Tuesday night the first of three scheduled presidential debates took place in Cleveland, OH, the debates have been highly anticipated and garnered much attention. During last night's first debate, Trump was asked to on-air condemn white supremacist groups, in which he sidestepped. As President Trump struggled to figure out which group to condemn, Biden tossed out the Proud Boys for instance to which Trump spoke on, “Proud Boys — Stand back, stand by, but I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the left because this is not a right-wing problem..... This is a left-wing problem."
Trump's soft condemnation of the Proud Boys surely was one of the night's highlights. CBS' Gayle King later discussed the segment with Donald Trump Jr. who excused it with a simple "misspeak," but stated his father was "more than happy" to condemn white supremacists. "I don't know if that was a misspeak, but he was talking about having them stand down."
