The far-right group the Proud Boys celebrated Tuesday night after President Trump refused to denounce white supremacy and mentioned them during the first presidential debate.
When asked by debate moderator Chris Wallace if he’d denounce the violence from white supremacist groups, Trump replied: “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by! But I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about antifa and the left.”
The Proud Boys immediately shared a new logo online that included the phrase “stand back and stand by.”
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden responded on Twitter, sharing an image of Proud Boys praising the president’s remarks as well with the caption: “This. This is Donald Trump’s America.”
