It’s interesting enough that Donald Trump is refusing to condemn a recent endorsement from Ku Klux Klan clansmen David Duke, but now reports have been surfacing of Trump’s father, Fred Trump, being arrested in a KKK riot back in 1927, The Washington Post reports.
The riot began when members of the KKK began passing out fliers before it had even started, which said that “Native Americans born Protestant Americans” were being “assaulted by Roman Catholic police of New York City.” Also adding things like: “When native-born Protestant Americans dare to organize to protect one flag, the American flag; one school, the public school; and one language, the English language.” And: “Liberty and Democracy have been trampled upon.”
A total of seven men were arrested that day—whom were all represented by the same lawyer— including Fred Trump. Still, there is no context as to why exactly Trump’s dad was arrested. When confronted with the news story, Donald said that was not true.
“He was never arrested. He has nothing to do with this. This never happened. This is nonsense and it never happened,” he told the Daily Mail.
