Trump denies knowledge of the Proud Boys despite telling the far-right group to 'stand by'

Guardian, 01 Oct 2020
The president claimed to reporters 'I do not know who the Proud Boys are' after refusing to condemn white supremacists during the presidential debate in Cleveland on Tuesday night.

The extremist group has consistently been in the news in recent months, so it seems unlikely the president is not aware of them.

The claim of ignorance was reminiscent of Trump’s comments about the white supremacist David Duke during the 2016 campaign.
