Donald Trump defended neo-Nazis and white supremacists at an insane press conference at Trump Tower this afternoon.
“I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups. Not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch….You had a group on one side and the other, and they came at each other with clubs, and it was vicious and horrible. It was a horrible thing to watch. There is another side. There was a group on this side, you can call them the left. You have just called them the left, that came violently attacking the other group. You can say what you want. That’s the way it is….I think there’s blame on both sides. I have no doubt about it.”
Ex-KKK leader David Duke thanked Trump immediately after the press conference was over:
