Trump Dodges QAnon Conspiracy Theory Question

President Donald Trump dodged questions about whether he supported the QAnon conspiracy theory during a White House briefing on Friday.

Trump was asked about his support for Marjorie Taylor Greene, who was mocked as a supporter of QAnon conspiracies and denounced for videos deemed racist by fellow Republicans.

Unofficial election returns showed Greene winning by a wide margin in her Tuesday primary runoff with John Cowan — a neurosurgeon endorsed by several Georgia GOP congressmen, some who openly denounced Greene.

“Congratulations to future Republican Star Marjorie Taylor Greene on a big Congressional primary win in Georgia against a very tough and smart opponent,” Trump tweeted. “Marjorie is strong on everything and never gives up – a real WINNER!”

Trump did not directly answer questions about whether he agrees with Greene that the conspiracy theory should be “looked into.”

The president’s praise for Greene marked a direct contrast to the condemnation from Republican lawmakers during the primary campaign.
