Trump dodges white supremacy

US President Donald Trump did not directly condemn the ideology of white racism during a televised debate with his main electoral competitor Joe Biden. The video of the debate with the Russian voice acting was published on the YouTube channel “Present Time”.

When debate moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump if he was prepared to condemn white supremacists and the Antifa left and urge them to stop inciting violence in cities, the American president replied that he could do it, but he himself mainly sees violence “from the left. “.

“Everything unpleasant on the left, not on the right. I am ready to do whatever is necessary. Who do you want me to stigmatize? Proud Guys” stop and wait for the command. I’ll tell you this: you need to do something with Antifa and left-wing radicals, because the problems are not on the right, but on the left, “he said.

He also noted that Antifa is a dangerous leftist group for everyone.

White supremacism or white supremacy is one of the racist concepts based on the opinion that white people are superior to other people in terms of racial characteristics. Representatives of this movement are associated with the pogroms that began in the United States after the death of African American George Floyd. His death led to massive protests in the United States and beyond.

In particular, the Minneapolis police claim that the actions of a man known as the “Man with an umbrella” became a catalyst for massive violence in the city, writes the BBC. This unknown person smashed the store, which was later set on fire. The police believe that he is associated with the group “Aryan Cowboys”, which are supporters of the theory of white supremacy.
