The narrative promoted by the media and the Biden team is that President Trump has not condemned white supremacy.
President Trump and his team have responded with a video that demolishes this lie by showing the dozens of times President Trump has expressly condemned it.
According to Town Hall:
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s entire reason for getting into the race is based on a lie. The former vice president said the “moment I knew I had to run” was President Trump’s “very fine people on both sides” comment from 2017. Biden falsely claims the president was referring to neo-Nazis and white nationalists, which as Matt reported, is “just as big a myth as Russian collusion.” The entire transcript is available for anyone to see. Trump made clear, “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.” Nevertheless, Biden and vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris have been on the campaign trail falsely claiming he hasn’t denounced white supremacy yet.
“Donald Trump fails to condemn White supremacy, doesn’t believe that systemic racism is a problem, and won’t say that black lives matter,” Biden said at a campaign stop in Georgia this week.
“Joe Biden has never condemned the KKK but did praise a former KKK Exalted Cyclops as his ‘mentor,’ the ad description reads.
The Trump campaign has also made a point of highlighting Biden’s “history of racist comments” in a series of campaign ads directed toward the black community. One ad in particular uses the former vice president’s own words during his decades-long career as a politician.

The Daily Wire also reported on the Trump campaigns response:
President Donald Trump released a video on Tuesday debunking the false narrative promoted by the media and top Democrats that he has not condemned white supremacy and racism, despite the fact that he has repeatedly done so for years.
“The Trump campaign rolled out a nearly 5-minute-long video of the president, featuring video clips from as recently as this month, to his 2016 presidential campaign, and dating all the way back to an interview Trump gave to Matt Lauer in the early 2000s, where he denounced White supremacy and ‘disavowed’ White supremacist groups,” Fox News reported. “The video comes after Biden and Harris have criticized Trump, casting him as a racist and claiming he has not denounced White supremacy, and also comes as part of the Trump campaign’s final pitch to win over Black voters ahead of Election Day.”
