Ex-KKK Leader David Duke Says White Supremacists Will …

As the official start of the Unite the Right rally kicked off in Charlottesville, Virginia, former Ku Klux Klan leaderDavid Dukesaid the gathering of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and far-right individuals pointed to a future fulfillment of PresidentDonald Trumpspromises.

This represents a turning point for the people of this country, said Duke in video uploaded to Twitter by Indianapolis Star photojournalist Mykal McEldowney. We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. Thats what we believed in, thats why we voted for Donald Trump. Because he said hes going to take our country back. Thats what we gotta do.

In a tweet, Trump condemned hate and violence in response to clashes at the rally on Saturday, though he did not call out white supremacists in particular.

Duke responded to Trumps tweet by stating that Trump should remember that White Americans were the ones to put him in office.

Duke, a former KKK Grand Wizard, has long connected his message of white supremacy to ideas espoused by the president.

During the presidential campaign, Duke stated that he and Trump had similar messages,pointing to Trump proposing policies like a border wall or Muslim ban.

Donald Trump is talking implicitly. Im talking explicitly,Duke said last year, according to Time.

Duke supported Trumps campaign and publicly celebrated his lead on election night. Trump disavowed Duke and the KKK, but only after initially declining to do so, claiming he didnt know anything about him.

This weekends rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, called Unite the Right, was nominally billed as a protest against the removal of a monument to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The rally drew out hundreds of demonstratorsbearing Nazi symbols and Confederate flags and chanting racist slogans. Violence has erupted between the far-right rally attendees and counter-protestors, leading Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) to declare a state of emergency.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly referred to far-right rally participants as far-left.
