Is the KKK on the rise in America? With David Duke recently announcing his candidacy for the U.S. Senate and Trump's anti-immigration rhetoric, Ku Klux Klan leaders believe that the time has once again come around for their brand of white supremacist politics. But, are their dreams of resurgence fantasy or reality?
David Duke announced his support for Trump's campaign for the GOP nomination earlier this year and Trump famously took days to come out and denounce the support of the former KKK leader. Duke, however, doesn't seem daunted by Trump's disavowal of his support. He spoke to Reuters reporters.
"I don't really care what Donald Trump says about me. I respect what he's doing."
"I'm overjoyed to see Donald Trump and most Americans embrace most of the issues that I've championed for years."
