The left and media claim President Donald Trump refused to denounce white supremacy.
The debate transcript tells a different story.

The facts (see the transcript):
1. Trump said "sure" (twice) when asked to condemn white supremacists.
2. Wallace introduced the "stand" language.
3. Biden brought up the "Proud Boys."
4. Biden then refused to condemn Antifa.https://t.co/XVJXTVAjkj

As Emily Jashinsky at The Federalist noted, you can have issues with how Trump handled the question.
That debate was garbage but this is the actual transcript of the white supremacy exchange. Trump didn't "refuse" to denounce white supremacy, as much of the media is now saying. Look at his first reply.
Sure, take issue with how he handled the q, but don't misinform people. pic.twitter.com/TIg2WSxKVj

After he said “sure” I think he should have expanded on the answer. But you cannot change the definition of “sure.” Chris Wallace asked Trump if he was willing to condemn white supremacy. Trump said “sure.”
Then Trump said, “Yes, I am willing to do it.”
Trump said “sure” and “yes.” Therefore he answered the question. Should he have gone further? Yes.
But do not misinform people about his answer. Saying “willing” does not mean Trump “refused” to condemn white supremacy.
With each passing day the M.S. Media hammers another nail in the coffin of Public Trust
stopped watching even the evening weather report. Most news gathered from blogs and independent networks: powerline, American Thinker, American Greatness, American Story, powerhouse new, dc dirty laundry, news buster(very good at exposing the filthy communist media), and can not forget the satire of Babylon Bee.
if one listened to the major network news, the topic and issues parrell every teleprompter reader all with in a 1-2 mn. interval.
Democrats desperately try to keep that “Trump is racist” dialogue open. To do so, they must lie consistently, something they are quite adept at. Pity Wallace didn’t ask Biden about his racist remarks, like segregation turning our schools into “racial jungles”. But, where the racism actually resides has to remain hidden.
