(JTA) — Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke praised Donald Trump’s Indiana primary victory, which makes him the presumptive GOP candidate, and said it has wrested control of the country from “Jewish extremists.”
Duke made the statements Wednesday on his radio program, a day after the primary win and the same day Trump’s two Republican rivals, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, quit the race. The remarks were first reported by the watchdog group Right Wing Watch.
“(T)hese Jewish supremacists who control our country are the real problem, and the reason why America is not great,” Duke said during the six-minute rant. “Jewish chutzpah knows no bounds.”
