On the day Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will deliver remarks about Trump’s association with the “alt-right,” she tweeted out a campaign ad attacking Trump for having the support of some crazy people.

In the ad, a Klu Klux Klan leader is shown saying to fellow KKK members, “The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes in we believe in.”

The ad continues by saying, “These people support Trump. These people support Trump, because they believe Trump supports them.”

The KKK Imperial Wizard later tells a black reporter, “Donald Trump would be best for the job [of president.]”

A voiceover of a white nationalist, said to be used in a robocall for Trump, is then played.

A clip flashes on the screen showing Jared Taylor of American Renaissance, a self-described “white advocacy” website, telling CNN why he supports Trump, particularly for “sending out the illegals” and “building a wall ” and pushing for a “moratorium of Islamic immigration. That’s very appealing to ordinary white people.”

The most well-known KKK member, David Duke, is heard saying that voting against Donald Trump is “really treason to your heritage.”

Trump is shown telling CNN that he doesn’t know anything about white supremacists. The ad then centers on new Trump campaign CEO and former Breitbart News CEO Steve Bannon. Journalists on cable TV then go on to describe Breitbart News as a depot for the alt-right, “which is racist and all sorts of other ‘ists.’”

The ad closes with saying, “If Trump wins, they could be running the country.”

Clinton received fringe support of her own in May from Communist Party USA leader John Bachtell, according to U.S. News and World Report. Originally a supporter of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Bachtell said that Sanders’ supporters should put aside their issues with Clinton. CPUSA later endorsed Clinton last week during their convention.

“The most important thing is keeping our eye on this extreme right-wing danger and really hoping that all political organizations and democratic forces will unite together to try to defeat that,” Bachtell said.

He explained, “Whoever emerges from the primary fight, there will be a very broad coalition to try to get them elected,” he says. “We support independence from the Democratic Party and work with forces laying the groundwork for a third party, but it’s not realistic in this election.”

He later added that, while he is concerned about a Trump presidency and a Republican majority Congress, “he doesn’t believe Trump is a fascist ‘in the sense of Hitler.'”
