Global News published this video item, entitled “Trump says he doesn’t know who the Proud Boys are, asks them to “stand down”” – below is their description.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House on Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump said he does not “know who the Proud Boys are,” adding that “…whoever they are they have to stand down [and] let law enforcement do their work.” Trump had refused to directly condemn white supremacists during the first U.S. presidential debate Tuesday evening. Fox News journalist and debate moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump if he would condemn white supremacists during a segment focusing on race tensions in the U.S. However, when Wallace pressed Trump to directly condemn white supremacists, the president only named the Proud Boys, a far-right group. “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by,” he said, before shifting his focus to Antifa.
