David Duke, arguably the nation’s most prominent white supremacist, has praised the current direction of the GOP. In an interview with the Conservative Chronicle, Duke said he felt perfectly at home in today’s Republican Party.
“You have to admire what Donald Trump has done,” said Duke. “He’s promising to deport the Mexicans and we’re killing and locking up the blacks, what’s not to like? Now if they could only go after the Jews …”
Duke also praised the GOP in a BuzzFeed interview.
“The truth is the Republican Party is a big tent. I served in the Republican caucus. I was in the Republican caucus in the (Louisiana) legislature. I had a perfect Republican voting record,” said Duke.
In related news, Mike Pence, Donald Trump’s running mate, recently refused to call Duke “deplorable.”
