Only six newspapers have endorsed the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump, and the latest happens to be run by a racist white supremacist group.

On Tuesday the Ku Klux Klan released its endorsement of Trump on the front page of the Crusader. The newspaper acts as a means of communication regarding KKK news and events.

The endorsement is somewhat unexpected. But Trump has retweeted the posts of white supremacist sites in the past, and also received an endorsement from David Duke, an ex-Klan leader. The Trump campaign disavowed Duke’s support, however.

As of this writing, Trump has yet to denounce the KKK endorsement.
