Louisiana Republican Candidate & KKK Grand Wizard David Duke

"Why we voted for Donald Trump": David Duke explains the white supremacist Charlottesville protests"
David Duke, the former KKK grand wizard, is unambiguous about what Saturday’s alt-right and neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, means to him: It’s the fulfillment of President Trump’s vision for America.

“We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said from the rally, calling it a “turning point.” “We are going to 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.”

The Charlottesville rally is nominally about the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee rather than anything in the Trump administration. But Duke was an enthusiastic supporter of Trump as far back as the Republican primary in 2016, and Trump’s reluctance to disavow that support was, briefly, a big issue.

Duke has remained a faithful Trump supporter since then, insisting that the president-elect’s policies line up with the former KKK leader’s vision for America.

He was less happy with Trump’s vague tweet condemning the violence later Saturday afternoon:
"I would recommend you (President Trump) take a goid look in the mirror and remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists."--Davd Duke tweet

4. Trump Was A Democrat First, So Was Reagan

David Duke In December 1988, changed his political affiliation from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party.
He was elected to the Louisiana state House and he served in the House as a Republican from 1989 until 1992.
In 1990 Duke ran for the U.S. Senate as a Republican and on July 22, 2016, Duke announced that he was planning to run for the Republican nomination for the United States Senate seat in Louisiana being vacated by Republican David Vitter. He stated that he was running "to defend the rights of European Americans".
