During the presidential debate, Donald Trump was asked by moderator Chris Wallace to publicly denounce white supremacist groups and militias, many of which are his biggest supporters. Instead of denouncing them, Trump lashed out at left-wing groups saying that they posed a bigger threat to the country, and name-dropped the white supremacist group “Proud Boys.”
“Sure, I’m willing to [tell them to stand down], but I would say almost everything I see is from the left-wing, not from the right-wing. I’m willing to do anything. I want to see peace,” Trump said.
Joe Biden urged Trump to publicly denounce the white supremacist groups, “Say it. Do it. Say it.”
