The first 2020 presidential debate happened. It was a very anticipated match for many and it was a yell fest to say the least. One particular part stood out from the rest however.
Trump was asked by the moderator – Chris Wallace of Fox News and former vice president Joe Biden to denounce white supremacy in which Trump replied: “Give me a name, who would you like me to condemn?”. Biden then says “The Proud Boys”, a well known racist domestic terrorist group. Trump then says “Proud Boys? Stand back and stand by”. Never denouncing them.
Soon afterwards alleged members of the Proud Boys took to social media and praise the president for his actions.
