President Trump’s latest remarks on the white supremacist march in Virginia may have drawn criticism from members of the public and even members of his own party, but it has drawn praise from ex KKK leader David Duke.
We must be clear. White supremacy is repulsive. This bigotry is counter to all this country stands for. There can be no moral ambiguity.

There's no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry. The President of the United States should say so

After President Trump reverted back to his original comments where he placed blame on “many sides” for the incidents which occurred in Charlottesville after a white supremacy rally left one person dead, David Duke praised the president for his “honesty and courage.”

Duke, who is an ardent supporter of Trump, took to Twitter writing, “Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa.”
Meanwhile, President’s Trump’s inability to unite the country over the events in Charlottesville has led to protests outside of Trump Tower where the president is currently staying, along with anti-Trump rallies across the U.S.
