Asked To Condemn White Supremacists, Trump Instead Urges Them To: ‘Stand Back And Stand By’





When asked to condemn far-right militias and white supremacist groups like Proud Boys at Tuesday night’s presidential debate, President Trump instead ordered them to, “stand back and standby.”

“Are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down…” Wallace asked.



“Sure, I’m willing to do it,” Trump interjected.

“Proud Boys stand back, stand by. But somebody’s got to do something about Antifa,” Trump added. “Antifa is bad. It’s a dangerous radical group and they’ll overthrow you [Mr Biden].”




Trump’s “stand by” instructions raised alarms on Twitter.
