48 Hours Late Trump Finally Denounces “The KKK, Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, And Other Hate Groups”

 

President Trump condemned white supremacists, the KKK and neo-Nazis after two days of mounting pressure for not singling out the hate groups for the violence in Charlottesville, Va.

“Racism is evil,” Trump said during an address at the White House on Monday. “And those that cause violence in its name are criminals and dogs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

Trump condemned the attack on a crowd of people protesting the white nationalist rally in the Virginia on Saturday. Republicans and Democrats slammed Trump for nearly 48 hours after he neglected to rebuke the hate groups in his first speech on the attack on Saturday.

In that speech, and on Monday, he called for unity and love among all Americans. “And as I have said many times before, no matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws,” he said. – via the New York Daily News

 

It was a very moving speech. 
It moved me away from the screen.
