Hillary Clinton pushing the fake news rhetoric that President Trump is racist and accepted the support of David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan.
In an interview on PBS’s “NewsHour,” Hillary Clinton said that President Donald Trump had given a lot of “encouragement and rhetorical support” to the Ku Klux Klan – which is nothing more than the Left’s continued rhetoric to discredit the president.
When asked if President Trump is a racist, Clinton said, “Here’s what I believe. I believe he has given a lot of encouragement and rhetorical support to the Ku Klux Klan, he accepted the support of David Duke. I believe that he has not condemned the neo-Nazis and the self-proclaimed white supremacists in Charlottesville and other settings.”
Hillary is such a liar, and PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff knows that Hillary is lying. President Trump did not accept David Duke’s support and he repeatedly refuted any association.
She continued “I can’t tell you what’s in his heart, Judy. I don’t know. It could be total rank cynical opportunism. He has a hardcore base that believes these things and he is going to keep feeding it.”
President Donald Trump was never accused of being a racist until he began running for office, and the Left and mainstream media have been using it as a tool to discredit him.
The truth is, our President has always taken a strong stand against racism and hate groups, and has not only been saying it, his actions portray it.
Watch Donald Trump disavow David Duke, the KKK and all racists, over and over again, dating back 17 years, while the liberal media keeps denying he did, and insists he must be a racist himself.
1986: TRUMP, ROSA PARKS, MUHAMMAD ALI RECEIVE ‘ELLIS ISLAND’ AWARD:
As the New York Times reported on October 16, 1986:
Eighty Americans from 42 ethnic groups were named yesterday as recipients of the Ellis Island Medal of Honor by the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation.
The medals will be presented to the recipients, all either naturalized or native Americans, at a ceremony Oct. 27 on Ellis Island. That is the day before the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty, the final event of the 1986 Liberty Centennial observances.
The National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations presents the awards based on “integrity, passion, gravitas, humanitarian and ethnic heritage.”
Now, here is Hillary Clinton praising her “mentor” Robert Byrd, a Democrat, who was a recruiter for the Klan while in his 20s and 30s, rising to the title of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of his local chapter.
Byrd claimed that being part of the Klan was a mistake from his youth – he was in his 30’s, he never publicly denounced them, and it was only when he ran for public office that he said he regretted it.
