CNN Critical of Trump’s Disavowal of Alt-Right, a One-Day-Later Response is Too Late

Read the section from the CNN article [1], which asks why Donald Trump didn’t disavow the alt-right sooner, for yourself and see if it’s not biased as far as waiting to give a reasonable response:

A Trump transition spokesman released a short media statement Monday evening, but it took Trump until Tuesday to publicly disavow the group in his own words. And it came only when pressed in a meeting with New York Times reporters, editors and executives,
Of course I disavow and condemn them [2],” Trump said when asked about the group.
But Oren Segal, director of the Anti-Defamation League, says Trump needed to do it sooner.
