QAnon is a conspiracy theory that alleges the US President is battling a cabal of elite Satan-worshipping paedophiles.
One Twitter user wrote: “This Trump town hall is a f***ing disaster for him.
“He just refused to denounce QAnon and now he’s having a meltdown.”
The interview host, Savannah Guthrie, asked President Trump to denounce the conspiracy theory.
She said: “QAnon is a theory that Democrats are a Satanic paedophile ring & you are their saviour.”
She asked Mr Trump to “once and for all” state that the theory is not true.
He replied: “I know nothing about QAnon.”
The host quickly responded: “I just told you.”
Mr Trump said: “You just told me but what you told 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 paedophilia.
“They fight it very hard but I know nothing about it.”
Ms Guthrie added: “They believe it is a Satanic cult run by the deep state.”
Mr Trump’s town hall meeting took place at the same time as Joe Biden’s own town hall meeting on a rival TV channel.
