In a new Trump campaign ad, the president disavows white supremacy, white supremacist groups, and other notoriously violent groups and those who cite white supremacist ideologies 38 times.
The video is cut to show dozens of instances where Trump—throughout his 2016 presidential election campaign, the four years he has spent as the president, and most recently his 2020 re-election effort—repeatedly condemning the group and their rhetoric.
“President Trump wants to prosecute the KKK as a terrorist organization and has condemned White supremacy at least 38 times. 38 times!” the Trump campaign said, sharing the video.
“The Biden campaign continues to sow division and inflame racial tension by spreading this false narrative,” it added. “Enough is enough.”
BizPac Review reports:
The video began with Trump’s recent townhall with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie in which he doubled down on the issue when asked to clarify what he had already asserted during his debate with Biden.
“I denounce White supremacy, okay,” Trump said during that townhall. “I denounce White supremacy, I have, for years.”
“You didn’t ask Joe Biden if he denounces Antifa,” he said at one point. “I denounce White supremacy, and you want to know something, I denounce Antifa.”
The president has been falsely attacked on his stance toward white supremacy going back to 2017 when white nationalists and counter-protesters broke out into violence in Charlottesville, Va. Trump said that there were good people on “both sides” and has been repeatedly bashed by critics who claim he defended the group.
Trump locked horns with Biden over the topic at the first presidential debate when Fox News anchor Chris Wallace asked him to “denounce white supremacists and militia groups.”

“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,” Trump responded.
President Trump has consistently and totally disavowed white supremacy and white supremacist groups throughout his brief political career.
His Democratic opponents and their allies in mainstream media who say the opposite are pushing a narrative and are ignoring the facts—so the Trump campaign is fighting back.
