We are at ground zero for a Trump presidency now that a tidal wave bomb shook the American electorate to its very core by Donald Trump being elected the 45th President of the United States.
There is an overwhelming sense of fear and anxiousness sprawled across the nation as millions sit and wait for his impending and now unstoppable disaster. However, some notable white supremacists are overtly pleased with Trump’s rise and that includes David Duke, the former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
Duke had been supporting Trump’s candidacy since its inception, a story which made the rounds where Trump refused to denounce Duke and his gaggle of white supremacist supporters. Now Duke is claiming partial credit for himself and the white supremacist movement for helping to elect Trump. Duke tweeted:
Duke went on to Tweet that the Southern portion of America as responsible for Trump’s rise. The Confederate flag waiving, gay hating, minority suppressing South brought Trump to the White House:
For racists like Duke, the election of a demagog such as Trump is a dream come true. The American public elected a man who has openly spoken negatively against every single ethnic group, with promises of placing them all in a position to fight for their lives. This pleased Duke, who Tweeted election night was the most exciting night of his life, and for good reason. Duke’s warped world view of a nation dominated by white Christian men now has an opportunity to come to fruition and he thanked God for this turn of events:
There is absolutely nothing to celebrate about Donald Trump inhabiting the Oval Office for at least the next four years. The American population must now brace itself for what will likely be the darkest times in the history of the republic, and they will do so while disgusting individuals like Duke cheer from the sidelines. The only silver lining about Duke is that he lost his own senatorial bid in Louisiana with only 3.4% of the vote.
