Donald Trump has made repeated overtures to white supremacists and previously earned the endorsement of David Duke and many other neo-Nazis and those of a similar bent. Now he’s earned the endorsement of the largest KKK group in the country, saying it shares an agenda with Trump in many ways.
The Crusader, one of the white supremacist group’s most prominent publications, published a lengthy endorsement and defense of Trump’s message on the front page of its current issue under the headline: “Make America Great Again.”…
In The Crusader, Pastor Thomas Robb wrote, “While Trump wants to make America great again, we have to ask ourselves, ‘What made America great in the first place?’
“America was great not because of what our forefathers did -but because of who our forefathers were. America was founded as a White Christian Republic. And as a White Christian Republic it became great,” Robb wrote.
The Trump campaign rejected the endorsement, but of course they did. In the past, white supremacists have said they understand why he can’t publicly voice his support for them, but they know he really is on their side.
