Guess Which Trump Family Member Caught At KKK Rally?

President Donald Trump claims to have nothing to do with the Ku Klux Klan, the Nazi Party or any other white nationalist or white supremacy groups, although a quick review of footage from his campaign rallies from 2016 may suggest otherwise.

President Trump also has a historical connection to the Ku Klux Klan.

As a point of fact, his father Fred C. Trump was arrested at a Klan rally in New York City on Memorial Day ninety years ago.

Trump made a point of pleading ignorance about the Klan and members past and present while a candidate for president, responding to former Klansman David Duke’s endorsement of him by saying, “I don’t know anything about David Duke, okay.

I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists.

I don’t know, did he endorse me? Or what’s going on.

Because I know nothing about David Duke.

I know nothing about white supremacists.” Previously, in 2000, Donald decided not to run for office on the Reform Party ticking, claiming that “Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani. This is not company I wish to keep.”

All this pushback looks suspicious in light of an article in The New York Times from 1927 that details a street fight between New York City police and the Ku Klux Klan, during which Trump’s father was arrested.

Notes the newspaper article with great specificity, “Fred Trump of 175-24 Devonshire Road, Jamaica, was discharged.”

Described a 2016 Washington Post article about the 1927 Memorial Day Klan rally that erupted into the fight, “The predication for the Klan to march, according to a flier passed around Jamaica beforehand, was that ‘Native-born Protestant Americans’ were being ‘assaulted by Roman Catholic police of New York City, when native-born Protestant Americans dare to organize to protect one flag, the American flag; one school, the public school; and one language, the English language.’”

Do you think President Trump bears his father’s influence?
