NCDP Calls on Trump Campaign to Disavow Racist Comments by Supporters in NC

“One person yelled ‘f— Black lives.’ Video … also captured two people shouting ‘white power.’”
Raleigh – According to a new report from the News & Observer, supporters of Donald Trump were caught on video shouting “white power” and expletives about black lives during a parade in North Carolina this weekend.

The incident took place near the campus of Elon University in Burlington, N.C.

NCDP Communications Director Austin Cook released the following statement:

“These despicable comments represent the absolute worst of our society and have no place in our state. The Trump campaign should immediately disavow these sentiments and condemn these supporters’ behavior, but I doubt anyone will be holding their breath.”
