Trump Denounces White Supremacy '38 Times' in New Campaign Video - WATCH
The 5-minute-long video features clips from Trump's 2016 presidential campaign
A new video released by the Trump campaign showed President Donald Trump denouncing white supremacy more than three dozen times.
The video comes as Democratic rival Joe Biden and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris continue to claim the president has failed to denounce white supremacy.
The 5-minute-long video features clips from Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and also a recent clip showing Trump denouncing white supremacy and “disavowed” white supremacist groups.
The news comes as Biden and Harris tried to cast Trump as a racist on their campaign trail.
“President Trump wants to prosecute the KKK as a terrorist organization and has condemned white supremacy at least 38 times. 38 times!” a senior Trump campaign official said.
“The Biden campaign continues to sow division and inflame racial tension by spreading this false narrative,” the Trump campaign official added.
“Enough is enough.”
He called Biden's 'Trump's a racist' narrative as “dead issue” and said that “anyone who continues to ask about it is using a question to disguise their accusations and smear the president.”
The issue famously came up in the first presidential debate.
When asked, Trump responded:
“Sure, I’m willing to do that, but I would say almost everything I see is from the left-wing, not the right-wing. I am willing to do anything. I want to see peace.”
“Who do you want me to condemn?” Trump said. "What do you want to call them? Give me a name.”
Biden interrupted and said: "Proud Boys.”
“Proud Boys, stand back and stand by," Trump said.
"But I’ll tell you what, I'll tell you what, somebody has got to do something about Antifa and the left. Because this is not a right-wing problem. This is a left-wing problem.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated The Proud Boys as a hate group.
In the debate, Biden called the violent far-left group “an idea, not an organization.”
Trump fired back, saying, “Oh, you’ve got to be kidding.”
“When a bat hits you over the head, that's not an idea,” Trump said.
“Antifa is bad.”
During a town hall earlier this month, Trump was asked to clarify his remarks during the first presidential debate.
“I denounce white supremacy, okay,” Trump said.
“I denounce white supremacy, I have, for years.”
“You didn’t ask Joe Biden if he denounces Antifa.”
The president added:
“I denounce White supremacy, and you want to know something, I denounce Antifa.”
Earlier this month, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh said Trump had denounced white supremacy more than any president in history.
“He has condemned white supremacy more than any president in modern history,” McEnany said.
.@PressSec: Funny the media goes haywire about interrupting in the debates and then chooses to pursue that very same tactic themselves. This is a White House Briefing, You ask a question and you give me time to answer." pic.twitter.com/WzQdgIQJ2i— Benny (@bennyjohnson) October 1, 2020
