Trump-Supporting White Supremacist Super PAC Robocalls Voters: 'We Don't Need Muslims'

A white nationalist super PAC is robocalling New Hampshire voters to voice their support for Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump.

"I urge you to vote for Donald Trump because he is the one candidate who points out that we should accept immigrants who are good for America," Jared Taylor, the online editor of AmRen, the media outlet of the white nationalist group American Renaissance, said on the robocall. "We don’t need Muslims. We need smart, well-educated white people who will assimilate to our culture. Vote Trump."

The robocall is sponsored by the American National Super PAC, which was created by three white nationalist leaders, and is organized under a separate group called the American Freedom Party.

The group used similar robocalls in Iowa to attract voters to Trump.

Taylor is also a spokesman for the Council of Conservative Citizens, which is largely considered a white supremacist group, and allegedly inspired Dylann Roof, the man responsible for the Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting last year that claimed the lives of nine people, CNN notes.

Taylor does not call himself a white nationalist or white supremacist, but prefers the term “white advocate.”

“I would disavow” the group’s robocalls to voters, Trump said on CNN’s “Outfront” in January after the calls began in Iowa. He added that the “anger” the group shows is understandable.

"As far as I'm concerned, anger is OK," Trump said. "Anger and energy is what this country needs."

The robocalls do acknowledge that they have not been authorized by Trump.

Reverend Ronald Tan, a Filipino American who hosts the Christian radio talk show program “For God and Country,” told the American Freedom Party he chose to work with white nationalists who support Trump because, “America has lost its direction.”

“Donald Trump is called ‘The Great White Hope’ for racially conscious whites, but he is also called of God to make America great again,” Tan said.
