"Donald Trump? ... I like Trump. He'll take America to hell in a rocket ship," Louis Farrakhan said.
It's not exactly an endorsement, but Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has praised Donald Trump for his financial independence from Jewish donors during a recent sermon.
Farrakhan is an avowed anti-Semite; according to the Anti-Defamation League, he used the same speech to blame Jews for 9/11 and the Iraq War. But is Trump really the anti-Jewish candidate Farrakhan hopes he is? Not quite.
