Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine attempted the two-fingered thrust of a “Rattler Strike” while attending a voter-registration rally Friday at Florida A&M University, part of a two-day swing through the nation’s biggest presidential battleground state.
Wearing a green FAMU cap, Kaine threw out the school’s signature gesture. Then he urged students to register – and get family and friends to do the same before Florida’s Oct. 11 deadline for voting in the November election.
But Kaine also linked Republican presidential contender Donald Trump to racism at Florida’s only public, historically black university — picking up a theme aired this week by Democrat Hillary Clinton.
“He has supporters like David Duke, connected with the Ku Klux Klan, who are going around and saying Donald Trump is their candidate, because Donald Trump is pushing their values,” Kaine said.
“Ku Klux Klan values, David Duke values, Donald Trump values are not American values,” Kaine added. “They’re not our values.”
