WATCH: Fox’s Kilmeade Says Trump “Missed Biggest Layup in History” by not Condemning White Supremacists

When Donald Trump was running for president, he was overwhelmingly supported by white supremacist groups. He even had the endorsement of former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke. Trump at first claimed that he didn’t know who Duke was, then disavowed the support.

After hate groups marched through the streets in Charlottesville, Virginia, Trump refused to disavow them, famously saying there were “very fine people on both sides.” So it should have come as a surprise to no one when Trump refused to condemn white supremacists during last night. By failing to do so, Fox’s Brian Kilmeade says, Trump missed a “big layup.”

Moderator Chris Wallace asked, “Are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down.” Trump answered,  “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by! But I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about antifa and the left.”

Referring to this moment from last night, Kilmeade told viewers, “Donald Trump ruined the biggest layup in the history of debates by not condemning white supremists. I don’t know if he didn’t hear it, but he’s gotta clarify that right away. … Why the president didn’t just knock it out of the park, I’m not sure.”
