President Donald Trump said he denounced White supremacy tonight during a town hall on NBC.
“I denounced White supremacy. I denounced White supremacy for years but you always start off with the question, you didn’t ask Joe Biden whether or not he denounces Antifa,” Trump said. “I denounced White supremacy. I denounce Antifa and I denounce these people on the left that are burning down our cities, that are run by Democrats.”
During the first presidential debate, Trump had declined to condemn White supremacists for inciting violence at anti-police brutality demonstrations across the country, claiming instead that violence was coming from “the left wing.”
