Real-estate tycoon, Republican presidential front-runner and general life-support-system-for-an-ego Donald Trump has a knack for saying what’s on his mind. His rhetoric about urban unrest among African-Americans, police under fire, and disease-carrying Mexican criminals gives voice to the fears of an aging, shrinking majority of white Americans — you know, folks who stand up in town hall meetings and shout “I want my country back” after a black Democrat with a foreign-sounding name is elected president.

Predictably, it turns out that much of what spills out of Trump’s mouth also appeals to neo-nazis, white supremacists and other assorted hate groups. As they say, you are the company you keep.
