American National Super PAC has begun circulating a robocall in support of Trump.
“The white race is dying out in America and Europe because we are afraid to be called ‘racist,’ says William Johnson, the leader of the white nationalist American Freedom Party. He goes on to lament the “gradual genocide against the white race,” and how few “schools anymore have beautiful white children as the majority.”
He ends by telling recipients, “Don’t vote for a Cuban. Vote for Donald Trump.”
Like Johnson, Duke also pointed out the racial background of Trump’s GOP rivals, Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas).
“Voting for these people, voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage,” Duke said Wednesday. And while he doesn’t agree with everything Trump says, he told listeners, “I do support his candidacy, and I support voting for him as a strategic action. I hope he does everything we hope he will do.”
