Former KKK leader says they were fulfilling a promise by Trump at the Charlottesvile rally

During the “Unite the Right” demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia, which escalated into violent clashes leading to a state of emergency, a former Ku Klux Klan leader by the name of David Dike said the rally symbolized the fulfilling of another of President Trump’s promises, the Hill reported.

“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,” explained Duke.

Duke endorsed Donald Trump during last year’s presidential election.

Mr. Trump has disclaimed Duke after avoiding questions relating to the former KKK leader’s endorsement. The President also decried the Charlottesville violence within hours after the white nationalists initiated the assembly in a Twitter post.

Duke displeasedly reminded Trump that it was ‘white Americans,’ not the Left who won him the Oval Office.

“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 wrote.

Later on Saturday, President Trump again censured the hostile protests at a press briefing.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides,” Trump said at the press conference.

“It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time,” he added.
