The Ku Klux Klan has announced it will parade in celebration of Donald Trump's stunning presidential victory.

The Loyal White Knights of Pelham, North Carolina, one of the largest KKK groups in the nation, said the parade will take place on Dec. 3, but did not disclose the location, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The group praised the incoming president on its website, saying: "Trump= Trump's Race United My People."

The North Carolina KKK branch is "perhaps the most active Klan group in the United States today" and has about 200 members, according to the Anti-Defamation League, the Tribune reported.

And it is not the first time white supremacists have embraced Trump, The Dallas Morning News noted.

Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke endorsed him during the campaign. Trump at first refused to condemn the support, saying he did not know who Duke was. He later disavowed Duke's endorsement.

Duke, who lost his bid for a U.S. Senate seat on Tuesday, still celebrated Trump's election, calling it one of the most exciting nights of his life, the Dallas paper noted.
