I’ve been giving this issue considerable thought and have come to the conclusion that there IS some truth to the claim that the KKK, etc. “supported President Trump,” though not for the reasons the left would have us believe. One thing that characterizes all of those groups is their xenophobia…their hatred of anything or anyone that doesn’t look like them, thinks like them or behaves like them. When the lefties started (wrongly) accusing President Trump of being a xenophobe, the leadership of these groups seemed to say, “Aha! In THIS President we have a kindred soul!” Overlooking the FACT that prior to his election, he’d been a staunch supporter of many African American/Hispanic/Jewish “causes.” He successfully sued the county in Florida where Mar-a-Lago is located because county officials had wanted him to bar blacks and Jews from membership, creating a precedent which eventually caused ALL such clubs to admit minorities too. When United Airlines refused to fly a seriously ill Jewish boy from Kalifornia to New York for treatment because he had to travel with burdensome life-support equipment, Trump sent his own, private plane to Kalifornia to transport him to the East Coast for treatment at no cost to the family. When a black NYC bus driver stopped his bus on an overpass bridge and talked a woman down from an attempted suicide, Trump sent the man a check for $10K because he thought such thoughtfulness deserved a reward. When a black employee struggled with alcohol and drug addictions, Trump didn’t “kick her to the curb,” but rather supported her efforts to become addiction-free. When a NYC passerby stopped and changed a flat tire for Trump on his vehicle, Trump asked what he could do for the man. The man gave him his address and asked that Trump send his wife a bouquet of flowers. When the flowers arrived, there was a note attached saying, “Thanks again. I also paid off your mortgage!” The point is, Trump’s not and never HAS been a xenophobe OR a racist of any sort. As that became more and more apparent thoughout his 4 year tenure in the White House, those same KKK, Neo-Nazis, etc. wandered away, looking for a REAL racist to support.
EDIT: NEVER make the mistake of thinking that because some of these racist groups agreed with President Trump on one or two issues that PRESIDENT TRUMP…or the vast majority of those who voted for him…agree with THEM. That’s what Democrats will claim and, as usual, they’re dead-bang wrong.
