Goodness yes. Give a baby attention for bad behavior and that behavior increases. Nobody will change their mind at this point about the kind of man Trump is and that won't affect any more votes. Explain what you can do for us that he isn't. Shouldn't be that hard?

Trump condemns 'racist hate' and white supremacy but does not acknowledge his own rhetoric. President Donald Trump called on the nation to condemn racism and white supremacy in a speech on Monday following two mass shootings, but stopped short of acknowledging his own divisive and racist rhetoric.
"The shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto online, consumed by racist hate," Trump said in remarks from the White House. "In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy.
"These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul," Trump continued. Ref. CNN.
It is common practice of white supremacist groups to deny in public and continue their rhetoric in private. The members are told to blend in and pretend they are part of the social norm while secretly plotting other things.
