October 7, 2020 - Pence Defends Trump Against Claims He’s Associated with Neo-Nazis, Noting He Has Jewish Grandchildren

During the vice presidential debate, Harris calls out the Trump administration’s denial of racial inequality and bias, assuring viewers that she and Biden believe implicit bias exists and will work to combat it. Before that, Harris attacks Trump for refusing to condemn white supremacists. Pence pushes back, explaining: “Senator Harris conveniently omitted, after the President made comments about people on either side of the debate over monuments, he condemned the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists and has done so repeatedly.” Pence adds: “Your concern that he doesn’t condemn neo-Nazis — President Trump has Jewish grandchildren. His daughter and son-in-law are Jewish. This is a president who respects and cherishes all of the American people.” Pence goes on to criticize Harris’ own record as a district attorney and attorney general, arguing that she was responsible for a disproportionate level of prosecutions of African Americans.
