Trump: ‘I Don’t Know Who the Proud Boys Are’

The comments came after Trump on Tuesday told the group to ‘stand back and stand by’ and refused to issue a blanket condemnation of white supremacist organizations.PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP on Wednesday denied any knowledge of the violent far-right Proud Boys just hours after he directed the group to “stand back and stand by” when pressed to condemn white supremacist organizations during Tuesday night’s presidential debate.

“I don’t know who the Proud Boys are. You’ll have to give me a definition because I really don’t know who they are. I can only say they have to stand down and let law enforcement do their work,” Trump told reporters at the White House.
The president then echoed his comments from Tuesday night, insisting that the “real problem” is antifa, the broad, far-left militant anti-facist movement.
