Remember before Trump when elections didn’t include daily calls for people to be murdered, executed, or assassinated? CNN reports:
Eric Trump said on Thursday that former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke deserves “a bullet.”
“Ross, it’s disgusting and by the way, if I said exactly what you said, I’d get killed for it but I think I’ll say it anyway,” the Republican nominee’s son said after host Ross Kaminsky of 630 KHOW Denver radio suggested Duke deserves a bullet to the head. “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.'”
Reached for comment, Duke told CNN, “That’s a good one, I’m in the middle of project right now.” Duke requested CNN call him back in an hour, saying, “I have to think about it.” A comment request to Eric Trump and the Trump campaign was not immediately returned.
Duke, who is running for US Senate in Louisiana, has, like many other white nationalists, been a vocal supporter of Donald Trump during the 2016 election. Duke, a heavy underdog in that race, reaffirmed his support for Trump during a debate with his opponents on Wednesday night.
