Hillary Clinton might have gone too far when she said that a major terrorist group uses videos of Donald trump as a major recruiting tool, but another terrorist group is certainly glad he is running.
He wants an apology, but Hillary basically told him to go f**k himself. Good for her. The nerve of the orange one to demand someone apologizes to him for doing what he himself has been doing from the very start of his campaign: lying.
But back to that other terrorist group showing him love.
"Donald Trump's presidential campaign has become an outreach tool for the Ku Klux Klan, a leader of the Knights Party, a branch of the KKK, told the Washington Post.
They like the overall momentum of his rallies and his campaign," Rachel Pendergraft, a spokeswoman for the Knights Party, told the Washington Post. "They like that he’s not willing to back down. He says what he believes and he stands on that."
Pendergraft added that Trump's campaign has become a conversation starter for a movement that's seen its ranks diminish after the country elected its first black president, and Americans have moved to the left on social issues such as same-sex marriage.
The Washington Post report is just the latest to focus in on how Trump's campaign has mobilized supporters around long-simmering racial bitterness that has been ignored by most mainstream politicians.
Trump has also drawn praise from former KKK leader David Duke who recently called Trump the "best of the lot" and the founder of the white supremacist website Stormfront said earlier this year that Trump's campaign had given the website a traffic spike.
Trump's campaign did not immediately respond to an inquiry from Mashable. He does not belong to and has not endorsed any white supremacist groups.
But Trump's rhetoric about Muslims and immigrants has created some tense moments at his campaign rallies across the country.
At a November rally in Birmingham, Alabama, a Black Lives Matter protester was shoved and tackled, and says attendees shouted derogatory comments at him.
And during a recent Trump event in Las Vegas, an attendee yelled "sieg heil," a Nazi-era salute. "[Source]
Ok, so we know that some of trump's supporters are racist, but does that make trump himself a racist? No, not necessarily, but we are talking about trump here. He is the guy, after all, who went to great lengths to show the country that the first black president wasn't even an American.
