The American Freedom Party, a self-described white nationalist group, announced that robocalls and radio ads would urge voters in Iowa to support Donald Trump.
The message was paid for by the American National Super PAC, a group started by American Freedom Party chairman William Daniel Johnson. In the message, Johnson notes it was not approved by Trump.
In a press release, the group shared the statements in the robocall:
The American National Super PAC makes this call to support Donald Trump.
“My name is Reverend Ronald Tan, host of the Christian radio talk show program For God and Country. First Corinthians states: God chose the foolish things of this world to shame the wise and God chose the weak things of this world to shame the strong. For the Iowa caucuses, please support Donald Trump. He is courageous and he speaks his mind. God Bless.”
“I’m Jared Taylor with American Renaissance. I urge you to vote for Donald Trump because he is the one candidate who points out that we should accept immigrants who are good for America. We don’t need Muslims. We need smart, well-educated white people who will assimilate to our culture. Vote Trump.”
Among the American Freedom Party’s platforms is an opposition to “immigrant invasion.” Like Trump, the party supports building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.
Trump has also called for shutting down Muslim immigration to the U.S.
The party is also presenting its own presidential candidate, Bob Whitaker. In a statement, Whitaker, whose slogan is “Diversity is a code word for white genocide,” said he supported Johnson’s work for Trump.
“My campaign is there to help keep the candidates on point regarding race in America,” Whitaker said.
