    Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke speaks to supporters at a reception Saturday, May 29, 2004, in Kenner, La.

    Donald Trump's son Eric took a verbal shot at David Duke and his white nationalists supporters Thursday, saying the former Ku Klux Klan leader "deserves a bullet." 

    Eric Trump told conservative radio host Ross Kaminsky, of Denver's 630 KHOW, that Duke and his supporters are "horrible people," and praised his father for his attempts at outreach to the black community.

    "Ross, it's disgusting, and by the way, if I said exactly what you said, I'd get killed for it, but I think I'll say it anyway, the guy does deserve a bullet," Trump said of Duke.

    "In fact, I commend my father. My father is the first Republican who's gone out and said, 'Listen, what's happened to the African-American community is horrible and I'm going to take care of it.'"
