President Donald Trump refused to condemn right-wing extremist groups when put on the spot during a segment about Black Lives Matter protests during the first presidential debate.

"I would say almost everything I see is from the left wing, not from the right wing. I'm willing to do anything, I want to see peace," Trump said in Cleveland.

"Well, then do it sir," Fox News moderator Chris Wallace replied, giving the president an ample opening to disavow such violent militias.

"Who would you like me to condemn? The Proud Boys? Stand back and stand by. But I'll tell you what, I'll tell you what. Somebody's gotta do something about antifa and the left, because this is not a right-wing problem, this is a left-wing problem," Trump said.
