Trump began his campaign for the presidency with racism, specifically against Mexicans. Over the course of the campaign, he attacked Muslims and used anti-Semitic memes and rhetoric.
Trump also has been playing into alt-right language, which is generally recognized as white nationalist racism.
After taking some time and being asked a million times, Trump eventually disavowedformer Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan David Duke, but the KKK has still considered Trump as their champ in attaining hate mainstream and legitimate.
Trump has denounced protests against him, but has said nothing about the KKK victory rally in his honor. So there’s that.
