David Duke wasn’t the only well-known white supremacist who triumphantly live-tweeted last night’s speech by Donald Trump. Via the Huffington Post:
Prominent members of the white supremacist movement applauded Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s immigration speech Wednesday.
Jared Taylor, editor of the white nationalist publication American Renaissance, said it was a “hell of a speech. Almost perfect.”
“Trump is back,” wrote Richard Spencer, president of the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist think tank.
Trump delivered his fiery, fear-mongering speech in Phoenix just hours after meeting with Mexican President Enrico Peña Nieto in Mexico City for what Trump called a “substantive, direct and constructive exchange of ideas.” The optimism Trump projected in Mexico, however, was nowhere to be found in Arizona.
Instead, Trump laid out a grim vision of the U.S., describing it as a country under siege from violent “criminal aliens.” Undocumented immigrants, he said, were responsible for the deaths of “countless Americans.”
#TrumpAZ Donald Trump has tied our foolish immigration policies to every problem we have. This is a epochal, historic, unprecedented.
