Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump late Wednesday thanked and retweeted a message of support from a man who identified himself as a Dutch white supremacist.

Twitter user @keksec_org tweeted at the real estate mogul to tell him “I truly believe you are the best to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.”

Trump shared the message with his own followers and thanked the Twitter user, whose bio read “#KekSec/Stop #WhiteGenocide/White Preservist/Programmer/Dutch Patriot/Race War when?”

And view @keksec_org’s Twitter profile. The reference to a “race war” was removed after this post was published:

It wasn’t the first time Trump retweeted the user, either:

It’s unclear exactly who is behind @keksec_org, whose tweets lie in an ambiguous grey area between trolling and flat-out racism.

A personal website listed in the user’s bio leads to a page promising “the dankest memes online.” After securing the first Trump retweet, the user tweeted again at the billionaire: “I wish you were my dad, so we can #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.”

But @keksec_org retweets missives from Geert Wilders, an anti-Muslim Dutch politician, as often as tweets about Trump. The user also frequently laments white genocide and defends slavery and colonialism on Twitter. @keksec_org dismisses black critics by calling them “melanin enhanced” or referring to the “feeble mind of the African American negro.”
