Ex-KKK Leader David Duke: White Nationalist Rally Is About ‘Fulfilling Promises Of Donald Trump’




David Duke, the former leader of the KKK, appeared at the “Unite the Right” white nationalist march in Virginia, praising it as “a turning point for the people of this country” and said of the marchers “we’re going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump.”

“This represents a turning point for the people of this country. We are determined to take our country back, we’re going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump, and that’s what we believed in, that’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back and that’s what we gotta do,” Duke said.

The former KKK Grand Wizard endorsed Trump during the 2016 presidential election.

Trump condemned the violence in Charlottesville hours after the white nationalist gathering began in a tweet.

Duke responded to Trump’s tweet on Saturday, tweeting: “I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists.”



“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides,” Trump said at a press conference on Saturday, failing to directly condemn white supremacists.

“It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time,” he continued.
