Trump, who is increasingly seen as the GOP’s likely nominee, has walked into a firestorm of criticism this week after receiving an endorsement from white supremacist David Duke.
As recently as Sunday morning, Trump had declined to condemn Duke’s racism. In an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday morning, Trump avoided a question about whether he'd condemn Duke's racism.
Later Sunday afternoon, Trump took to Twitter to formally denounce the former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard’s endorsement.
