President Trump issued a statement condemning violence and hate on Monday in a response to the chaos that happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. He has been standing and fighting against hate and violence for a long time now, but still the liberals are blaming him.
During the violent protest, one person was killed and other 19 were injured when a white supremacist in a car drove right through a group of counter-protesters.
While many attacked President Trump saying he is the one to blame for the chaos that happened Saturday, one user on Twitter shared a montage of Trump proving he has been standing against hateful ideologies and leaders for years now.
“I wish @POTUS @realDonaldTrump would just be clear on whether he denounces the KKK … I gotta do all the work for you,” said A.D. Whitman, who posted the video of Trump.
Trump also condemned the violence Monday during a brief statement at the White House.
“Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,” the president stated.
President Trump met with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Chris Wray, and announced that a federal investigation of the hateful event has been launched.
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence,” he stated. “It has no place in America.”
Trump took a moment to personally honor the woman who died, Heather Heyer, 32.
“Her death fills us with grief, and we send her family our thoughts, our prayers, and our love,” Trump stated.
He also mentioned the two police officers Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates – who lost their lives.
“These three fallen Americans embody the goodness and decency of our nation,” Trump said. “In times such as these, America has always shown its true character — responding to hate with love, division with unity and violence with an unwavering resolve for justice.”
Vice President Mike Pence, Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump also condemned the white supremacist groups.
