WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Saturday condemned violence that erupted between white nationalists and counter-demonstrators on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

 

"We must ALL be united & condemn all that hate stands for," Trump wrote in a Twitter message. "There is no place for this kind of violence in America."

 

Officials had approved the protest march in downtown Charlottesville but cancelled the event and declared a state of emergency after outbreaks of violence.

                       I know 4 year olds who can condemn hate.  I heard his response speech was tepid, and didn't focus on any group.  Rather like Rodney King saying, 'why can't we all get along?'  After Trump's flaccid response, he walked out without fielding any questions.  Right-wingers responded to Trump's response with, "Yay, he's still our guy!"  

 

                  There are soooooo many reasons Trump should be tossed out the exit door.  I wish I could say he's just ignorant and ineffectual, but in fact, he's much worse.......

What gets me  wondering about America. Is if it is the land of freedom of expression why do people always have to disrupt right wing protests? Do they not have the right to free speech also? They should be allowed their say. No one has to listen no one has to care what they say but they have the right to say it.If right wingers used violence to stop anything they would be the bad guys and go to jail. If right wing protests have violent thugs show up and destroy the protest it is ok. This is not the American way that America tries to say it is.Seems as though violence against right wingers is ok. Quite a double standard as I see it  speaking as an outsider.

It's a land of hypocrisy!

No, it's how the job market works in capitalistic society.  Can you get a job in your country with hate tattoos on your face?  A bad post (hate posts, drug abuse pics, etc.) in Facebook has cost people their jobs.

White supremacist terrorism in Charlottesville. Of course trump can't name it. That's his base.

 

 

 

" Trump’s refusal to condemn white supremacist violence, coming on the heels of his silence in the aftermath of last week’s mosque bombing in Minnesota, is just the latest affirmation of his fundamental immorality. The president’s racist, anti-Semitic, Muslim-hating acolytes heard the words Trump didn’t say on Saturday. They know they have an ally in the White House, a man who will abet anyone who abets his own hold on power."

Would it be so hard for trump to give a response like this? Apparently so.

Our totally unpresidential president. 

Yes, he won.

What a tragedy!

Quote

 

Donald Trump's incredibly unpresidential statement on Charlottesville

 
"Mr. President - we must call evil by its name," tweeted Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colorado. "These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism." Tweeted Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, another fellow Republican: "Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists."
