It turns out that Donald Trump is not the only one benefiting from his racially-fueled success in the GOP race these days; white supremacist organizations online are booming as well.

After Trump made his recent Muslim-banning comments, traffic to white supremacist website Stormfront blew up so much that they had to upgrade their server size. Sites like Stormfront whose slogan is “White Pride Worldwide,” report that when Trump says horrible things, their traffic goes up 30 to 40 percent.

It’s disgusting that Donald Trump continues to pander to these hate groups. When white supremacists benefit from your hate speech, shouldn’t that be a sign that you’ve gone too far?
