CNN political analyst Van Jones tore into Donald Trump after the president’s highly controversial decision to repeatedly refuse to condemn white supremacy at the first 2020 general election debate.

“Number two, the president of the United States refused to condemn white supremacy,” he continued.

“Number three, the commander-in-chief refused to condemn white supremacy on the global stage — in front of my children, in front of everybody’s families — and he was given the opportunity multiple times to condemn white supremacy,” Jones said.

“That’s the only thing that happened tonight,” he concluded.

In 2020, the United States has been rocked by everything from a deadly pandemic and a brutal recession to civil unrest in a long list of cities to fears that violent conflicts will occur either on Election Day or after the election. Journalist Matthew Gault, in an article published by Vice this week, wonders if the political divisions in the United States run so deep that the country is headed for another civil war.

Describing the unrest that has occurred this year, Gault writes, "People are marching in the streets, aligned with two ideologically distinct factions.
