The Ku Klux Klan is planning a victory march in North Carolina to celebrate Donald Trump’s presidential success.

The parade is being organised by the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and is set to take place on December 3 in Pelham – a city at the North Carolina and Virginia border.

Plans for the ‘klavalkade Klan parade’ were revealed on the infamous white nationalist group’s website on Thursday alongside a photo of Trump.

Part of the announcement read: ‘Trump = Trump’s race united my people’.

It is not yet known where exactly the rally will take place.

It comes after former KKK grand wizard David Duke claimed credit for Trump’s presidential success, claiming his people played a ‘huge role’ in the shock victory.

Duke, who failed to win a Senate seat in Louisiana, tweeted support for the billionaire businessman as it emerged he was set to defeat Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s campaign also received a strong endorsement from the KKK’s newspaper The Crusader – but his staff described the publication as ‘repulsive’.

Speaking to his fans following this morning’s shock announcement, Duke told his followers on Twitter: ‘This is one of the most exciting nights of my life. Make no mistake about it, our people have played a huge role in electing Trump.

‘Donald J Trump now has the chance to become one of the greatest Americans to have ever lived. We have the moral high ground.

‘Make no mistake about it. Donald J Trump owes his victory to The South.’

Trump received the support of The Crusader in its last edition before polling day.

The newspaper bills itself as ‘The Premier Voice of the White Resistance’.

Trump’s campaign attempted to distance himself from the extreme right wing ‘views do not represent the tens of millions of Americans who are uniting behind our campaign’.
