If you’ve been paying attention to the news, you’d know that Donald Trump is racking up political endorsements left and right. But who exactly is throwing their support behind the GOP frontrunner? Some of the most racist and xenophobic figures in the public eye. Not joking. This is the anti #SquadGoals.

The American National Super PAC was founded by William Daniel Johnson (dude pictured above) and they have thrown their unofficial weight behind the Trump. They even paid for these robocalls begin people to not vote for a Cuban:

Chris Christie very openly attacked Donald Drumpf on the campaign trail. As soon as it was clear to him that he had no chance of winning, he dropped out and endorsed Mr. Spray Tan. And why is he racist? Here’s a choice quote he gave to CNN:
“I’m going to have Fred Smith, the founder of FedEx, come work for the government for three months. Just come for three months to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and show these people. … We need to have a system that tracks you from the moment you come in and then when your time is up. However long your visa is, then we go get you and tap you on the shoulder and say, ‘Excuse me, it’s time to go.'”
Paul LePage, Maine Governor
The Governor of the whitest state in America (this is actually true, look it up) has had one gaffe after another since taking office in 2011. But none has been as epic or noteworthy as the time he was racist while talking about his state’s heroin problem. (Fun fact: a lot of white families are calling for softer drug laws because their kids are now junkies):
“These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty – these types of guys. They come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home. Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.”

Does this woman really need an introduction? Let’s just remind people of the time she told Jorge Ramos that Mexicans being more dangerous than ISIS:
“If you don’t want to be killed by ISIS, don’t go to Syria. If you don’t want to be killed by a Mexican, there’s nothing I can tell you.”
David Duke, Former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan

Duke is known for his pro-white rhetoric. He was, after all, the top ranking member of the Ku Klux Klan. Since the ’90s, Duke has publicly acknowledged that he is a “real racist” and is working towards the betterment of the white race, because white people just can’t win anymore. Amiright? Here’s what he told Politico:
“He’s [Donald Trump] made it OK to talk about these incredible concerns of European Americans today, because I think European Americans know they are the only group that can’t defend their own essential interests and their point of view. He’s meant a lot for the human rights of European Americans.”

Arpaio isn’t much of a talker, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t set out to make the lives of Latinos who dare to step inside the unfriendly confines of Maricopa county a living hell. He dislikes Latinos so much, that the federal government opened an investigation because he “[usurped] federal authority” by performing sweeping and unnecessary raids of undocumented immigrants.

Jeff Sessions’s favorite term for undocumented immigrants and/or Central American refugees is “deportables.” Seriously. You cannot make this shit up. Sessions has also worked tirelessly to block all immigration reform in the Senate and has introduced multiple bills to toughen immigration policy and expedite the deportation of people.
