Trump vs. Biden on Race

 "They were people protesting, very quietly, the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. People that were very fine people - on both sides. I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, OK?"
