Speaking at a press conference today, President Trump refused to condemn white nationalists or the KKK for their deadly terrorist acts in Charlottesville, VA.
Instead, Trump said he condemns hatred and bigotry on “many sides.”
“We’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia,” he began. “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides.”
But Trump then failed to mention the displays of white nationalism or Nazi symbols present in Charlottesville on Saturday.
“We have to heal the wounds of our country,” Trump said in conclusion to his remarks.
The POTUS then shockingly ignored a reporter’s question asking if he will disavow white nationalists who say they support him.
