US Elections 2016 News updates have revealed the Ku Klux Klan’s endorsement of Donald Trump. The article supporting Trump in the Crusader newspaper of the organization is a case in point. There are several instances of Trump being backed by the organization publicly as well.
The Washington Post reports that the Crusader is one of the most highlighted newspapers of the Ku Klux Klan. As per US Elections 2016 news reports, the paper bore a current front page article called Make America Great Again. This article was devoted towards supporting Donald Trump and subtly endorsing his message.
The most obvious hint as per US Elections 2016 news updates is that Trump has used this caption time and again. Pastor Thomas Robb of the Crusader has stated how “you can see it on the shirts, buttons, posters…such as the one worn here by Trump”.
He also added that “can it happen? Can America really be great again?” The article talks of how Trump wishes to make America great again but the reasons for its past greatness should also be considered.
It also talks of how “America was founded as a White Christian Republic”. This was the reason for its greatness, because of “who our forefathers were”. The Trump campaign has officially denounced this article as repulsive and non representative of the candidate’s own views.
What Added Fuel To The Fire?
Robb also talked of how “we do like his nationalist views and his words about shutting down the border to illegal aliens”. He also talked of how Trump “reflects what’s happening throughout the world”.
Ex-Ku Klux Klan honcho David Duke has also embraced Trump earlier. Trump has also declined to disavow the KKK and Duke when spurred by Jake Tapper from CNN. Trump’s campaign has also enabled the Ku Klux Klan to recruit members and educate them on prevailing issues.
The Huffington Post has reported that the Ku Klux Klan is stepping up efforts to get Trump successfully into the Presidential chair. Residents in Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama and Kansas are finding fliers from KKK. These exhort citizens to join the organization and also come out to vote for taking “our country back”.
