And There You Have It

Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke suggested on Saturday that President Donald Trump is inspiring the white nationalist “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Asked by a reporter what the alt-right rally means to him, Duke said that it represents a “turning point for the people in this country.”

“We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said. “We’re gonna fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. 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.”

From the horse's ass to the horse's mouth.
Duke — a former member of the Louisiana House of Representatives who is attending the rally — was a vocal supporter of Trump’s presidential campaign and congratulated him upon his inauguration in January, tweeting, “We did it!”

Trump came under fire for initially declining to denounce Duke, whom he claimed to “know nothing about.”

“I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists,” Trump told CNN during the campaign. “So I don’t know. I don’t know — did he endorse me, or what’s going on? Because I know nothing about David Duke; I know nothing about white supremacists.”
Wanna buy a bridge?...but hey, do what you will anyway.
