Donald Trump on David Duke and the KKK: “I don’t know.” “I have to look at the group.” “I will do research on them. And, certainly, I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong.” “You may have groups in there that are totally fine, and it would be very unfair.”

CNN Transcript:

JAKE TAPPER: I want to ask you about the Anti-Defamation League, which this week called on you to publicly condemn unequivocally the racism of former KKK grand wizard David Duke, who recently said that voting against you at this point would be treason to your heritage.

Will you unequivocally condemn David Duke and say that you don’t want his vote or that of other white supremacists in this election?

DONALD TRUMP: Well, just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke. OK? I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So, I don’t know.

I don’t know, did he endorse me or what’s going on, because, you know, I know nothing about David Duke. I know nothing about white supremacists. And so you’re asking me a question that I’m supposed to be talking about people that I know nothing about.

TAPPER: But I guess the question from the Anti-Defamation League is, even if you don’t know about their endorsement, there are these groups and individuals endorsing you. Would you just say unequivocally you condemn them and you don’t want their support?

TRUMP: Well, I have to look at the group. I mean, I don’t know what group you’re talking about.

You wouldn’t want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I would have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them. And, certainly, I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong.

TAPPER: The Ku Klux Klan?

TRUMP: But you may have groups in there that are totally fine, and it would be very unfair. So, give me a list of the groups, and I will let you know.

TAPPER: OK. I mean, I’m just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here, but…

TRUMP: I don’t know any — honestly, I don’t know David Duke. I don’t believe I have ever met him. I’m pretty sure I didn’t meet him. And I just don’t know anything about him.

TAPPER: All right.

P.S. Donald Trump knows exactly what the KKK is and who David Duke is — see documentation here.

    what’s wrong? I see nothing wrong with his viewpoints. I agree 100%. With everything except you contributing to the misinformation about trump being a racist. His wife is a damn immigrant for goodness sake! You go ahead and keep using the race card. Even the minorities are catching on to the liberals subtle ruse. Your game is up. People are sick of the political correct bull that’s going on. People are sick of the government playing us against each other while they throw away the Vaseline and go to town on the citizens of this country. IT’S OVER!!! PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP!!!! Trump is the only option to sidestep these idiots that have been running things for far too long!!!! Right & left!!!!! Time you start warming up to the fact that trump will be our next president. You can take that to the bank.

      Donald Trump is playing the racism card.
