A white supremacist super PAC is rolling out a fresh robocall campaign this week in Vermont and Minnesota telling voters, “Don’t vote for a Cuban. Vote for Donald Trump.”

In a recording of the robocall sent to TPM, American National Super PAC founder William Daniel Johnson calls on white Americans to brush aside their fears of being branded as racist and stop the “gradual genocide against the white race” by electing Trump.

“The white race is dying out in America and Europe because we are afraid to be called ‘racist,’” Johnson says in the recording, which will be pushed out Wednesday in Vermont and Thursday in Minnesota. Voters in both states will head to the polls on Super Tuesday to vote in the Republican presidential primary.

Johnson, who serves as the head of the white nationalist American Freedom Party, has pushed out similar robocall campaigns through his PAC in Iowa and New Hampshire. Both the party and PAC explicitly praise Trump for championing what they see as a pro-white, anti-immigrant message.

The PAC is not affiliated with Trump’s campaign, and Johnson previously told TPM that he has never communicated with the Republican presidential candidate. Just before the New Hampshire primary, Trump said he planned to return a $250 donation from Johnson.

Though Trump has said he “would disavow” the message espoused by his white nationalist supporters, he’s expressed sympathy with voters who are “angry” about the presence of undocumented immigrants in the U.S.

The real estate mogul also has suggested that his leading rivals, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), may not be eligible to serve as president. Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta to a Cuban father and an American mother, while Rubio was born in Miami to Cuban immigrants.

The American National Super PAC makes this call to support Donald Trump. I am William Johnson, a farmer and white nationalist.

The white race is dying out in America and Europe because we are afraid to be called “racist.” This is our mindset: It’s okay that our government destroys our children’s future, but don’t call me racist. I am afraid to be called racist. It’s okay to give away our country through immigration, but don’t call me racist. It’s okay that few schools anymorehave beautiful white children as the majority, but don’t call me racist. Gradual genocide against the white race is okay, but don’t call me racist. I am afraid to be called racist. Donald Trump is not a racist, but Donald Trump is not afraid.

Don’t vote for a Cuban. Vote for Donald Trump. (213) 718-3908. This call is not authorized by Donald Trump.
