The Trump campaign has accepted thousands of dollars from racist extremists, including a neo-Nazi leader who runs an outpost of the Aryan Nations in Louisiana.
According to data collected by Popular Information, a politics newsletter written by journalist Judd Legum, Morris Gulet, the leader of the Louisiana chapter of Aryan Nations, has donated at least $2,000 to the Trump campaign since December 2017.
The campaign was reportedly made aware of the donations in 2018 by The Forward, though it has not returned the money.
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
Popular Information also detailed a number of others who have donated to the Trump campaign, including businessman Peter Zieve, who was sued by Washington state over allegations of discriminating against minority employees, handing out “procreation bonuses” to his nearly all-white staff, and called immigrants from developing countries “repulsive.”
Zieve, who settled the lawsuit in 2017, has donated $5,600 to support Trump’s campaign, Popular Information reported.
Other donors include Timothy Mellon and KC McAlpin. Mellon, a businessman who said social programs made Black people “unwilling to pitch in to improve their own situations,” donated to a Trump Super PAC, while McAlpin, an associate of John Tanton, who has founded a number of anti-immigrant groups, donated $1,600 to the campaign.
