President Donald Trump on Wednesday
tried to walk back his refusal to outright condemn a far right fascist group during his debate with Democrat Joe Biden, but the inflammatory moment was far from the first time the president has failed to denounce white supremacists or has advanced racist ideas.
Trumps initial refusal to criticize the Proud Boys instead saying the group should stand back and stand by drew fierce blowback before he altered his message in a day-later effort to quell the firestorm.
I dont know who Proud Boys are. But whoever they are they have to stand down, let law enforcement do their work, Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a campaign stop in Minnesota. [ ]
And even after saying the Proud Boys should stand down, Trump went on to call out forces on the other end of the political spectrum and tried to attack Biden. It was an echo of the way he had blamed both sides for the 2017 violence between
white supremacists and anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Has Joe Biden ever used the “N” word? I want him asked point blank! Come on Tim Scott. Ask him!!
The media still hasnt realized that the only idiots that are buying their snake oil are the drooling morons who patronize them. And Im sure the media believe their own sputum as well.
And the next paragraph about Charlottesvilleliterally seconds after the fine people statement was denouncing the bad guys.
So...to the folks still spouting it, GFY. Read the transcripts. The entire transcripts.
Waiting for the so-called “news” media to ask Biden to denounce the rioting anarchists and Black Lives Matter.
Not holding my breath.
It does echo Charlottesville, in that he said one thing, and they purposefully claimed it was something else.
“but the inflammatory moment was far from the first time the president has failed to denounce white supremacists or has advanced racist ideas.”
“The vice president will be a woman of color” - Joe Biden
There was no “remark”.
This is just like the set up Stephanopoulos began by asking Romney if contraceptives could be banned.
Ironically, the Proud Boys disavowed the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville and banned any of their members who attended. They have been a multi-racial men’s organization from their founding.
Yeah, the proud boys are not “far-right”, “fascist”, “racist”, or “white supremacists”.
They held a joint press conference with Black Lives Matter today.
They do hate the fascist Antifa organizations because those groups are trying to destroy western civilization.
3 whores at AP spewing this BS. Those #s know what he meant. But those lying #s have a malicious agenda.
Rock on Gavin, and rock on Proud Boys.
