David Duke Endorses Trump: ‘He Understands The Real Sentiment Of America’

Former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke recently praised Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his tough stance on undocumented immigrants, which Duke called the "greatest immediate threat to the American people."

In a clip of Duke's radio show obtained by BuzzFeed, the former Klansman said that Trump was "the best" of the presidential candidates.

“I praise the fact that he’s come out on the immigration issue," Duke explained. "That he’s an entrepreneur and he has a good sense of what people want to hear what they want to buy."

“And I think he realizes that his path to popularity toward power in the Republican Party is talking about the immigration issue," the radio host continued. "And he has really said some incredibly great things recently. So whatever his motivation, I don’t give a damn. I really like the fact that he’s speaking out on this greatest immediate threat to the American people."

“I’ve said from the beginning I think his campaign is good in the sense that it’s bringing these issues to a discussion which we have to have in America. And he’s continuing to move the envelope further and I think he understands the real sentiment of America.”

Duke concluded by calling Trump's campaign a "great opportunity."

“So although we can’t trust him to do what he says, the other Republican candidates won’t even say what he says," he opined. "So he’s certainly the best of the lot. And he’s certainly somebody that we should get behind in terms, ya know, raising the image of this thing.”
