DONALD Trump has clarified his position on violent white supremacists by confirming that he really likes being ‘hailed’.
The US president stressed that an individual’s views on race or Hitler were not particularly important compared to their willingness to shout ‘Hail Trump’ in a public place.
He said: “Who doesn’t want to be hailed? No-one, that’s who.
“When I see a group of men marching down a street shouting ‘Hail Trump’ it feels good. Very good. They don’t necessarily have to be wearing the same uniform, but it does help.
“Then I see a large group of people saying mean things about me – i.e not hailing me at all.
“You would have to be some sort of idiot not to prefer the people who are hailing you.”
He added: “Also, I like their pointy hats and their cool flags. Good branding!”
