Mike Bost statement on Charlottesville violence

They clashed with counter-protesters early in the day, resulting in the rally being declared an "unlawful assembly" by police, before the worst violence occurred when a auto plowed into a group of counter-protesters.

Trump's Monday press conference appeared to be the result of mounting pressure for the president to specifically condemn white supremacy - and the various hate groups in the country who perpetuate it in its most bald-faced form - by name. It has no place in America.

The text of President Donald Trump's statement Monday on the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, as transcribed and provided by the White House. "There was violence between protesters and counterprotesters today".

The despicable thugs who showed up to march in Charlottesville, including none other than David Duke, were only too happy to align themselves with the current president.

"I think it's really, really important that all of us, all of us every day people with our every day voices, but also those of us who are lucky enough to have a microphone or a megaphone, are continuing to speak out for what makes this community work". Racism, white supremacism, and the KKK go against the entire American ideal that we are all created equal.

Congressman Bill Pascrell called a news conference to criticize Trump. "I'm surprised he said anything at all".

The president has long had a following among white supremacist groups attracted to his nationalist rhetoric on immigration and other hot-button issues. So, he touts his unrelated accomplishments before he gets to what he should have said two days earlier.

Mr Trump also said the "Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists" were "repugnant" to "everything Americans hold dear".

Donald Trump was accused of spreading his own "fake news" by a reporter in a fiery exchange over the Charlottesville carnage yesterday.

"Congressman Faso condemns these violent demonstrations in the strongest possible terms", Lange said. "And they are reinforced when the president fair to explicitly condemn their beliefs and acts", he said.

"For the first time in American history the president of the United States is an accomplice to terrorism", Goldstein said. The legislation was in direct response to a large number of bomb threats against Jewish community centers in the state and across the country.

Trump's follow-up remarks followed the resignation of Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier from Trump's American Manufacturing Council over his initial response to the events in Charlottesville.

Unless you've been hiding under your bed - which is a strategy I'm seriously considering - you know that there was a pretty massive riot in Charlottesville, which led to at least one death (although some outlets are saying three because a police helicopter crashed at the same time) and a whole bunch of injuries. "My prayer is that our nation will come together".
