  • Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Trump denies knowledge of the Proud Boys despite telling the far-right group to ‘stand by'” – below is their description.

    The president claimed to reporters ‘I do not know who the Proud Boys are’ after refusing to condemn white supremacists during the presidential debate in Cleveland on Tuesday night. However, the extremist group have consistently been in the news in recent months, so it seems unlikely the president is not aware of who the Proud Boys are. The claim of ignorance was reminiscent of Trump’s comments about the white supremacist David Duke during the 2016 campaign Biden tells white supremacist groups to ‘cease and desist’ after Trump’s debate ’embarrassment’ – live Presidential debates format to be overhauled after calamity in Cleveland
