Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, said Republican candidate for President "is the only member who has stood in front of the Jewish community and said, 'I don't want your money.'"
 
During his annual Savoir's Day sermon, Farrakhan made it clear that his statement was not an endorsement.
 
"Any time a man can say to those who control the politics of America, 'I don’t want your money,' that means you can't control me," he said. "And they can’t afford to give up control of the presidents of the United States."
 
Trump told a group of Jewish Republicans in December that he does not expect the Jewish vote, even though he will support Israel. "I'll be the best guy for Israel," Trump said. "I'm a negotiator like you folks. Is there anyone in this room who doesn't negotiate deals? ...Probably more than any room I've ever spoken."
 
The Anti-Defamation League, which reports anti-Semetic attacks, said Farrakhan is a noteable figure "on the extremist scene" for over 30 years. The organization said Farrakhan alleges that Jewish people were responsible for the slave trade, 9/11, and they conspire to control the government, entertainment industry and media.
 
Farrakhan, 82, said at the sermon held at the Nation of Islam's Mosque Maryam in Chicago that he does not plan to speak soon, but did not explain the reason. The Anti-Defamation League said Farrakhan has missed some key events recently due to his ailing health.
