Jumping into the Democratic primary, former KKK grand wizard David Duke has thrown his support behind Democratic Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard
Duke, who embraces bigoted and discriminatory political and social views, said he believes Gabbard will “finally…put America first.”
The comment seemed to swipe President Trump who Duke endorsed in 2016 (Trump disavowed the endorsement). Mantras Trump adopted early into the campaign were “Make America Great Again” and “America First.”
“Tulsi Gabbard in 2020. Finally a candidate for President who will really put America First?” Duke tweeted, as Twitchy reports.
As Twitchy also reports, Duke changed the banner photo at the top of his social media page to a picture of Gabbard.
“Tulsi Gabbard for President,” the new photo reads. And, “Finally a candidate who will actually put American First rather than Israel First!”
Gabbard recently announced her intention to run for the presidency in a Democratic primary which already included Democrat Senators Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Kamala Harris.
Former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders are expected to make decisions soon. A rising star in the Democrat Party, Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke, is also being rumored to launch a bid for the presidency and will appear on the Oprah Winfrey show.
