During Thursday's town hall event, President Donald Trump refused to disavow the QAnon QAnon conspiracy theory. QAnon followers believe that Trump will save the world from a globalist cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles and cannibals controlled by the "deep state," including public figures such as Hillary Clinton, Tom Hanks and Pope Francis.

"I know nothing about QAnon. I do know they are very much against pedophilia," the president told NBC Town Hall moderator Savannah Guthrie.

Back in August, Trump voiced support for the QAnon movement, telling reporters that he appreciated their support for him and that "these are people that love our country."
