Eric Trump Says David Duke 'Deserves a Bullet'
Republican candidate Donald Trump's son Eric took a verbal shot at David Duke and his white nationalists supporters Thursday, saying the former Ku Klux Klan leader "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 guy does deserve a bullet,” Trump said of Duke.
“In fact, I commend my father. My father is 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.’”
Earlier this week, The Crusader, a prominent white nationalist newspaper linked to the KKK, endorsed Trump for president. The Republican nominee and his campaign have renounced the support of white nationalists.
Eric Trump said as president his father would put a "disproportionate amount of attention on the inner cities" to address minority issues, he and criticized President Obama for allegedly not doing more to address gun violence in Chicago.
