KKK David Duke calls out Trump on Twitter


David Duke, the former Ku Klux Klan leader, is saying the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va. represents fulfilling the promises of President Donald J. Trump.

“This represents a turning point for the people of this country. We are determined to take our country back, we’re going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump, and that’s what we believed in, that’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back and that’s what we gotta do,” Duke said.

David Duke endorsed Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election.

Trump tweeted on Saturday, condemning the violence in Charlottesville.  The event resulted in multiple injuries and at least one person dead.  The death was caused by a driver who rammed his car into pedestrians. There were also endless fights between protestors.

Duke responded to Trump’s tweet on Saturday, appearing to put pressure on Trump.

“I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists,” Duke tweeted.

During a press conference that was meant to highlight accomplishments made by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Trump said, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.”

Dennis Michael Lynch, who has supported Donald Trump long before the billionaire businessman announced his presidency, said this about Duke’s comments: “Donald Trump was elected because people wanted jobs created, the border secured, taxes lowered, Obamacare repealed, and the elite politicians to have less power over the people.  His presidency, his candidacy, and his presence on this planet has nothing to do with racism, hate, bigotry or violence.  Anyone who says differently is clueless.”

In response to the vehicle attack upon a crowd of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia Saturday, President Trump sent out another Twitter message Saturday evening, confirming his support to the city and the victims.

“We will continue to follow developments in Charlottesville, and will provide whatever assistance is needed. We are ready, willing and able,” Trump tweeted.

Having earlier tweeted out a video clip from his statements on the attack, in this tweet, President Trump included another video with more of his remarks. “We have so many incredible things happening in our country, so when I watch Charlottesville, to me, it’s very, very sad,” Trump said at a press conference Saturday in New Jersey.

He commended the law enforcement, state and local police in Virginia and the National Guard for their service in Charlottesville. “We are here to provide whatever other assistance is needed, we are ready, willing and able,” Trump said.

“Above all else, we must remember this truth, no matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all AMERICANS FIRST. We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we’re proud of our country, we’re proud of who we are, so we want to get this situation straightened out in Charlottesville. We want to study it, and we want to see what we’re doing wrong as a country where things like this can happen,” President Trump said.

He continued, “My administration is restoring the sacred bonds of loyalty between this nation and its citizens, but our citizens must also restore the bonds of trust and loyalty between one another. We must love each other, respect each other and cherish our history and our future together. Ideally, we have to love each other.”
