Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that he knows nothing about the white supremacist groups that have supported him and some of which the real estate mogul himself has retweeted on Twitter.

CNN’s “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper asked Trump how he expected to win the general election with the groups’ support.

“Well, that, I know nothing about,” Trump said. “I mean, I don’t know about retweeting. I mean, you retweet somebody, and turns out to be a white supremacist. I know nothing about these groups that are supporting me.”
