  • BBC News published this video item, entitled “Under-fire Trump seeks to qualify far-right remarks – BBC News” – below is their description.

    President Donald Trump has said a far-right group should “stand down” and let law enforcement do its work, after his refusal to explicitly condemn the group in a TV debate sparked a backlash. Mr Trump said “I don’t know who the Proud Boys are”, a day after urging them in the election debate with Joe Biden to “stand back and stand by”. Proud Boys members called his debate comments “historic” and an endorsement. Mr Biden said Mr Trump had “refused to disavow white supremacists”. The exchange came during the first of three televised debates between the two men ahead of the 3 November election. The debate descended into squabbling, bickering and insults, with US media describing it as chaotic, ugly and awful. The commission that regulates the debates said it would introduce new measures for the next two to “maintain order”. Mr Trump said they should get a new anchor and a smarter Democratic candidate. #BBCOS #BBCoutsideSource
