Tapper: "Will you condemn David Duke and say that you don't want his vote or that of other white supremacists in this election?"
Trump: "Well just so you understand, I don't know anything about David Duke, okay. I don't know anything about what you're even talking about with, uh, white supremacy or white supremacists. So, I don't know, I mean, I don't know if he endorsed me or what's going on, because, you know, I know nothing about David Duke, I know nothing about white supremacists, and, so, when you're asking me a question that I'm supposed to be talking about people that I know nothing about..."
Tapper: "But I guess the question from the Anti-Defamation League is, even if you don't know about their endorsement, there are these groups and individuals endorsing you, would you just say, unequivocally, that you condemn them and don't want their support?"
Trump: "Well I have to look at the group, I mean, I don't know what group you're talking about. You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about, I'd have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them, and certainly I will disavow if I thought there was something wrong."
Tapper [crosstalk]: "The Ku Klux Klan...?"
Trump: "But you may have groups in there that are totally fine and that would be unfair. So give me a list of the groups and I'd let you know."
Tapper: "Okay, I mean, I'm just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here, but..."
Trump: "I don't know... Honestly, I don't know David Duke. I don't believe I've ever met him, I'm pretty sure I didn't meet him, and I just don't know anything about him."
