Picture Reveals Truth About Trump, White Supremacy

A white supremacist rally was held at Charlottesville to protest the impending removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. David Duke, the former Imperial Wizard of notorious white supremacist group, the Ku Klux Klan, appeared at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Droves of counter-protestors descended on Charlottesville to opposed the hateful message of the rallygoers. Clashes during marches and violent scuffles dominated the reporting on the rally until a self-declared neo-Nazi plowed a car into a crowd of innocent counter protestors.

At the start of the rally, Duke stated that the event and everything it represented was a fulfilment of President Trump’s election promises. Shortly afterwards, Americans and the world alike were left in horror after a member of the white supremacist movement mowed down a crowd of counter-protestors, killing one and injuring 19 others. While the international spotlight was on the white supremacist rally, David Duke took the chance to speak up about the cause and outcomes of the Charlottesville tragedy. “This represents a turning point for the people of this country,” Duke began. “We are determined to take our country back, we're going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump, and that's what we believed in, that's why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he's going to take our country back and that's what we gotta do.”

Although President Trump has repeatedly condemned the violence, his vague address and failure to disavow the white supremacist movement has caused even more controversy for the embattled Trump Administration. The former KKK leader was quick to put pressure on the president following his ambiguous condemnation of the Charlottesville riots, tweeting: “It’s amazing to see how the media is able to bully the President of the United States into going along with their FAKE NEWS narrative.”

When President Trump slammed the Charlottesville rally as “hateful and violent,” Duke took another pot shot at the Commander-in-Chief, replying: “I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists.”

This is not the first time that President Trump has been forced to deny having links to ‘alt-right’ groups or personalities. Most recently, a doctored photo – showing Trump posing with one of the torch-carrying white supremacists at Charlottesville – is going viral on social media. In the fake photo, the face of the notorious ‘Millennial Matt’ was digitally superimposed on a photo of Trump smiling next to a university student.

When the photo was tweeted by Raf Sanchez, a popular writer for ‘The Telegraph’, the photoshopped image went viral, amassing more than 24,00 retweets before Sanchez realized his mistake. In a series of tweets, Sanchez informed his fans of his error and defended his motives, writing: “It appears @millenial_matt's profile picture is photoshopped… It's right to correct. It's also right that a great many of the Nazis in Charlottesville were Trump supporters.”
