Duke said he doesn’t outright endorse Trump, because he is opposed to Trump’s policy on Israel and torture, but he plans to vote for him and encourages others to do so as well.
“It’s good for him to be judicious,” Duke said when asked about Trump’s examination of the white supremacists supporting him. “He can certainly disagree with David Duke.”
Duke said that Trump probably knows him based on media reports, “created by Jewish Zionists,” but might not know his political platform which was a precursor to that of Pat Buchanan and Trump himself, according to Duke.
“I think he knows who I am,” Duke said. “But he doesn’t know what I actually stand for today.”
Trump’s seeming unwillingness to reject the Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard on CNN has put those who have endorsed Trump too in an awkward position.
