US President Donald Trump refused to denounce American white supremacy, saying the real threat is the radical left wing.
An organiser of the Proud Boys, a well-known supremacist group, celebrated Trump's comments in the debate with rival presidential candidate Joe Biden.
He writes on social media that Trump told them to "stand by" because he needs someone to deal with Antifa.
He goes on to say: "We're ready."
Jack Kingston, a surrogate for Trump and a former US congressman from the state of Georgia, talks to Al Jazeera.
