Trump’s Charlottesville comments

Charlottesville comments by Donald J. Trump

On August 12th, 2017:

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides, it has been going on for a long time in our country — not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America.”

This was Trump’s initial reaction during a short statement from his private golf club in New Jersey to the civils unrests that resulted in death and injuries in Charlottesville.

Trump was criticized for not being hard enough to name the white supremacist as a problem, and for not condemning neo-nazis and other radicals.

“Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. “

This was somewhat forced to add, in a statement that the White House released later.

We are just sorry, that the so-called President of the free world, can’t distance himself from white supremacy, neo-nazi and other violent behaviour on the first good.
