Over the weekend a lot of attention was directed at Donald Trump over his never having heard of David Duke or the Ku Klux Klan. Well this should address any lingering questions that still exist about Trump's ability to appeal across racial lines:
“[Trump] is the only member who has stood in front of [the] Jewish community and said, ‘I don’t want your money,’” Farrakhan said on Monday during the Nation's annual Saviours’ Day sermon, according to the Anti-Defamation League.
“Anytime a man can say to those who control the politics of America, ‘I don’t want your money,’ that means you can’t control me. And they cannot afford to give up control of the presidents of the United States.”
Farrakhan stopped short of endorsing the outspoken billionaire’s presidential campaign, however.
“Not that I’m for Mr. Trump, but I like what I’m looking at,” he told listeners at the Nation's Mosque Maryam in Chicago.
Not only does he "like what he's looking at" (I'm guessing that is a white devil, but who knows, this is Calypso Louie) but he seems to hold other things in common with Trump. Though it Trump's defense he thinks there are "questions" about 9/11 and Farrakhan thinks he has the answers:
“They needed another Pearl Harbor,” he said. "They needed some event that was cataclysmic, that would make the American people rise up, ready for war. "They plotted a false flag operation and when a government is so rotten that they will kill innocent people to accomplish a political objective, you are not dealing with a human.
“Now, they got into the [second] Bush administration and on 9/11 the Twin Towers went down. [Former President] George [W.] Bush and those devils, those Satans around him. They plotted 9/11. Ain’t no Muslim took control of that plane.”
I can hardly wait to see if this support by Farrakhan makes its way into a Trump speech or if one of his staff uses it to prove the KKK story is bogus.
