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.
