A prominent white supremacist who was supporting Donald Trump has switched his support to Hillary Clinton, he said on Monday.
Will Quigg, a grand dragon with the Ku Klux Klan’s California branch, said he supports Clinton because she has a “hidden agenda.”
“We want Hillary Clinton to win. She is telling everybody one thing, but she has a hidden agenda,” Quigg, a grand dragon of the KKK’s California chapter who is responsible for recruitment across the Western United States, told the Telegraph.

He did not elaborate on Clinton’s “hidden agenda,” saying: “I cannot reveal my sources.”
“It’s my opinion—if you know what I mean, wink, wink. I don’t want her to come back and say I’m slandering her,” he said.
He added: “She’s telling everybody what they want to hear so she can get elected, because she’s Bill Clinton’s wife, she’s close to the Bushes. [But] once she’s in the presidency, she’s going to come out and her true colors are going to show.”

Quigg said that some of the policies that Clinton has said she’s against, she actually supports.
“Border policies are going to be put in place. Our second amendment rights [favoring gun ownership] that she’s saying she’s against now, she’s not against. She’s just our choice for the presidency,” he claimed.
When asked why he said on Twitter last September that he was supporting Trump, Quigg said that “was before we found out about what Hillary Clinton’s main agenda was.”
But last year, he tweeted to Trump: “@realDonaldTrump. You Sir are the only hope we have of getting WHITE AMERICA BACK! We all will be voting for you!”
Quigg made headlines late last month after he was injured in a brawl with counter-protesters in Anaheim, California. He gave an interview after the fracas, saying that he asked police for security before their demonstration but was denied.
