“If Donald Trump becomes president, he will take America into the abyss of hell,” Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan said on his Facebook page Thursday.

Farrakhan added that Trump is “exacerbating the race situation in America.”
“Mr. Trump is tearing away the skin of the onion of white civility and the more he pulls the skin of that onion back, he’s beginning to show something in the character of the whites that follow him, that they don’t care what he says,” Farrakhan said.
“He could say one thing this minute, another thing the next minute, and you can see that the man has a little problem.”
