BIDEN: “It says about the Poor Boys, the last time we were on a stage here, he said: I told them to stand down and be ready. Come on. This guy has a dog whistle as big as a fog horn. “
THE FACTS: That’s not exactly what Trump said and that’s not the name of the neo-fascist group.
During the latest debate, on September 29, Trump was asked whether he would condemn white supremacists and militia groups that have come forward in some protests in the United States. He said, “Give me a name,” and Biden chimed in by saying, “Proud Boys,” a reference to the far-right extremist group that has come forward at protests in the Pacific Northwest.
“Proud guys, stand back and wait,” Trump said. He did not tell them to “be prepared”, although it is debatable whether there is a material difference.
