Donald Trump’s campaign disavowed former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke's robocalls urging Louisiana voters to cast their ballots for him and the GOP nominee.

"Unless massive immigration is stopped now, we’ll be out numbered and outvoted in our own nation. It’s happening," Duke warns, according to BuzzFeed News, which first reported the robocalls and which the white nationalist confirmed.

"We’re losing our gun rights, our free speech. We’re taxed to death. We’re losing our jobs and businesses to unfair trade. We’re losing our country. Look at the Super Bowl salute to the Black Panther cop killers. It’s time to stand up and vote for Donald Trump for president and vote for me, David Duke for the U.S. Senate.”

Team Trump denounced the calls, Politico reports.

"Mr. Trump has continued to denounce David Duke and any group or individual associated with a message of hate," the nominee said in a statement.

"There is no place for this in the Republican Party or our country. We have no knowledge of these calls or any related activities, but strongly condemn and disavow."

In an interview Monday on CNN, Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson called the robocall "absolutely disturbing," Politico reports.

The former KKK grand wizard has dogged the Trump campaign since last spring, when the real estate mogul failed initially to repudiate Duke's endorsement. 


Politico notes Trump later said he didn't need or want the endorsement.
