A member of the Washington, D.C. city council helped finance the Nation of Islam’s Saviours’ Day event; the prominent rally that featured Louis Farrakhan’s three-hour long rant against the “Satanic Jew.”

According to the Washington Post, council member Trayon White Sr. instructed his team to make a $500 donation to the event; raising new questions over the Democratic party’s relationship to the notorious anti-Semite.

“The Brothers from the Nation are of the few men that show up to help . . . us address crime and social ills in Southeast. They also run a feeding program in several public housing communities in ward 8,” White wrote in a text message. “I’m a Christian but I support a lot of people and all religions who support my community.”

“He said to me, ‘I want you to make a payment to the Nation of Islam for Saviours’ Day,’ ” Darryl Ross, the treasurer, told the Post. “So I went on the website to get the information I needed in order to make the payment.”
