Donald Trump say he knows nothing of White Supremacy

Washington (CNN)Donald Trump is trying to clean up a racially charged controversy Monday after he refused to disavow former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke over Donald Trump say he knows nothing of White Supremacy

When asked about his comments on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Trump blamed a “bad earpiece.”

“I was sitting in a house in Florida, with a bad earpiece,” the brash billionaire told NBC’s “Today” show. “I could hardly hear what he’s saying. I hear various groups. I don’t mind disavowing anyone. I disavowed Duke the day before at a major conference.”

In the hours that followed Trump’s original comments, the real estate mogul used Twitter to explain his remarks amid an outpouring of criticism from his

Republican presidential rivals. Sen. Marco Rubio slammed the remarks, saying they make Trump “unelectable.”

The Sunday uproar started when Trump was asked by Tapper whether he would disavow Duke and other white supremacist groups that are supporting his campaign.

“Just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke, OK?” Trump said.

Trump was pressed three times on whether he’d distance himself from the Ku Klux Klan — but never mentioned the group in his answers.

“I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists,” he said. “So I don’t know. 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.”
