KKK to hold parade in North Carolina celebrating Trump victory

A Ku Klux Klan group will hold a rally in North Carolina celebrating Donald Trump’s election to the White House.

{mosads}The group will hold the parade on Dec. 3 but has not yet specified a time or location. 

The Loyal White Knights of the KKK refers to the parade as a “Victory Klavalkade Klan Parade” and says on its website that “Trump’s race united my people.” 

A photo of Trump is also displayed prominently on the website’s home page. 

The KKK effectively endorsed Trump shortly before the election, although his campaign has tried to distance itself from its support. 

Trump has especially been praised by former KKK leader David Duke. Trump’s son Eric Trump recently disavowed his support, saying “It’s disgusting.”

“The guy does deserve a bullet. I mean, these aren’t good people. These are horrible people. In fact, I commend my father. My father’s the first Republican who’s gone out and said ‘Listen, what’s happened to the African-American community is horrible and I’m going to take care of it.'”
