When Donald Trump announced his was running for president, he quickly made headlines when he referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." While Trump came under-fire for his controversial comments, he also opened the door for a conservative base just waiting to hear what he was going to say next.

Trump's KKK support

Over the last 17 months, Trump has made a habit out of being controversial, often insulting various minority groups which has reflected negatively in the polls.

From Hispanics, to Muslims, to women, and others, Trump was able to ride that momentum to the Republican nomination this past July. Due to his rhetoric, Trump has been forced to explain much of the support he's attracted, including from white nationalist groups like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), and former Grand Dragon David Duke. As reported by The Washington Post on November 1, the Ku Klux Klan has officially offered their support to the former host of "The Apprentice."

The offical newspaper of the KKK, known as "The Crusader," has finally selected their choice for president and it shouldn't come as a surprise.

With the headline "Make American Great Again," the paper ran a front page ad in support of Trump. Writer for the paper, Pastor Thomas Robb, states "America was founded as a White Christian Republic. And as a White Christian Republic it became great." The paper won't endorse all of his policies, but says that Trump "kind of reflects what's happening throughout the world. There seems to be a surge of nationalism worldwide as nationals reclaim their borders."

The Washington Post spoke to Thomas in a phone interview, where the pastor praised Trump for his "nationalist views" and his plan of "shutting down the border to illegal aliens." The paper is one of the most controversial in the country, released four times a year and refers to itself as "The Political Voice of White Christian America!"

Moving forward

Trump's apparent racist support has also spread to Utah, where the GOP nominee is battling independent candidate Evan McMullin for the state's six electoral votes.
