Appearing at a rally in North Carolina today, President Barack Obama was reported by the Guardian to have played the “KKK card” to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump when he made reference to former Klan Imperial Wizard David Duke’s reported support of Trump.

Obama shining light on the seeming existence of a Trump-KKK connection isn’t the first time the real estate developer’s name has been associated with the Klan in recent days.

Earlier today, the Inquisitr reported on a KKK-Trump endorsement by the Crusader, said to be the official newspaper of the Ku Klux Klan.

Georgia Senator David Purdue appeared on CNN earlier today, where he spoke with Jake Tapper about the Trump-KKK connection that appears to have continually made appearances over the course of his 2016 presidential campaign.

Tapper started the conversation by asking about Obama’s comments with regard to the KKK, Trump, the support of David Duke, the Crusader endorsement, and other comments by the president with regard to voter suppression on the part of Republicans.

The CNN host noted that the Donald Trump presidential campaign, but not Donald Trump personally, has disavowed the Crusader endorsement.

“Does it bother you at all the the Republican nominee continues to attract this kind of support; from vile, racist, bigots?” Jake Tapper asked Senator Purdue.
