The guy Donald Trump says endorsed him to prove he's not a racist denies endorsing him

Oops.

Earlier today, GOP nominee Donald Trump touted the endorsement of boxing promoter Don King:

Except, Don King denies it:

From the New York Daily News:

When it comes to endorsing Donald Trump, boxing promoter Don King is staying in a neutral corner.

King shot down the GOP presidential candidate’s tweeted claim that the spiky-haired businessman was officially backing his White House run.

“No,” King told the Daily News at the funeral for Muhammad Ali. “I’m endorsing the people. I’m not a Republican or a Democrat, I’m a Republicrat, and I go with the will of the people. The only reason Trump exists is because of the will of the people.”

Trump even touted King’s endorsement earlier today to prove he’s not a racist:

An excerpt from the interview Trump gave to the Washington Post where the GOP nominee:

Well, I am not a racist, in fact, I am the least racist person that you’ve ever encountered. I’ll give you an example. It’s funny, I just got this, it was just sent to me by Don King. Now, Don knows more about race than anybody. He owns this newspaper, you know –Don’s made a lot of money. He just sent this to me, look at this.

He handed me a copy of the latest edition of the Call & Post, a black weekly based in Cleveland that King owns. On the back of the paper was a full-page announcement endorsing Trump for president and Bernie Sanders for vice president.

“Isn’t that funny?” Trump continued. “You know, Don endorsed me. You wanna take that back with you? You know, this could be a story, it just came out. He just delivered it to my office. But isn’t that funny? This is Don King. Now, Don King knows racism probably better than anybody. He’s not endorsing a racist, okay? Do you want to use it? You can have the story, it just came out. I just got it 10 minutes ago, I don’t know. Whatever.”
