Trump Repeatedly Refuses to Disavow QAnon: “They Are Very Much Against Pedophilia”
“And I agree with that. I mean I do agree with that!”
About 10 minutes into President Trump’s town hall Thursday night in Miami, NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie asked him a fairly straightforward question about QAnon, the right-wing conspiracy which, as my colleague Ali Breland has explained, “postulates that President Donald Trump is on the verge of arresting a throng of liberal elites for facilitating and participating in a sprawling child sex ring.”
Trump has retweeted QAnon supporters in the past, praised a high-profile QAnon believer in her campaign for Congress, and just this week shared a Q-adjacent conspiracy that Osama bin Laden is still alive and Navy SEALs had killed a body double instead. (Read that last clause again.) When asked about QAnon in the past, Trump has demurred, saying, “I’ve heard these are people that love our country” but “I don’t know really anything about it other than they do supposedly like me.”
Trump refuses to answer key question about suspicious finances after Savannah Guthrie grilling
"The New York Times has obtained, it says, years of your tax returns among other things. It says you've had debts of approximately $421 million that you have personally guaranteed and that will come due in the next four years," Guthrie noted. "The question is on behalf of voters, who do you owe $421 million to?" Guthrie noted Trump could clear things up by releasing his tax returns, but Trump falsely claimed he could not do so while being audited.
President Donald Trump lashed out at NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie during NBC’s town hall meeting on Wednesday.
Trump complained about being asked whether he would denounce the white supremacists who support his campaign.
“You always do this,” Trump complained.
“You didn’t ask Joe Biden whether he denounces Antifa,” Trump said of the antifascists who oppose his white supremacist supporters.
