Video Transcript

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: While we're denouncing, let me ask you about QAnon. It is this theory that Democrats are a satanic pedophile ring, and that you are the savior of that. Now, can you just once and for all state that that is completely not true?

DONALD TRUMP: So--

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: Can you disavow QAnon in its entirety?

DONALD TRUMP: I know nothing about QAnon.

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: I just told you.

DONALD TRUMP: I know very little-- you told me, but what you tell me doesn't necessarily make it fact. I hate to say that. I know nothing about it. I do know they are very much against pedophilia, they fight it very hard. But I know nothing about it.

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: They believe it is a satanic cult run by the state.

DONALD TRUMP: If you want me to study the subject-- I'll tell you what I do know about. I know about Antifa, and I know about the radical left, and I know how violent they are and how vicious they are. And I know how they are burning down cities run by Democrats, not run by Republicans.

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: Republican Senator Ben Sasse said, quote, "QAnon is nuts, and real leaders call conspiracy theories conspiracy theories." Why not just say it's crazy and not true?

DONALD TRUMP: And he may be right. I just don't know about QAnon.

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: You do know.

DONALD TRUMP: I don't know. No, I don't know. I don't know. You tell me all about it. Let's waste the whole show.
