It’s no secret that Donald Trump has become the candidate of choice of white nationalists, including Jared Taylor, a leading figure in the white nationalist movement, who recorded a robocall in favor of Trump before the Iowa caucuses.
That image was only reinforced earlier this month when Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., appeared on the notorious white nationalist radio program “The Political Cesspool.”
On Saturday, Taylor joined “Political Cesspool” host James Edwards on his program, where the two expressed optimism about the future of what Edwards called the “pro-white” movement, something that they attributed in part to Trump’s candidacy.
Edwards gushed about an “awakening happening within the spirit of our people” that was beyond his “wildest dreams” when he started his program.
Taylor said that he too was “hugely encouraged” by the growth of the movement, particularly among “young people” who have “grown up with it.” He described it as “a real sea change.”
“The most visible manifestation of this is the support for Donald Trump,” Taylor added. “Donald Trump is an opportunity for ordinary Americans to say they are fed up. And one of the big things they’re fed up about is the racial changes going on in the United States and they think Donald Trump might actually do something about it.”
“Even if he’s dog whistling about some of our issues,” Edwards responded, “he gives the people cover to come out and be more apparent in their beliefs, and I think that’s certainly a good thing.”
