Virginia's KKK Leader Explains Why The Klan Supports Donald Trump

"A lot of what he believes in, we believe in."

"A lot of what he believes in, we believe in."

Seems about right.

The Klan insists it's not a hate group, but then so does The Donald.

"You're paying attention to the presidential elections this time? In your own personal opinion, who is best for the job?” I asked the Imperial Wizard.

“I think Donald Trump would be best for the job,” said the Imperial Wizard. "The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes in, we believe in. We want our country to be safe."

The Imperial Wizard said he supports Trump’s calls to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States.

"If Donald Trump dropped out tomorrow I would support Kasich before I would Ted Cruz because he is not an American citizen,” said the Imperial Wizard. “Even if I agree with some of the things that Ted Cruz says, I would not support him because he was born in Canada. He is not an American citizen."

Jewell [Marty Jewell, education chairman with the Richmond NAACP] felt there is a deeper issue.

“It’s very clear that they are attracted to Donald Trump because he's xenophobic," said Jewell. "It doesn't hold water. They hate other people who are not white, and until they take off the robe and until they atone for their sins, nobody is going to believe that they are kinder or gentler."
