Have you heard? Donald Trump failed Sunday, on multiple occasions, to denounce the former leader of the KKK, David Duke and Duke’s endorsement. When asked whether he accepted Duke’s endorsement, Trump could not bring himself to say that he refuses the KKK’s nod in his direction.
That unbelievable display by Trump was too much for the former Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. Romney took to twitter, saying how “disgusting” it was to see Donald Trump – the current leader in the Republican race for president – refuse to turn his back on the KKK. Romney called Trump’s response, “disqualifying.”
“His coddling of repugnant bigotry is not the character of America,” Romney tweeted.
A disqualifying & disgusting response by @realDonaldTrump to the KKK. His coddling of repugnant bigotry is not in the character of America.
