Former Grand Wizard Of The KKK David Duke Announces Run For Louisiana Senate
Duke, a strong supporter of Trump, said he was “overjoyed” to see the businessman’s campaign “embrace most of the issues that I’ve championed for years,” including the nationalist and protectionist notion of “America First.”
The former KKK grand master made the announcement one day after Trump officially claimed the Republican White House nomination.
“We must stop the massive immigration and ethnic cleansing of people whose forefathers created America,” Duke said in a video posted to his website.
Duke formerly represented suburban New Orleans in the statehouse between 1989 and 1993 and previously ran unsuccessfully for Congress and the Louisiana governorship. In December 2002 he pleaded guilty to felony fraud and tax evasion charges and was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison in April 2003. He was released after a year.
If elected, Duke would replace Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), who is not seeking re-election after losing his bid for the governorship last year. Duke is a registered Republican.
Make AmeriKKKa great again, huh?
