Some of the world’s most infamous racists are starting to endorse Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Trump, who has refused three times to condemn KKK leaders’ endorsements, received backing from a number of high-profile racists, including French right-wing politician Jean-Marie Le Pen.

According to Quartz, Le Pen, who founded France’s anti-immigration National Front party, has argued that the Nazi occupation in WWII was not “particularly inhumane” and that there are too many non-white players on France’s football team. This weekend, Le Pen expressed his support for Trump on his Twitter account.

The English translation: “If I were American, I would vote Donald Trump, … but may God protect him!”

The former reality TV star also tweeted out a quote from the infamous WWII-era Italian fascist Benito Mussolini.

Quartz attempted to reach out to the Trump campaign for comment but have yet to receive a response. Trump also received an endorsement from white nationalist and former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke just days before La Pen’s support.

“Voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage,” Duke said on his radio program on Wednesday.

    I liked Nikki Haley’s response to the last Presidential state of the union speech by Obama. Now she is backing Rubio. OH BROTHER!!!?? Rubio’s name calling, labeling & overall ridicule is very immature for someone that aims to be a leader of USA!!! That type of jab just turns people off and I bet you THAT is why people will not vote for Rubio!
