Barely News: KKK's Official Newspaper Endorses Trump

Is there anything that could come out about Trump that would surprise anyone anymore?

Published November 1, 2016

Exactly one week before Election Day, Donald Trump has won the endorsement of an official newspaper of the Ku Klux Klan.

The Crusader, one of the most prominent papers of the KKK, devoted much of its most recent issue's front page to defending, and embracing Trumps hateful message.

The endorsement reads, "America was great not because of what our forefathers did - but because of who our forefathers were." Continuing, "America was founded as a White Christian Republic. And as a White Christian Republic it became great."

While the Trump campaign responded by disavowing the endorsement, saying, "Mr. Trump and the campaign denounces hate in any form," the last year, and Trump's often xenophobic words while on the campaign trail have made it quite clear why Trump is such an attractive candidate for hate groups across the country.

This is not the first time Trump has been connected to the KKK, as former Imperial Wizard David Duke tweeted his support for the candidate during the Republican National Convention.

At this point it is clear that there is no way the people of America can allow Trump to become the leader of the free world, but if you needed one more reason this is surely it.
