The Ku Klux Klan is to stage a rally in North Carolina to celebrate Donald Trump winning the US election. 

The white supremacist group officially endorsed the Republican in his campaign, a backing that was rejected by Team Trump. 

The Klan have listed the date of the parade as December 3, but have not yet specified a location or time. They have also said that "Trump's race united my people" on their official website. 

Trump's son Eric has come out strongly against this motion, making it clear that he and his father think "it's disgusting". 

He said: "These aren't good people. These are horrible people.

"My father's the first Republican who's said, 'Listen, what's happened to the African-American community is horrible and I'm going to take care of it'."
