Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has praised Donald Trump for signaling that he wouldn’t be controlled by Jews as president.
At a sermon in Chicago over the weekend, Farrakhan praised the Republican presidential front-runner as part of an anti-Semitic tirade.
Farrakhan said, Trump “is the only member who has stood in front of 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.”
However, Farrakhan declined to fully endorse Trump.
“Not that I’m for Mr. Trump, but I like what I’m looking at,” the religious leader said.
In addition to his pro-Trump comments in his speech, Farrrakhan blamed Jews for the Iraq War and the 9/11 attacks.
