Proud Boys Quickly Adopts President Trump’s Words as New Slogan
September 30, 2020
President Trump refused to condemn the radical far-right group, The Proud Boys, known for endorsing violence at protests. Trump was asked by debate moderator and Fox News journalist Chris Wallace if he was willing to denounce white supremacists, and former Vice President Joe Biden specifically named that group. Trump went on to say, “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by.” Members of the self-described, “pro-Western fraternal organization for men,” have started printing the phrase on t-shirts.
