Trump Thanks Self-Described Dutch White Supremacist For His Support

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.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
