White supremacist leader David Duke has congratulated Donald Trump on his inauguration. “We did it!” he wrote on Twitter. “Congratulation [sic] Donald J. Trump President of the United States of America!” he wrote.
Duke, a former Imperial Wizard for the Ku Klux Klan, was very vocal in supporting Trump throughout his campaign. In a series of tweets during the inauguration on Friday, Duke praised Trump for “declaring war” on the agenda of the “Jewish establishment” and said he would “return dignity to the white working class.” “Hail Prez Trump! America First! Save USA borders not foreign. Make nations (((Israel)))? pay own defense! NO to (((Neocon))) warmongers!” he wrote. Duke’s support for Trump prompted a minor scandal during the presidential campaign, when Trump appeared to hesitate before denouncing the former KKK leader as a “bad person.”
