Former KKK leader Duke says Trump’s success proves he’s ‘winning’

Hosted by

Former KKK leader David Duke told the Los Angeles Times recently, “the fact that Donald Trump’s doing so well, it proves that I’m winning. I am winning.” That’s because his racist ideology is getting quite a bit of airtime lately. Duke’s a prominent supporter of Donald Trump, and he and many other leaders of racist groups have been energized by the Trump candidacy, saying they feel included in the political discourse, whereas in previous presidential elections, they have felt excluded from the mainstream.
