Former Republican presidential candidate Pat Buchanan has praised the rise of current candidate Donald Trump. In a World Net Daily column, Buchanan says he hopes Trump can succeed where he failed.
“I hope he will take steps to reduce America’s non-white population,” said Buchanan.
Buchanan has been promoting white nationalism for several decades. While campaigning for president in 1992, he claimed 1 million Englishmen would have an easier time assimilating into America than 1 million Zulus. Buchanan has also penned several columns blaming Latino immigration for bringing down the nation’s test scores.
According to Right Wing Watch, Buchanan recently commended Trump for embracing his nativist ideas.
