Donald Trump can’t seem to stop receiving support from white supremacists. The latest example involves a mock campaign poster from none other than David Duke himself, the former Ku Klux Klan leader and Trump superfan, who seems to think he’d make a great vice president.

Duke tweeted Thursday a Trump-Duke ticket would be the New York billionaire’s “best life insurance” and offered up a photoshopped campaign poster to help out his chosen presidential candidate.

The fake campaign poster featured heavily photoshopped images of Duke and Trump in front of an American flag with a fake campaign banner that had the two men’s names together along with the phrase “Make America White Again” — a play on Trump’s actual campaign slogan. The image also included a call to “stop the ethnic cleansing of white Americans!” and a link to In one corner of the image, a likeness of what appears to be George Washington is superimposed over the photo of Duke.

These came hours after Duke first tweeted a “campaign poster” featuring him and Trump that he said was “sent to us by a friend.” This is far from the first time Duke has shared his admiration for Trump, as he frequently comes to Trump’s defense and said earlier this year when people compare the real estate mogul to Adolf Hitler, they are “rehabilitating that fellow with the mustache back there in Germany.”

Duke’s support from Trump prompted a major campaign controversy when the Republican initially refused to disavow support from Duke and other white supremacist groups. He quickly reversed course and blamed his hesitancy on a “bad earpiece” but when he was first asked about Duke by CNN’s Jake Tapper, Trump said: “Just so you understand, I don't know anything about David Duke, OK?”

When pressed further Trump continued to claim he did not know what Tapper was talking about. “I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists,” Trump said. “So I don’t know. I don’t know — did he endorse me, or what’s going on? Because I know nothing about David Duke. I know nothing about white supremacists.”



More recently, Trump’s campaign selected a prominent white nationalist as one of its delegates in California. When the selection of William Johnson, the white nationalist, was reported by Mother Jones, Trump blamed the situation on a “database error” and Johnson said he would resign.

Trump’s interactions with white supremacists haven’t been limited to these public snafus. It’s been well documented that white nationalists around the country are excited by Trump’s candidacy, and many of his Twitter interactions are with accounts that follow white supremacists.

Now that Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee, he has begun the process of looking for a vice presidential candidate, but even if he claims never to have heard of Duke, it seems unlikely the white supremacist’s proposal will be taken seriously.
