Farrakhan Praises Trump For Not Taking Money From ‘Jewish Community’

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on Sunday praised Donald Trump as the only presidential candidate who hasn’t taken money from the “Jewish community,” according to the Anti-Defamation League.

Farrakhan said during his annual Saviors’ Day sermon delivered in Detroit that he wasn’t endorsing Trump, but that he liked “what I’m look­ing at.”

He said Trump “is the only mem­ber who has stood in front of Jew­ish com­mu­nity, and said, ‘I don’t want your money,'” as quoted by the Anti-Defamation League, which monitors anti-Semitism and bigotry. “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.”

Farrakhan also reportedly called Jewish people the “Syn­a­gogue of Satan” and blamed them for 9/11 and the Iraq War.
