President Donald Trump said Thursday in an interview that he condemned the Proud Boys, a militant group that supports him, after declining to directly condemn white supremacists during Tuesday’s presidential debate.

“I condemn the KKK, I condemn all white supremacists, I condemn the Proud Boys,” Trump said in an interview on Fox News, after insisting that he had long condemned such groups.
