Former KKK Leader
Lashes Out At Trump:
"It was white Americans that put
you in the Presidency!"

(NATIONAL) -- Evidently President Donald Trump has angered one of his one-time most ardent supporters, former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.

On Saturday Duke lashed out at Trump for condemning the violence and mayhem that resulted in deaths and injuries at that "white nationalist" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Some Americans believe the term white nationalist is simply a modern day code phrase for white supremacy.

In a series of tweets Saturday Duke questioned why the president was attacking white Americans who put him "in the presidency."

After violence erupted at the "Unite the Right" rally, Trump tweeted, "We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!"

In response, Duke tweeted: " I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists."

The rally in Charlottesville was put together in response to a plan to remove a statue of Confederate war general Robert E. Lee from a park in the city.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center which tracks what it calls "hate groups", Virginia and West Virginia are two states which have high concentrations of hate groups such as Neo Nazis, Ku Klux Klan cells, Neo-Confederate groups, Anti-Muslim groups and the Black Separatist Nation of Islam, to name a few.

Earlier on Saturday, Duke had referred to that rally as a "turning point" saying that protesters would fulfill the promises of Trump's candidacy.

In 2016 during a Louisiana Senate debate Duke said that that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton deserved the electric chair, according to TheHill.com.

Duke's comments came after the debate moderator questioned him about a blog post on his website criticizing "CNN Jews," according to the Hill report.

The dead and injured

After the smoke cleared in Charlottesville Saturday, the carnage toll was three people dead and 19 others injured in the demonstrations that turned violent and shocked many Americans.

One of the three died after a car mowed down a group of protesters and the two other victims were Virginia State Police Department officers who were in a helicopter that crashed nearby.

The helicopter crash happened a few miles outside of Charlottesville and it was not immediately clear what caused the crash which occurred after Virginia’s governor declared a state of emergency for the city after the violent clashes between white nationalist and Nazi groups and counter-protestors.

President Trump condemned the violence on Saturday afternoon at an event on veterans’ healthcare, but he did not specifically mention white nationalists or neo-Nazis, instead criticizing in general hatred and violence “on many sides.”

That in turn drew heavy criticism from people across the nation and even from members of Trump's own party.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said in a message on Twitter it was “very important for the nation to hear @POTUS describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists.”

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) wrote on Twitter, “Mr. President - we must call evil by its name. These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism."

On disavowing bigots

The NAACP said Saturday, "It's hard (for President Trump) to disavow bigots and hate when they are amongst your key strategists."

That reference is believed to have been targeted toward White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who formerly ran the right-wing, some would say extreme right wing Breitbart News, an online news website.

In November of last year House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized then President-elect Donald Trump’s hiring of Bannon as chief strategist, claming it undermined efforts to unite the country.

Bannon once referred to his news operation, which he ran out of his town house as "the platform of the alt-right,” which some Americans consider an extreme right-wing white ideological movement that promotes white supremacy.

Under Bannon's watch, Breitbart was known to run headlines such as “Bill Kristol, Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew” and “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy.”
