Donald Trump refuses to denounce QAnon at NBC town hall

Romney in a statement on Friday slammed Trump after during a town hall event on Thursday, the president declined to denounce the false QAnon conspiracy theory when asked to do so by moderator Savannah Guthrie.

A combative Mr Trump, sparring with moderator Savannah Guthrie on NBC, refused to condemn the freakish conspiracy theory QAnon, reiterated his unsubstantiated assertion the 2020 election is rife with fraud, and questioned whether masks can help combat the spread of Covid-19. "Can you just once and for all just state that that is completely not true?"

Trump has repeatedly claimed he doesn't know much about QAnon, which was tagged by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a domestic terrorist threat in 2019.

"The President's willingness to denounce an absurd and risky conspiracy theory last night continues an alarming pattern", wrote Romney on Twitter before expanding his critical net to ensnare other groups. They fight it very hard.

The president went on to say that he "knows about Antifa and the radical left and I know how violent they are". "But I know nothing about it". But he bragged that "I understand they like me very much" in August, Axios reported, posting video of the remarks. Guthrie then mentioned that even Republican Sen.


The President was asked during the Town Hall about why he retweeted a conspiracy theory linked to a QAnon account that baselessly claimed Joe Biden had SEAL Team Six killed to cover up the "fake death of Osama bin Laden".

During the one-hour broadcast, Trump falsely claimed that 85% of people wearing masks catch the coronavirus, said he was unaware of whether he took a coronavirus test ahead of his debate with Joe Biden in late September, and did not deny that he's more than $400 million in debt - just wouldn't say to whom.

"That was a retweet", Trump said.

Guthrie pressed Trump bringing up the fact that he retweeted a baseless QAnon conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama had Navy SEALs killed over some odd plot involving an Osama bin Laden body double. "That was an opinion of somebody and that was a retweet". I hate to say that. "You're the president, not someone's insane uncle".
