The Anti Defamation League, who chastised Donald Trump for his lack of response after being endorsed by infamous KKK leader David Duke, said on its official website on Tuesday that anti-Semitic Islamic religious leader Louis Farrakhan has thrown his support behind the bombastic presidential hopeful.

Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Farrakhan delivered his statements in support of Donald Trump during his 2016 Saviors’ Day ser­mon on Sunday at the NOI’s Mosque Maryam in Chicago in which he also made anti-Semitic accusations of Jew­ish gov­ern­men­tal control. 

"[Donald Trump] is the only mem­ber who has stood in front of [the] Jew­ish com­mu­nity, and said I don’t want your money. 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. And they can­not afford to give up con­trol of the pres­i­dents of the United States," Farrakhan stated in his sermon. 



Farrakhan later distanced himself from outright support of Trump, saying: “Not that I’m for Mr. Trump, but I like what I’m look­ing at.”

Also in his sermon, Farrakhan blamed the Jewish people, which he refers to as the “Syn­a­gogue of Satan” for provoking 9/11 and the Iraq War. Far­rakhan defended his use of the phrase the “Syn­a­gogue of Satan” by dis­cussing its ori­gins from the Book of Rev­e­la­tions, and said "Satan is a human being with­out human char­ac­ter­is­tics. That’s why the rev­e­la­tor called them beasts in human form. These are peo­ple sit­ting in the Pen­ta­gon, plan­ning the destruc­tion of Mus­lim nations.”

Farrakhan also alleged that former president of the World Bank Paul Wolfowitz and other government officials have been planning "how they’re gonna clean out the Mid­dle East and take over those Mus­lim nations."


"Now they [Jews] got into the Bush admin­is­tra­tion and on 9/11 the Twin Tow­ers went down…George Bush, and those dev­ils, Satans around him. They plot­ted 9/11. Ain’t no Mus­lim took con­trol of no plane."

Farrakhan, who has served as the minister of major mosques in Boston and Harlem, has been heavily criticized in the past for his anti-Semitic and anti-white rhetoric.

The ADL condemned Farrakhan's comments as anti-Semitic, and adds him to the list of extremists who are throwing their support behind Donald Trump.

On Wednesday, Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke told his followers that a vote for any candidate other than Trump was “treason to your heritage."

Trump did not distance himself from the KKK leader and anti-Semite, and claimed he "didn't know anything" about Duke, however later stated that he didn't know Duke had endorsed him.

Trump did not condemn the endorsement by Duke or the statements made by Farrakhan in support of his campaign.
