White supremacists and neo-Nazi groups enthusiastically embraced Trump

White supremacists and neo-Nazi groups enthusiastically embraced President Donald Trump Wednesday, seeing an endorsement of their cause in his insistence that left-wing groups were also to blame for the deadly violence at a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“This man is doing absolutely everything in his power to back us up and we need to have his back,” Andrew Anglin wrote on the DailyStormer, a neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic website that acts as a hub of the extreme right.

“It’s going to be really, really hard to have any bad feelings towards Trump for a long, long time after this,” he said.

Richard Spencer, the white nationalist organizer of the “Unite the Right” rally, hailed Trump’s statement as “fair and down to earth.” .. AFP
