Somehow we are once again hearing from every Democrat politician and every news source that Donald Trump refuses to denounce white supremacy. This delusion only holds true if you have no memory, and if the internet deletes all archives, because the fact is that Trump has repeatedly denounced white supremacy and all forms of hate groups.
But as usual, you don’t need to take my word for it. We go out of the way to provide links to thoroughly source articles. This time will be no different as we will insert the videos as we go along.
This started (again) with the obvious frustration during the first presidential debate between Trump and Biden. Moderator Chris Wallace drew on Trumps criticism of Obama for refusing to say “radical Islamic terrorism,” and put the question on the president to denounce white supremacy. While being asked, the president said “sure” and acknowledged that he would denounce white supremacy, but grew very aggravated at the hypocritical nature of ignoring the fact that it has been Antifa rioting and causing violence across the nation. Not white supremacists. It would certainly be frustrating to be put in such a position knowing full well you have already repeatedly done what was being asked.
As a result, the accusastions began swirling once again that President Trump “refuses to denounce” white supremacy.
Press Secretary Keyleigh McEnany was confronted with this issue, and has been criticized in her frustration to put it to rest. She provided direct quotes of President Trump as examples of his denouncement of white supremacy, but somehow this still was not enough to conclude that Trump and his administration do in fact denounce white supremacy.
As some of you may be telling yourself at this point, neither of these videos show him saying that white supremacy is a bad thing. Well, that’s because he had already done so. Most explicitly he did it after the tragic shooting in Charlottesville.
The same frustration was shown by the exact same allegations during the 2016 campaign trail. He expressed his frustration four years ago that he has repeatedly rejected racism and bigotry. And yet here we are again today.
… And again, in 2019, expressing his concern for the rise of any type of hate group, including white supremacy…
Is this enough? Can we call this evidence? Donald Trump has denounced white supremacy over and over again. Donald Trump isn’t the problem. Those on the extreme left actually want a racist white supremacist in office, because they could continue their projectionism and have ammunition to successfully win an election. They certainly can’t win on policy.
