White supremacist group, the Ku Klux Klan, will hold a victory party in North Carolina to celebrate Donald Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton.

Clinton suffered a stunning defeat on election night, as many critical swing states went to Trump.

The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan announced on their website they will hold a “Victory Klavalkade Klan Parade” on 3 December.

Saturday Night Live's infamous election comedy sketch even included Trump kiss a Ku Klux Klan member.

The group, which has about 200 members, did not mention the time or exact location.

David Duke, a former KKK leader, has also been vocal in his support for Trump throughout the campaign.

Initially Trump said he did not know anything about David Duke when asked about his support for his candidacy, but has since disavowed the former KKK grand wizard.

Trump’s son Eric took it a step further and said that Mr Duke “deserves a bullet”.

It was a polar opposite tweet from the previous night when protests raged in Democratic strongholds and Trump wrote: “Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”
