President Trump’s Thursday bombing of Afghanistan, just a week after an airstrike on Syria, is again challenging his “alt-right” and white nationalist fans.
Some of the far right-wingers see the moves as evidence of a full “Jewish coup” sweeping the White House — and are even portraying Trump himself as a sort of victim.
“All around him are these Jewish extremists like Kushner,” said David Duke, referring to Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law. Duke is a former Ku Klux Klan head and sort of elder statesman for white nationalists. “Trump might not even know half the things they do.”
