WATCH: Trump condemns white supremacy—media asks why he won't condemn white supremacy

Some media outlets are criticizing Trump for not condemning white supremacists, but the fact is that there is video evidence to show that he did so not only during Tuesday night’s debates, but also four years ago.


Media will not stop asking the President and his staff whether or not the President condemns white supremacy and white supremacist hate groups. This after Trump signed a resolution stating that his administration would prosecute the KKK as domestic terrorists. Press Secretary McEnany gave a detailed account of Trump's efforts to combat white supremacy, yet media continues to ask why he don't combat it or condemn it.

A White House correspondent asks if the President condemns white supremacy in all its forms. McEnany says yes, and gives quotes from the president as to his condemnation. That correspondent then says "just to clear it up, can you make a declarative statement that the president denounces it." She clears that up. Another White House correspondent then asks why the president won't denounce white supremacy.

John Roberts, the journalist who persisted in asking the question McEnany answered over and over, threw a fit on tv, defending his continuously asking the question that she answered multiple times.

Here's a compilation of Donald Trump condemning white supremacy and the KKK. The media keeps asking if he will disavow white supremacy. He keeps disavowing it, over and over again. Yet the media keeps asking why he won't disavow them.

Trump denounced white supremacy after the events of Charlottesville in 2019, and after mass shootings. Kellyanne Conway, press secretary at the time, reiterated that.

Media outlets persist criticizing Trump for not condemning white supremacists, but the fact is that there is video evidence to show that he did so not only during Tuesday night’s debates, but also four years ago, and directly to the same moderator who set him up last night.

The video shows clearly Trump disavowing the KKK and other white supremacists not just once in 2016, but twice.

Back in 2016, Trump can be seen on the video saying:

“I totally disavow the Klu Klux Klan. I totally disavow David Duke. I’ve been doing it now for about two weeks.”

“Take a look at my Twitter account.”

Then, on Tuesday night in the middle of the debates, Chris Wallace, the moderator of the debates, asks Trump yet again:

“Are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia groups…”

Trump immediately interjects, “Sure.”

Wallace goes on, “and to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities…”

Trump once again replies, “Sure.”

Wallace finishes his thought with “as we saw in Kenosha and as we’ve seen in Portland?”

Trump, on the heels of Wallace, states, “Sure, I’m willing to do that.”

During the debate, not once was the other presidential candidate, Joe Biden, asked the same or any similar question, nor was Trump’s response acknowledged by Wallace or Biden.
