President Donald Trump on Thursday clearly condemned white supremacists, the Proud Boys, and other hate groups like the terrorist wing of the Democratic Party, the Ku Klux Klan. Trump has never supported hate groups of any kind, but our media and the leadership of the Democratic Party have always played the race card with him, since the day he came down the escalator to announce he was running on June 16, 2015.
During a phone interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday night time, the president, who found afterward that he tested positive for coronavirus, killed any notions that he somehow endorses or turns a blind eye to racial hate groups
“I’ve said it many times, and let me be clear again,” he told Hannity. “I condemn the KKK. I condemn all white supremacists. I condemn the Proud Boys.”
Trump added, “I don’t know much about the Proud Boys, almost nothing, but I condemn that.”
“But he should condemn also ANTIFA. ANTIFA’s a horrible group of people,” he added, referring to his repeated calls for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to call out ANTIFA. “They kill people. … They’re causing insurrection, they’re causing riots. [Biden] doesn’t wanna do that. But the press doesn’t go after him, and that’s a really bad group of people. But I condemn them — and if I say it 100 times, it won’t be enough because of fake news.”
The president received criticism after people said he wasn’t clear enough about his condemnation during Tuesday night’s presidential debate. I don’t think these clowns would ever admit Trump condemned the groups enough. He has condemned the hate groups more than any other past president or presidential candidate. This is nothing more than the leftist media throwing another baseless attack at the president.
Thanks to Grabien, one of the greatest supercut organizations out there, here’s a montage of times that Donald Trump has condemned hate groups like the KKK, neo Nazis, white nationalists and alike.
Earlier on Thursday, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also took the media to task over its failure to condemn ANTIFA violence.
In a responding statement, McEnany said, “The president, specifically, verbatim, was asked: ‘White supremacy — do you denounce them?’ To which he responded, ‘I have always denounced any form of that.’ Those are the facts.”
During the Hannity interview Trump lashed out at Fox News correspondent John Roberts, who demanded that McEnany provide a “declarative statement” on the president’s remarks at the debate.
“She was abused by John Roberts. Fox is a much different place than it used to be, Sean,” Trump said.
He later added, “I watched John Roberts screaming at Kayleigh. Kayleigh was so wonderful the way she handled it. But I watched him screaming, and his wife — John’s wife — was saying, ‘What are you doing?’ Because yesterday I made a statement that was, according to most, it was a perfect statement. But I’ve said it so many times, even beyond that.”
After McEnany read off past quotes from Trump condemning the hate groups over the years, Roberts continued to badger her with an asinine argument that what the president said in the long or recent past didn’t matter, he wanted her to confirm that Trump still condemns the hate groups. Trump could have said it five minutes prior, and Roberts would have asked if Trump’s opinion changed since then. This is how Trump gets treated by the media compared to the softball questions given to Biden, and that’s when Biden actually takes a question, which is extremely rare.
McEnany during that press briefing pointed out that Trump has, “denounced [white supremacy] more than any other president in modern history.”
“And in fact, something else lost upon the media is the absolutely turning of a blind eye to ANTIFA. Carrying the water for the Democrats, the media apparently agrees with Jerry Nadler that ANTIFA violence is a myth,” she said.
She then went on to cite examples when Democrats had obvious opportunities to publicly condemn ANTIFA, and pointed out various crimes and assaults perpetrated by those who claim to support ANTIFA.
“Ideas do not target police officers, ideas do not burn down buildings, ideas do not kill innocent Americans, organizations do,” she said. “And Democrats should condemn the shameful group the same manner President Trump continues to condemn white supremacy,” she said and then ended the briefing and left the stage.
