Breitbart News reported on Monday that former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, who now serves as the president of the Council of Conservative Citizens, had endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
The Washington Post reported Duke endorsed Trump on Tuesday.
The KKK is one of the most notorious racist groups in the U.S. It’s also an extreme white nationalist group, which advocates white supremacy.
In an interview with MSNBC, Duke said Trump was “one of the greatest presidents” of all time and that he had no problem with his endorsement.
He also noted that his son had been accused of racist comments.
According to the New York Daily News, Duke “has become one of America’s most prominent and outspoken white nationalists.”
In an article published on his website, Duke wrote that the GOP establishment was attempting to “turn white people into Nazis” and that it was “an absolute disgrace” to white people and “the white race.”
He wrote that Trump is “the most dangerous person in the entire world.”
Duke said he is not endorsing any candidate.
