Donald Trump Jr., who is actively campaigning for his father, gave an interview on Tuesday on "Liberty Roundtable," a conservative Utah-based radio show hosted by Sam Bushman.
During the show he was questioned by James Edwards, another radio host whose show "The Political Cesspool" is described by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a leading U.S. civil rights group, as "racist and anti-Semitic."
During the interview, conducted over the telephone, Trump Jr. talked about what a good father Donald Trump was and how his campaign is changing the Republican Party.
“It’s not a campaign anymore, it’s a movement,” he told his interviewers. (Click Here)
The show, founded in 2005 and syndicated by Bushman's Liberty News Radio organization, has featured such extremists as former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke and Holocaust denier Willis Carto.
Edwards also said on his blog he had attended a Memphis rally for the billionaire candidate as a credentialed media member last Saturday.
The Trump campaign, asked about an interview in the presence of the Tennessee-based Edwards, denied any knowledge of it. The campaign also said it did not know about Edwards' personal views.
Donald Trump Jr. told Bloomberg he wouldn’t have consented to an interview with a pro-slavery radio host had he known the host held those views.
“This is clearly the mainstream media trying to turn a story into nothing -- much like they did with my father, who I witnessed denouncing David Duke and any KKK endorsement on multiple occasions,” the younger Trump says
