David Duke: Donald Trump Is George Washington
May 13, 2016

The Daily Beast caught former KKK leader David Duke, comparing Donald Trump to our first president, George Washington.

“George Washington, the father of our country was just like Trump: a non-interventionist,” Duke posted on Twitter after sharing a picture of himself standing next to Trump with Washington super-imposed in the bottom right corner.

“What’s amazing is that Trump is the ONLY candidate defending the people whose forefathers created America! ABOUT TIME!” Duke exclaimed moments after Trump met with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan."

White supremacists are lining up to endorse Trump. It's pretty scary.

This is rich. Duke is unhappy that he's still being linked to the KKK. Well, all of his tweets and graphics are about the ethnic cleansing of whites and white power..
