According to a New York Times article published in June 1927, a man with the name and address of Donald Trumpís father was arraigned after Klan members attacked cops in Queens, N.Y.
In 1927, Donald Trumpís father would have been 21 years old, and not yet a well-known figure. Multiple sources report his residence at the time ó and throughout his life ó at the same address.
To be clear, this is not proof that Trump senior ó who would later go on to become a millionaire real estate developer ó was a member of the Ku Klux Klan or even in attendance at the event. Despite sharing lawyers with the other men, itís conceivable that he may have been an innocent bystander, falsely named, or otherwise the victim of mistaken identity during or following a chaotic event.
A person answering calls at the N.Y.C. Police Departmentís Records Section said that arrest reports dating that far back were not available in any form.
Thanks for posting this. It's good to know that Snopes is fair and balanced.

Trump’s White Identity Politics Appeals to Two Different Groups
This article explains the two sides of predominantly white people in America and how MrT says one thing regarding immigration and how each side perceives it. The obvious fear, to me, is the same as the 60’s when the fight started about the black folks being Allowed to vote. Now the white population has even a large group to stop taking over by sheer numbers and political changes it would bring. The article is part of a study.

This article explains the two sides of predominantly white people in America and how MrT says one thing regarding immigration and how each side perceives it. The obvious fear, to me, is the same as the 60ís when the fight started about the black folks being slowed to vote. Now the white population has even a large group to stop taking over by sheer numbers and political changes it would bring. The article is part of a study.
Thanks for posting.

from the article--
" . . . there seems to be a real psychological divide between whites who hold animus to other racial groups and those who show little sign of typical racial prejudice but are concerned about protecting their own groupóthough in practice, they often end up supporting politicians and policies that do hurt minority groups, as with Trump."

No, he’s not a white surpremacist. The problem is that he doesn’t have the balls to call out the racists that support him; he’s more or less providing cover and legitimizing their ideology.

If you already think that Trump is a white supremacist then how are you going to hear and process any words that are the least bit ridiculous? You are not listening, you are hearing what you want to hear. Same goes for conservatives and any sketchy thing that came out of Obama's mouth.

he literally called out white racists after Charlottesville. Your entire point is easily proven false.

Also, you have not proven white racists as a group favor Trump over Democrats or 3rd parties. there is no way this could be proven without the ability to read minds.

I have never seen Democrats call out the violence on minorities and white people supporting Trump by anti-fa types.

It was to the general "you."

Speaking slowly now. If one has already made up their mind that he is, then that determines how they "hear" what he says. Better?

Yeah, because he got his a** handed to him by the media for saying “there are good people on both sides.” That was original statement.
