During his Thursday town hall on NBC, Trump was asked by Savannah Guthrie whether he would condemn QAnon, which has been labeled as a potential domestic terror threat by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

One of the more heated interactions between moderator Savannah Guthrie and the president during his NBC town hall had to do with the conspiracy theory that accuses Democrat leaders of participating in a satanic child molestation and trafficking operation. "Now, can you just, once and for all, state that that is completely not true" -President Donald Trump: "So, I know you - yeah".

Trump has repeatedly claimed he doesn't know much about QAnon, which was tagged by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a domestic terrorist threat in 2019.

Trump repeatedly refused to denounce the unfounded conspiracy theory.

The two went back and forth over the issue and Trump said the only thing that was clear about QAnon was that they "are very much against paedophelia", which is something he supports. "But I know nothing about it".

I recently had a real hard time trying to buy Demon's Souls due to the egregious behavior of the PlayStation 3 store app. Moreover, the changes will be implemented on October 19th online, while smartphones will follow on October 28th.

The president initially answered that he didn't know what QAnon was, and then later praised them for being against pedophilia when pressed by Guthrie to denounce the believers of the conspiracy.

Guthrie hit back at the Republican candidate with: "I don't get that".

The President was asked during the Town Hall about why he retweeted a conspiracy theory linked to a QAnon account that baselessly claimed Joe Biden had SEAL Team Six killed to cover up the "fake death of Osama bin Laden".

The FBI in 2019 labelled the group a domestic terror threat, but on Thursday Trump claimed to "know nothing about QAnon".

Mr Trump's campaign and the Republican National Committee raised some $247.8m (€211m) in September, his campaign manager said on Twitter, well behind the $383m (€327m) haul of Mr Biden and the Democratic Party. That was a retweet - that was an opinion of somebody. "I do know they are very much against paedophilia, they fight it very hard, but I know nothing about it", Trump said. I'll put it out there. I hate to say that. "You're the president. You're not like someone's insane uncle who can just retweet whatever".
