Trump's refusal to disavow QAnon is part of his pattern of encouraging hate for political gain | NBC News - Oct. 16, 2020 |

By normalizing, accepting and repeating a conspiracy theory's core, false tenet as a fact and reason to sympathize with them, the president of the United States legitimized domestic terrorism and hatred -- and it's not the first time. This QAnon exchange came shortly after Trump refused to denounce white supremacy when asked at the first presidential debate. And then, when pointedly asked to disavow the Proud Boys -- another right-wing extremist group aligned with white supremacists that promotes "Western chauvinism" -- Trump instead issued a call to arms by encouraging the Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by."
