President Trump has finally condemned white supremacists and labelled them “evil”. President Donald Trump said 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.
The white supremacists rally was ostensibly to protest the removal of a Confederate statue in Charlottesville. Trump said:
‘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.’
