    A white nationalist says he has recorded a robocall supporting Donald Trump for voters in Utah.

    NBC News has learned that the head of the American Freedom Party has prepared a robocall attacking Mitt Romney for Utah residents.

    Party head and white nationalist William Johnson told NBC News that the calls may go out as soon as 8 p.m. ET. Johnson is also planning on a robocall for Idaho and possibly other states. His group has targeted voters in Iowa, New Hampshire, Minnesota and Vermont.

    According to the transcript of the robocall, which was provided to NBC News, Johnson calls Romney and the GOP establishment “mean-spirited” who are trying to “protect big moneyed interests.” Johnson calls Trump “a populist” who “cares about the working man.”
