Trump signs resolution condemning bigotry and violence in Charlottesville

Source: Politico




By CRISTIANO LIMA 09/14/2017 10:05 PM EDT

President Donald Trump on Thursday signed a congressional joint resolution condemning the violence of neo-Nazis and white supremacists during a rally in Virginia last month, despite his equivocating on the matter during a meeting the day before with the Senate's only black Republican.

“As Americans, we condemn the recent violence in Charlottesville and oppose hatred, bigotry, and racism in all forms,” Trump said in a statement issued by the office of the press secretary late Thursday.

He added: “No matter the color of our skin or our ethnic heritage, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.”

Yet while recounting his Oval Office meeting with Sen. Tim Scott (R.-S.C.), an African-American leader with whom he discussed race relations and the Charlottesville events, the president on Thursday reverted to rhetoric that seemingly spread the blame for the violence to both sides.

7. he created the

 

dynamic for the violence...as everyone here knows and says...window dressing. All rational thinking human beings with an intact conscience know it also. His 18% base of spineless cowards will get the message that he really was forced to do this for world and national media consumption, but more racism and bigotry WILL be forthcoming and encouraged by this white racist calling himself potus.......god I hate the lies and degradation this clown and his administration has brought to the stage.

10. OK, he signed.

Is he also going to issues a signing statement saying Anti-fa is just as bad (as Nazis and KKK)?

11. He already did the same day

 

“I think especially in light of the advent of Antifa, if you look at what’s going on there, you have some pretty bad dudes on the other side also, and essentially that’s what I said,”
