Earlier on Saturday, Duke called the rally a “turning point” saying that protesters would fulfill the promises of Trump’s candidacy.  “This represents a turning point for the people of this country. We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said. “We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That’s what believed in. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump.”

Trump came under fire during the election for his reluctance to disavow Duke, which he eventually did. Still, Duke supported Trump and publicly celebrated his win in November.

 

Former KKK leader David Duke struck out at President Donald Trump for condemning the violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. In a series of tweets Duke questioned why his fellow racist,  president, whom he usually supports, is attacking white Americans who put him “in the presidency.”

 

After violence erupted at the “Unite the Right” rally, Trump tweeted, “We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”
