Washington (CNN) The leader of the Proud Boys, a far-right group thrust into the spotlight earlier this week during the presidential debate, is also the leader of the grassroots group Latinos for Trump.

Enrique Tarrio told CNN on Thursday that there are two Latinos for Trump movements -- one is run by the campaign, while the other is a grassroots movement started in 2016.

News of Tarrio's tie to the grassroots movement supporting the President comes days after President Donald Trump refused to disavow White supremacists during Tuesday's presidential debate, instead using ​his allotted time to blame violence on ​what he called "antifa and the left​" and to tell the Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by." The day after the debate, Trump claimed he had no idea who the Proud Boys were.
