Pat Buchanan is now a hero to Donald Trump.


Republican frontrunner Donald Trump praised Pat Buchanan on Twitter Saturday, a man he once called a neo-Nazi and a dangerous demagogue.

Now, Trump says, Buchanan was ahead of his time.

Flashback to 2000, when Trump briefly flirted with a run for the Reform Party’s presidential nomination. In that race, Trump sought to save the Reform Party from the possibility of a Buchanan nomination (Buchanan had also repeatedly sought the Republican nomination previously).

Trump took a parting shot at Buchanan when he declined to seek the presidency in 2000, calling him a neo-Nazi.

“The Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani,” Trump’s 2000 statement read. “This is not company I wish to keep.”

And now?
