Just days after Hillary Clinton criticized the Trump campaign for promoting groups and individuals associated with preserving “white identity,” Donald Trump Jr. has retweeted an adherent of the “alt-right” movement that Clinton singled out for criticism.
Donald Trump’s oldest son this week retweeted a post from Kevin MacDonald, a former professor at California State University Long Beach. MacDonald said last week that white people in America are becoming a victimized minority. He has been accused of anti-Semitism by critics, including the Southern Poverty Law Center.
MacDonald’s tweet had to do with Clinton’s State Department and perceived favoritism for UBS, a global financial services company that donated to the Clinton Foundation.
Trump Jr.’s retweet prompted Richard Spencer, a leader of the alt-right movement, to tweet “Wow. Just wow.”
MacDonald is a director of the American Freedom Party, a political party formed in 2009 by William Daniel Johnson, a Los Angeles lawyer and white supremacist activist. Its platform includes a well-armed border wall, freedom from “foreign ideologies (including) liberalism, … multi-racialism, feminism,” and abolition of all “sensitivity training.”
After signing on with the party in 2010, Mac Donald told the Long Beach Press-Telegram: “My view is that white people have a right to organize to advance their interests, like everybody else does and is doing.”
MacDonald’s writings on Jews have been called anti-Semitic by the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center. He has also come under criticism because his research has been cited approvingly by white supremacist David Duke.
When interviewed by the Press-Telegram in 2007, MacDonald said that the interests of the “organized Jewish community” are in conflict with those of other ethnicities and ultimately aim to “lessen the power of the European-derived majority.”
