Mr.Trump, you have been praised by many extreme elements, including members of the KKK. What do you say to that?
I love the KKK; they make the greatest fried chicken—and the biscuits!, they're to die for!
Campaign Aide (sotto voce):
That's not the KKK, Mr. Trump. That's KFC.
Trump (sotto voce):
No, really? (Aloud): I mean I love all those bro fraternities with their three letters and their panty raids and their (laughing) fun hazing. In fact, I have a Phi Beta Kappa ring myself; I picked it up at an Atlantic City pawn shop. Shows that I'm not the only American who went bankrupt.
The KKK is not a group of college students. The KKK is an historically vicious and violent organization that is anti-semitic and anti-black people. They committed lynchings and burned crosses.
Yes, burned crosses and bombed black churches.
I am a Christian; I make sure all my wives are Christian. Can't have people burning crosses.
Then you disavow their support?
Yeah. OK. I disavow—if you want me to. BUT I DISAVOW MEXICANS AND MUSLIMS MORE!
