Donald Trump Says 'I Denounce White Supremacy. Ok?' | 22 Words

Donald Trump has just addressed the subject of white supremacy during his Miami town-hall forum this evening...

Donald Trump's Miami town-hall forum happened tonight...

And the President's response to Savannah Guthrie's questions about white supremacy have certainly raised some eyebrows. Keep on reading to see what our President had to say...

Now, this particular stage of the election run-up has been surrounded in a lot of controversy these last few weeks.

Following President Trump's coronavirus diagnosis, the whole debate process has been completely thrown up into the air.

Tonight's event was originally scheduled for October 9th...

But was hastily canceled over coronavirus fears.

Subsequently, today's date, October 15th, was selected for the second debate...

But it was established almost instantly that the debate was going to be a virtual one, with both candidates taking part in separate locations due to COVID fears.

However, President Trump wasn't too keen on this idea...

And he demanded that the debate be restored to its original, in-person format, before adding that he would refuse to take part in any virtual debate entirely... even though he was yet to provide a negative COVID test.

Meanwhile, the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, was putting together his own plan to appear in an ABC News town hall in Philadelphia...

Which was the very thing we watched this evening.

But, never one to miss out on an opportunity to attack his opponent, Trump decided to take part in NBC's Miami town hall event...

At the exact same time as Biden's ABC appearance.

Understandably, this caused quite a lot of anger...

And NBC has been criticized for agreeing to go ahead with Trump's forum which will force viewers to choose either one or the other to watch, rather than getting an equal share of both candidates.

So, tonight, we were treated to 2 separate town hall events...

Just on different channels from different parts of the country, with undecided voters watching in the audience. Yep, I told you things had strayed slightly from the norm.

Trump's NBC forum kicked off in Miami with Savannah Guthrie earlier this evening...

And it didn't take long at all for things to get heated.

Guthrie boldly pushed Trump on his retweets of conspiracy theories this week...

And this seemed to cause the President to snap, in which he sarcastically remarked to her as, "So cute."

People were not happy with this condescending and degrading comment...

And so soon into the event!

Trump needs to learn to keep his cool...

And people feel that this is his reaction to losing his campaign.

It hasn't put him in a good light...

How does he expect to gain more supporters when he speaks to a woman like this on live, national TV?

Trump needs to cool down tonight if he expects to come out on top...

And there's no doubt that Guthrie is playing hardball.

She then asked the President on the subject of white supremacy.

We all know that Trump came under fire in the last debate after he failed to denounce white supremacists and the Proud Boys so, of course, it was going to be brought up tonight.

Immediately, Trump was on the defense.

"I denounced white supremacy for years," Trump claimed, before complaining that Guthrie and other people in the media keep bringing up the topic.

Viewers weren't convinced of Trump's authenticity, however...

And as this Twitter user pointed out, getting him to say that was difficult.

But on the other hand...

Many of Trump's supporters were quick to defend him and they claimed he has always denounced white supremacy.

What do you really expect, Mr. President?
