Skip to comments.CNN anchor Jake Tapper asks Donald Trump 3 times if he would condemn David Duke and the KKK

CNN anchor Jake Tapper repeatedly asked Donald Trump on Sunday to denounce David Duke's support for his candidacy, but Trump insisted he didn't know anything about about the former KKK grand wizard.
"Will you unequivocally condemn David Duke and say that you don't want his vote and that of other white supremacists in this election?" Tapper asked Trump on "State of the Union."
But Trump, the Republican presidential frontrunner, said he didn't have enough information to answer the question:
I don't know anything about David Duke, OK? I don't know anything about what you're even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So I don't know. I mean, I don't know did he endorse me or what's going on? Because I know nothing about David Duke. I know nothing about white supremacists. And so you're asking me a question that I'm supposed to be talking about people that I know nothing about.
BuzzFeed reported last week that Duke, a prominent white nationalist, urged his supporters to back Trump. Duke was quoted saying on his radio show that "voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage."
On his Sunday show, Tapper continued to press Trump on the subject.
"Even if you don't know about their endorsement, there are these groups and individuals endorsing you. Would you just say unequivocally that you condemn them and you don't want their support?" he asked Trump.
But Trump again insisted again he didn't know about Duke:
I have to look at the group. I mean, I don't know what group you're talking about. You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them.

I wish Trump had said something like, “I don’t know anything about David Duke, but I do remember Robert Byrd, and for the life of me, I don’t know how the liberals could have allowed him to stay in office and represent them for almost six decades.”
Peter Criss wants his costume back.
Out of what . . . a thousand?
I love the one liners you guys come up with. They remind me of the Jeff Foxworthy routine from a few years ago “Here is your sign”. Maybe you should put that one in your tag line?
While you continue to post your petty bs. Muslim rapegees are being located in America.
Were Muslim Refugees Resettled in your Town in 2015?

Go to the link and see if Muslim Refugees/Terrorists? were relocated to
your city or a town close by to your family.
The MSM stooges trying to make Trump jump/
But hanging Beck around Cruz’s neck is fair game /s
Average poster here or citizen of America today under 55 really doesn’t know what racism is nor that it’s a canard
It’s a tool we created and loaded with ammo to kill America
David Duke moonbat sometime Nazi and obviously racist in the conventional sense recognizes that fact more than 90% of the country
He exploits it to his own ends
I doubt his endorsements mean anything but fuel for our enemies
Trump claimed not to know who Duke is or what a white supremacist is?
He is either lying (again) or top stupid and uninformed to be president.
It’s not like it would take any guts to renounce David Duke, he is as bad as Sharpton or the New Black Panthers.
So why the brain fart with Tapper?
He should have said he dislikes any white supremacy groups and any groups which dislike another based on color...that is all groups.
That said it is hard to hold up or hold back on these hateful media losers. TRUMP is doing fine.
I’m past all this crap and looking to the convention and Trump vs Romney and GOPe.
Yes, Jake Tapper had no problem with Obama sending Al Sharpton from the white house to start race riots all over the country.
Jake can kiss my pickle.
“Senator Sanders, you honeymooned in the Soviet Union; the same Soviet Union that systematically starved to death over 30 million of its own citizens. Was that a mistake?”
(Questions you’ll never hear from the MSM: #42)
Lying to the media is not a sin.
Hard to believe that a creature/product of the media like Trump—who openly brags about knowing (or knowing of) almost everyone, has never heard of David Duke. And if he hasn’t, what is his campaign staff doing?
During every campaign, there are fringe characters like Duke who will endorse a candidate just to attract attention to themselves and their “cause.” If I’m not mistaken, the former KuKluxer has pulled this stunt before, and campaigns immediately renounce him. Duke’s “support” should have been disavowed by Trump immediately.
If The Donald thinks the white supremacist vote is going to put him over the top, he is sadly mistaken.
I will say this much in Trump’s defense. Tapper is a hypocrite in pressing Trump on the Duke issue when he refuses to ask the Dims about pandering to Black Lives Matter. BLM is just as racist as the Klan, but no Democrat or reporter will point out the obvious similarities between BLM and white supremacist groups.
Hillary is going to beat Trump silly. I wouldn’t be surprised if he loses every single state.
Bomb making terrorists like Bill Ayers support the kenyan. Obama started his political career in Ayers living room! Did any of these presstitues ever badger him to repudiate them? No because all of them (journos & terrorists) are members of good standing of the Democrat Party.
It’s been obvious for at least a year that Hillary will beat any Republican candidate in November. The map will look a lot like it did in 2012.
Yup! You’re right. The state controlled “media” treats non-DemocRATS a lot differently than they treat their sexually disoriented comrades.
