This isn’t the first time someone made the connection between the president’s message and that of white supremacists. It’s a criticism that lead to questions about Trump’s potential relationship with Duke during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Trump denied knowing who Duke is. When told the former Klan leader endorsed him, Trump repudiated the endorsement during an interview only because it “would make you feel better.”
The president is not the first member of his family with potential ties to the KKK. His father attended a rally in New York and was arrested there. It is unknown if Trump the elder joined the white supremacist organization.
However he also takes Trump to task frequently for not living up to what Duke considers their shared agenda, complete with often racist or antisemitic memes.
Trump: You Campaigned on America First – Break that Promise & You Will Lose Us!
After one year Trump’s only major legislative accomplishment is a tax cut drafted by Make America Cuck Again Republicans. Meanwhile, neocons have hijacked his foreign policy –https://t.co/MKKsUT5aQJ pic.twitter.com/BUIVZ6v9Ep

Response to Duke’s claim he will sue Trump if he fails to keep his promises was immediate, but not all of it was negative.
This is a grate idea .Yes U should sue him & during that procedure getting your message loud & clear to Americans of how they have been conned by another puppet of Israel , how their young boys & girls R tricked to fight Israel ‘s wars . U will have at least half of US behind U.

What exactly did he promise you? To make America white again? The only one destroying our nation are people like you that think whites are superior to all other races.
