Biden stands on world stage and repeats debunked lie that Trump called neo-Nazis ‘good people’

President Joe Biden stood on a world stage Thursday and repeated the false claim that his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, claimed that neo-Nazis are “very good people” — par for the course for the 79-year-old president, he flubbed the actual words used.

Of course, Biden didn’t dare mention Trump’s name in repeating a claim that even the heavily biased “fact-checkers” have reluctantly debunked.

Participating in a press conference at NATO headquarters in Brussels, a reporter asked without mentioning Trump’s name a loaded question about “widespread concerns in Europe that a figure like your predecessor, maybe even your predecessor himself, might get elected president again” to suggest that this figure may undermine the NATO alliance.

“So, are there any steps, anything you’re trying to do and NATO is trying to do here, these days, to prevent what you’re trying to do becoming undone two years from now?” the reporter then asked,

“No, I — that’s not how I think of this. I’ve been dealing with foreign policy for longer than anybody that’s involved in this process right now. I have no concerns about the impact — I made a commitment when I ran this time. I wasn’t going to run again, and I mean that sincerely. I had no intention of running for president again and — until I saw those folks coming out of the fields in Virginia carrying torches and carrying Nazi banners and literally singing the same vile rhyme that they used in Germany in the early ‘20s — or ‘30s, I should say,” Biden said.

“And then, when the gentleman you mentioned was asked what he thought — and a young woman was killed, a protester — and he asked — was asked what he thought, he said, ‘There are very good people on both sides.’  And that’s when I decided I wasn’t going to be quiet any longer,” he added.

The incident in question was the August 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville in response to the city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

In speaking to reporters, Trump said “you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides,” before adding, “you had people — and 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? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.”

He was referring to those who oppose the white-washing of American history by applying today’s woke standards to events of the past, as seen in the removal of statues and other works of art. A movement that even swept up Founding Fathers like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, whom the left regularly smear as slave owners and actively works to have their names and likeness wiped from the public square.

In a recent interview with The Washington Examiner, Trump said he got a “bad rap” when it comes to dealing with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and disputed the claim that he undermined NATO by asking member nations to pay their fair share.

“I got billions and billions of dollars” for NATO, he said. “Now all that money is going against Russia, so I did that. I closed the pipeline. You know, the pipeline was closed, and Biden opened it. Plus, I did the biggest sanctions anybody’s ever done on Russia.”
