US President said Thursday evening that he condemned “all white supremacists” following uproar over his ambiguous comments during the first election debate against his Democratic opponent .

“I’ve said it many times, and let me be clear again, I condemn the KKK, I condemn all white supremacists, I condemn the Proud Boys,” told Fox News.

“I don’t know much about the Proud Boys, almost nothing, but I condemn that,” he said.

Instead Trump gave a shout-out to the male-only Proud Boys militia group by saying they should “stand back and stand by,” and that the real problem is “far-left” extremists.

The Proud Boys themselves celebrated Trump’s comments.

“Standing down and standing by sir,” the group said in a social media posting.
