Ex-KKK Leader David Duke Says White Supremacists Will Fulfill Trumps Promises

Source: Huffington Post

As the official start of the “Unite the Right” rally kicked off in Charlottesville, Virginia, former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke said the gathering of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and far-right individuals pointed to a future fulfillment of President Donald Trump’s “promises.”

“This represents a turning point for the people of this country,” said Duke in video uploaded to Twitter by Indianapolis Star photojournalist Mykal McEldowney. “We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. 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. That’s what we gotta do.”

In a tweet, Trump condemned “hate” and “violence” in response to clashes at the rally on Saturday, though he did not call out white supremacists in particular.

Duke responded to Trump’s tweet by stating that Trump should “remember” that “White Americans’ were the ones to put him in office.

1. This should be the headline on all the papers and the lead story on the TV!

We have to get more people to realize how dangerous this crazed idiot is for our country.

4. This is what so many voted for.

Trump's message was very clear: Make America White Again.

5. What that is telling me is that Duke is predicting that his flock will continue the fight.

Even if their Fuhrer is dethroned.

“We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump."
