NORTH CAROLINA (KGTV) -- The Loyal White Knights, one the country's largest Ku Klux Klan groups, has announced it will host a victory parade in honor of President-elect Donald Trump.
 
The "Victory Klavaklade Klan Parade" will take place Dec. 3, according to the group's website.
 
"TRUMP = TRUMP'S RACE UNITED MY PEOPLE," the announcement reads.
 
The group did not specify a time or where the parade will be held.
 
While the group may be celebrating Trump's victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, LWK's website disparages against politicians saying, "There [sic] kids go to private schools that do not have to put up with the drug gangs like the average American kid."
 
"They spend their time watching the stock market and playing a couple of rounds of golf at the tax payers expense," the site says.  Trump owns and operates several golf resorts around the world.
 
Trump had been criticized earlier during his presidential campaign for failing to immediately denounce the endorsement of David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
 
Last Wednesday, Trump's campaign rejected the endorsement of a Ku Klux Klan-affiliated newspaper,  The Crusader, after it used his "Make America Great Again" slogan as its headline for an editorial praising the catchphrase and the Republican presidential candidate. The Crusader bills itself as "The Premier Voice of the White Resistance."
