A white supremacy group dubbed the "Keystone State Skinheads" has come out in "full force" to support Donald Trump in Tuesday's Pennsylvania presidential primary, The Daily Beast reports.

"The state's history of anti-black agitation and resentment of anyone who wasn't white has produced pockets of some of the country's most organized white supremacists. And they're eager to stump for Trump — and for everything he stands for," The Beast's Betsy Woodruff writes.

That was evident last week when a Trump rally in Harrisburg attracted a mixed large crowd which included "almost a dozen white men decked out in the regalia of a white supremacist group," she says.

"[They] hung out toward the back of the Trump-loving crowd, cheering heartily at the mogul's calls for stricter immigration enforcement and eyeing police as they dispatched protesters."

While Trump does not back white supremacy, Woodruff writes, he's used "all the right buzzwords to attract white supremacists of every stripe. And his skinhead support is especially visible in Pennsylvania … as the state has a long, dark history of white supremacist organizing and intimidation."
