In a truly unexpected turn of events, Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan and the Ku Klux Klan have both now praised GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

According to The Hill, during the Nation’s annual Saviours’ Day sermon in Chicago, Farrakhan commended Trump for not accepting money from the “Jewish community.”

“[Trump] is the only member who has stood in front of [the] Jewish community and said, ‘I don’t want your money,’” Farrakhan told his followers. “Anytime 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. And they cannot afford to give up control of the presidents of the United States. Not that I’m for Mr. Trump, but I like what I’m looking at.”

Even though his sentiments fall just short of an endorsement, many are surprised the leader of the black separatist group could find anything to applaud as far as the controversial real estate mogul is concerned.
