Trump FINALLY Condemns ‘Evil’ White Supremacists – 48 Hours After Charlottesville Protest Killing

'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,'President Trump said Monday – two days after a deadly attack in Charlottesville, VirginiaPresident Donald Trump insisted on Monday that he and his administration forcefully denounce the ‘evil’ embodied by white supremacists and other bigoted hate groups whose weekend rally in Virginia left one woman dead and 20 others injured.

‘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 said at the White House.

‘We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our creator. We are equal under the law. And we are equal under our Constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.’charlotte-virginiaThe president also announced that the Department of Justice had opened a civil rights investigation into the weekend’s violence.

‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence. It has no place in America,’ he said.

‘As I have said many times before, no matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws. We all salute the same great flag. And we are all made by the same almighty God.’

Trump told reporters Friday in New Jersey that he was ‘going to have a pretty big press conference on Monday’ in the nation’s capital.

But that was before his attempt to condemn the white supremacist protest turned into a public relations disaster on Saturday, making Monday a day of explaining and losing precious political high ground.
