Louis Farrakhan Praises Trump For Standing Up to ‘Jew­ish Community’

farrakhanNation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan praised Donald Trump during a sermon earlier this month, saying the Republican frontrunner was the only one not being controlled by the Jews.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, Farrakhan told parishioners of Chicago’s Mosque Maryam Sunday that Trump “is the only mem­ber who has stood in front of Jew­ish community, and said I don’t want your money.”

“Any time a man can say to those who con­trol the pol­i­tics of Amer­ica, ‘I don’t want your money,’ that means you can’t con­trol me,” he continued. “And they can­not afford to give up con­trol of the pres­i­dents of the United States.’”

Farrakhan has a long history of anti-Semitic comments, saying that Jews were behind the 9/11 attacks and that God was the one who “put them in the oven.” His praise of Trump comes after the presidential candidate was endorsed by former Klansman David Duke, an endorsement he disavowed before demurring during a CNN interview Sunday.
