The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan announced it will celebrate President-elect Donald Trump’s victory with a parade next month.

On the Pelham, North Carolina-based KKK website, the group announced it will host a “Victory Klavalkade Klan Parade.” The event will take place Dec. 3 in North Carolina. No other details, like an exact location and time were provided.

The post was complete with an image of Trump with a seal that read, “president of the United States.”

The white supremacist group’s announcement comes after a wave of protests have rocked America in response to Trump’s election. 2,000 students at UCLA protested peacefully while broken windows and fires emerged in Oakland, California. Meanwhile, chants of “No Trump, No KKK, No fascist USA” could be heard in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, according to Atlanta Black Star.

However, ex-KKK leader David Duke expressed pleasure in the election night outcome. He backed Trump as a Republican presidential candidate back in February.

“I haven’t formally endorsed him,” Duke said on the David Duke Radio Program. “But I do support his candidacy, and I support voting for him as a strategic action. I hope he does everything we hope he will do.”

On Twitter, the former Louisiana state representative proclaimed election night as “one of the most exciting nights of my life.”

“Make no mistake about it, our people have played a huge role in electing Trump!” he added.

Duke also gave credit to the South for Trump’s win.

Additionally, KKK newspaper The Crusader, touted as the “Premier Voice of the White Resistance,” voiced support for Trump the week before the election.

“While Trump wants to make America great again, we have to ask ourselves, ‘What made America great in the first place?’ ” The article said in part. “The short answer to that is simple. America was great not because of what our forefathers did — but because of who our forefathers were. America was founded as a White Christian Republic. And as a White Christian Republic it became great.”

The Trump campaign swiftly released a statement putting down the paper’s support. “This publication is repulsive, and their views do not represent the tens of millions of Americans who are uniting behind our campaign,” they said in a statement to CNN.
