Former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke applauded Donald Trump's Indiana primary victory Wednesday, saying the real estate mogul supports the interests of white Americans.
Duke, who pledged his support of Trump
in February, made the remarks on his Internet radio program.
"Even though Trump is not explicitly talking about European-Americans, he is implicitly talking about the interests of European-Americans," Duke said.
Duke, who also served in the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1989-1992, slammed the so-called "Never Trump" movement — a movement some have vowed to press on despite Trump not being the Republican Party's presumptive presidential nominee.
"I think these Jewish extremists have made a terribly crazy miscalculation because all they're gonna be doing by doing a Never Trump movement is exposing their alien, their anti-American, anti-American-majority position to all the Republicans and they're going to push people more into awareness that the neocons are the problem, that these Jewish supremacists who control our country are the real problem and the reason why America is not great," Duke said.
"And they will want to make sure America and the American middle class is not great again."
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said Tuesday night the Republican Party needs to unite
and focus on beating presumed Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton in the general election now that Trump is the presumptive nominee.
