Loeffler, who also appeared with a white supremacist-linked pundit, claims “we just have to look at [Trump’s] words and his actions” after Trump refuses to denounce white supremacist groups
ATLANTA — Unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler likes to brag about how she’s “100%.” with Trump, but now they have something else new in common: refusing to directly denounce white supremacist groups.
Like Trump, Loeffler has also refused to condemn individuals with white supremacist ties. In addition to her strong support for Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has a history of bigoted and racist remarks, Loeffler has also appeared with and promoted Jack Posobeic, “a TV pundit associated with white supremacy and Nazism.” When asked by the AJC about his ties to white supremacists, Loeffler responded by refusing to denounce Posobiec or his extremist associations and instead “condemned the AJC for asking about it.”
Now, Loeffler is claiming that “we just have to look at [Trump’s] words and his actions” to prove he’s not racist — even as Trump still refuses to denounce white supremacist groups and instead told the far-right Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by” during last night’s debate.
“It’s shameful that a US Senator would refuse to directly and publicly condemn white supremacists — and even more shameful that the President has joined her,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Hatred should have no place in our politics, but instead Senator Kelly Loeffler and President Trump would rather pander to far-right extremists than stand up against bigotry.”
