What is it about Donald Trump’s candidacy that is so appealing to racist white nationalists? Why does the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan David Duke emphatically support Donald Trump?
The closing of U.S. borders, demonizing immigrants, saying we must protect “our” country, and attacking the media as disgusting–these are all shared views of Trump and Duke. Trump refused to disavow Duke’s support and even insinuated that he’d vote for Duke in his U.S. Senate race depending on who his Democratic opponent was.
Trump has mainstreamed the hate espoused by Duke more than Duke was ever able to.
