Peter Navarro Claims It Was Actually Chris Wallace’s Fault That Trump Told the Proud Boys to ‘Stand By’

Team Trump had their hands full on Wednesday morning as they were tasked with the unenviable job of cleaning up the president’s outright refusal to disavow white supremacists and far-right extremism. The results were, shall we say… lacking.

“When [Wallace] asked the president the question about that, the president said, ‘Of course,’ he started to say, of course he would denounce that, and Wallace cut him off,” Navarro continued. “So I’m not—I think the president has made it clear that he wants no part of that kind of stuff, what the president also made clear, I think it is a good distinction between Joe Biden and the president is that the president is for law and order.”

The MSNBC anchor jumped in again, noting that “people have ears” and they heard what Trump said, adding that when he was specifically asked about the Proud Boys he didn’t denounce them.
