Donald Trump won the Nevada GOP caucuses Tuesday in a messy night of voting punctuated by allegations of fraud, intimidation and a slew of other instances of disorganization and chaos. In one of the most extreme cases of such irregularities, several alleged Trump supporters at a caucus site at a Las Vegas high school were photographed sporting white, hooded Ku Klux Klan robes. The men, holding signs saying they were members of the New England Police Benevolent Police Association — a controversial group that endorsed Trump in December — expressed their support for the GOP front-runner. “Make America Great Again,” read one sign, which was equipped with a GoPro camera.
It remained unclear — even to people who purportedly witnessed their presence — whether the men at Cimarron High School were actual Trump backers or were merely drawing attention to the bigoted rhetoric the bombastic billionaire has employed on the stump.
The masked duo left without incident at around 6 p.m. as soon as Las Vegas Metropolitan police officers were called to the school, which is private property, and asked them to leave, according to a local report.
