White nationalist David Duke says he’ll sue Donald Trump for stealing his ‘build the wall’ chant unless Trump delivers

Published

on

Before Donald Trump ran for president, former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard and outspoken white nationalist David Duke was the most notable advocate for building a wall on the Mexican border.

Duke also used sayings like “Make America Great Again” and “America First.”

Spike Lee is making a movie that features Duke, where the Holocaust denier and extreme racist will be played by Topher Grace from That 70s Show.

Grace was asked about the character, and referenced Duke suing Trump for taking his slogans.

Duke took to Twitter to deny he’s suing Trump—unless the president doesn’t deliver on their shared agenda.

Duke said he will come after Trump if he “fails to stand up to the Zio Deep Swamp State who wants to destroy our nation and destroy him… We want what you promised us!”

Trump and Duke have a complicated relationship. Duke has praised Trump, especially for things like his defense of the white nationalists who held a deadly rally in Charlottesville. Trump, meanwhile, has denied knowing who Duke is. Trump repudiated Duke’s endorsement after asking an interviewer if doing so “would make you feel better.” Donald Trump’s father attended a KKK rally in New York and was arrested there, though it is unclear whether he formally joined the group.

The South Carolina conservative has been harshly critical of the president's decision to move U.S. military personnel out of Syria where they have served as a bulwark againts a Turkish invasion, and now that the slaughter has begun, Graham has been seeking a way to lessen the damage as people are slaughtered.

Late Sunday, Graham tweeted, "Just spoke with President @realdonaldTrump. I applaud his decision to work with Congress to stop Turkeys aggression in Syria through crippling economic sanctions. This decision by President Trump will be a game changer -- in all the wrong ways -- for Turkey."

Kurdish forces warned they’d go to Putin and Assad if US withdrew: Former Trump envoy

Published

on

Now that President Donald Trump has made it clear that he will abandon Kurdish resistance fighters to be persecuted and killed by Turkish forces, the erstwhile U.S. allies are moving to cut a deal with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad to ensure their protection — all but wiping out U.S. support in the region.

Not only was this broadly predicted by experts, but according to The Daily Beast, former anti-ISIS special envoy Brett McGurk was warned explicitly by Kurdish officials last year that this would happen if America did not secure a deal to contain Turkey and ensure the Kurds' continuing security.

"Re: the video played over the weekend: The @POTUS @realDonaldTrump has not yet seen the video, he will see it shortly, but based upon everything he has heard, he strongly condemns this video," said Stephanie Grisham, the White House press secretary.
