Former  Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke supports Donald Trump...

Buzzfeed reports that on Wednesday's installment of the David Duke Radio Program, Duke told his listeners (or his target audience of "European-Americans"

) that: 

“Voting for these people, voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage."

David Duke, who is a former grand wizard of the Knights of the  Ku Klux Klan, goes on to tell his listeners:

“I’m not saying I endorse everything about Trump, in fact I haven’t formally endorsed him. But I do support his candidacy, and I support voting for him as a strategic action.”

He urged his fans to "get off their duff" and volunteer for Trump.  He is very clear that Donald Trump is the only Republican candidate his listeners should be voting for.  He also continues to make comments that clearly convey his negative feelings towards homosexuals and the Jewish community.  He tops it all off by displaying a sexist attitude as well.

 

On the same day  Duke aired his views, it was reported that The American National Super PAC paid for robo-calls to go out all over the sate of Vermont, also in support of Donald Trump.  According to USA Today, the calls featured the voice of   William Daniel Johnson, chairman of the white nationalist American Freedom Party making such remarks as “Donald Trump is not a racist, but Donald Trump is not afraid. Don’t vote for a Cuban," (a reference to Republican presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz) "Vote for Donald Trump.”  The same report says that Johnson claimed in an interview  he sent the one-minute calls to every consumer landline in Vermont, regardless of political affiliation, at a cost of about $5,000.

It is true, Donald Trump does claim to be "the least racist person there is."  That being said, he sure is drawing them out of the woodwork.  From the notorious like David Duke down to everyday voters, there is an increasingly large group of Trump faithful that harbor views that seem more indicative of the 19th century than the 21st.
