FLASHBACK: Chris Wallace Asked Trump to Disavow White Supremacy in 2016; Trump Did Then and He Did Now
President Donald Trump is under fire for allegedly not disavowing white supremacists, even though he did, and has done so frequently for many years.
“I totally disavow the Ku Klux Klan. I totally disavow David Duke. I’ve been doing it now for two weeks. You have to be, like, the 18th person to ask me this question,” Trump said in response to globalist Fox News propagandist Chris Wallace in March 2016.
Trump responded to Wallace in similar fashion in 2020, demanding to know specific groups to disavow before issuing a statement.
“It was very clear that question was talked about in the form of groups. Groups. I want to know which groups you’re talking about. You have to tell me which groups. Ultimately, it got to the Ku Klux Klan, which, obviously, I’m going to disavow,” he said.
Trump noted that his Tweets disavowing white supremacy and racism are not typically picked up by the fake news media, even though most of his other Tweets are.
“And, by the way, if you look at my Twitter account, almost immediately after the program, they were disavowed again. You know, it’s amazing, when I do something on Twitter, everybody picks it up. It goes all over the place. But when I did this one, nobody ever picks it up,” Trump said.
Wallace recycled the same line of questioning during the debates over four years later in order to paint President Trump as an enabler of white supremacy.
“Are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia groups?” Wallace asked Trump.
“Sure,” Trump interjected.
“And to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities?” Wallace added.
“Sure,” Trump said again.
“As we saw in Kenosha, and as we’ve seen in Portland,” Wallace butted in to say.
“Sure, I’m willing to do that,” Trump said.
The record is clear. President Trump has disavowed white supremacy and denounced white nationalists over and over again. But that doesn’t stop the deranged Left from claiming the exact opposite anyway.
“Tonight, he once again showed why a majority of Jewish voters say that Jews will be less safe if Trump is re-elected. He doesn’t just enable white supremacy, it’s his platform” https://t.co/kB3t82ZCSm

Trump is a racist who supports white supremacy and white supremacists. That’s bad enough. But the worst part is he’s standing by these people, ready to incite them to violence to help steal the election, hold onto power and save his own skin.

Reading about how worried the GOP is that Trump won’t renounce racism because it could cost them votes. How about being worried that the president of your party is an out-and-out racist lover of white supremacy? #biden2020

A little odd how the media is freaking out because Trump wouldn't condemn white supremacy. But it's something they've given him a pass on for years. Central Park 5, Obama's birth certificate, kids in cages, etc. They shrugged all of it off and moved on.

White supremacy is the new Russian collusion – a canard floated out there to get the public’s minds off of the orgy of destruction across America caused by left-wing terrorists directly enabled by the Democrat Party and their media partners.
