Trump Finally Weighs in on White Supremacist Hate Rally, Says Nothing About White Supremacists

 
 

'Lets Come Together as One! Trump Urges

After it was shut down, President Donald Trump commented on the white supremacist hate rally in Charlottesville, Virginia that had turned violent quickly. Thousands of white supremacists, white nationalists, Nazis, Neo-Nazis, Neo-Confederates, and "alt-right" supporters have converged on the college town to protest the planned removal of a Confederate statute.

Trump, who got elected supposedly because of not being "politically correct," refused to take sides and refused to denounce the white supremacists - which follows a pattern. Trump on n national television during the campaign refused to denounce the KKK, claiming he was unaware of what they stood for and would have to do "research" into white supremacy groups before denouncing them.

"We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!" Trump tweeted.

He did not denounce white supremacism or any of the associated groups that came together to support the hate rally.

Minutes before President Trump weighed in, former President Bill Clinton posted this tweet:

The First Lady more than 30 minutes before Trump's tweet also posed a statement, one that denounced violence but was carefully created to not offend any particular side or show any personal beliefs, aside from opposing violence.

Trump's tweet echoes promises he made before his presidency. 

"Imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people, under one God, saluting one flag," Trump told supporters last September.
