Biden-Trump debateRepublicans in Congress said President Donald Trump should have directly denounced white supremacists at the first presidential debate Tuesday, when the president sidestepped a question on the issue during a chaotic and bruising two hours.

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, often a Trump critic, said Trump should have condemned white supremacists and told Capitol Hill reporters, "it was not a Lincoln-Douglas debate, that's for sure."

"I think he misspoke, I think he should correct it. If he doesn't correct it, I guess he didn't misspeak," said Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., the only Black Republican in the Senate.

Sen. Mike Rounds, R-S.D., said Trump “should have been very clear, and he should have made it very clear that there's no room for people on the far left or the far more far-right. When it comes to either an antifa or these white supremacist groups should have been very clear.”
