David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan who has implored people to vote for Donald Trump, said in a tweet Thursday that the presumptive Republican nominee reminded him of America’s first president. “George Washington, the father of our country was just like Trump: a non-interventionist,” Duke posted on Twitter after sharing a picture of himself standing next to Trump with Washington super-imposed in the bottom right corner.
“What’s amazing is that Trump is the ONLY candidate defending the people whose forefathers created America! ABOUT TIME!” Duke exclaimed moments after Trump met with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
Trump has previously said that he did not know who Duke was, despite talking about him in the past.
Duke also suggested that he should be Trump's vice presidential pick tweeting "#TrumpDuke2016 It'd be Trump's best LIFE INSURANCE.The Zio NeoCon Mossad boys would not dare touch him if I was heartbeat from Presidency."
