President Trump Denounces White Supremacy LOUDLY in 2017


Recommended Posts

 

Read President Trump's Remarks Condemning White Supremacists

 
AUGUST 14, 2017 1:06 PM EDT

President Trump condemned the violent attack on a crowd of counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Va., that left one dead and 19 injured Saturday.

Speaking from the Diplomatic Reception Room in the White House Monday afternoon, Trump said plainly that “racism is evil” and that members of the Ku Klux Klan, neo Nazis and white supremacists are “repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

“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,” he said.

Read his complete remarks.

We are renegotiating trade deals and making them good for the American worker and it’s about time. Our economy is now strong. The stock market continues to hit record highs. Unemployment is at a 16-year low and businesses are more optimistic than ever before. Companies are moving back to the United States and bringing many thousands of jobs with them. We have already created over 1 million jobs since I took office. We will be discussing economic issues in greater detail later this afternoon, but based on the events that took place in Charlottesville over the weekend, I would like to provide the nation with an update on the ongoing federal response to the horrific attack and violence that was witnessed by everyone.

I just met with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Department of Justice has opened a civil rights investigation into the deadly car attack that killed one innocent American and wounded 20 others. To anyone who acted criminally in this weekend’s racist violence, you will be held fully accountable. Justice will be delivered. As I said on Saturday, we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence. It has no place in America. And 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.

We must love each other, show affection for each other and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry and violence. We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

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.

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. Two days ago, a young American woman, Heather Heyer, was tragically killed. Her death fills us with grief and we send her family our thoughts, our prayers and our love. We also mourn the two Virginia state troopers who died in service to their community, their commonwealth and their country.

Troopers Jay Cullen and Berke Bates exemplify the very best of America, and our hearts go out to their family, their friends and every member of American law enforcement. These three fallen Americans embody the goodness and decency of our nation.

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.

As a candidate, I promised to restore law and order to our country, and our federal law enforcement agencies are following through on that pledge.

We will spare no resource in fighting so that every American child can grow up free from violence and fear. We will defend and protect the sacred rights of all Americans, and we will work together so that every citizen in this blessed land is free to follow their dreams in their hearts and to express the love and joy in their souls. Thank you, God bless you and God bless America. Thank you very much.

Frankly, I am surprised he hasn't yet repudiated what he said in the debate. 

You know he has gobs of people telling him to do just that - including Senator Tim Scott.

But trying to walk back statements supporting white nationalists isn't exactly convincing in terms of revealing your true position - well, unless you're Social.  ;D

I didn't see or hear him make a statement in support of racists. The rest of the rational population didn't either. Perhaps a few of the irrational managed to create something out of thin air, but that seems to be what they do best.

Enterprise zones, (78 at last count), unprecedented support for the HBCU's, a lifetime of obvious actions that reflect equality, Trump can stand on his record. Contrived BS is just that, an untruthful election contrivance.

What statement has DJT made in support of White nationalists ?  And frankly, I'm surprised that you haven't repudiated being a socialist yet.

So, if I say that you're a racist, then you ARE a racist.  I see how that works now.  Thanks for the education.  Btw, you're a racist !

Herschel Walker has known him since the 80’s and he asks if you think he would be such good friends with him if he was a racist.

NONE of the morons you named cannot prove such accusations.  Why ?  Because he isn't the person they describe.  The lawyer denied a pardon and the niece who claims theft are the mindless accusers and you choose to believe them ?  Seriously ?  Then you are a member of the obsequious ne'er do wells who promote the daily Democrat media bilge against DJT.  You deserve the Dem party that you have because they are corrupt.  I'm sure they'll reserve a place at the kiddy table for at Thanksgiving after Trump kicks the Dems' ass with a landslide VICTORY.  To quote, It's coming !

And I see that you actually live here on the political forum.  One day I counted 17 threads posted by you just in the political forum and another 10 threads in the smack talk forum AND that was just on the first page of each.  In most of those threads half of the responses were by you.  Clearly you must not have much of a life to live.  Just think, you'll have at least 4 more years to live in rantville along with all the other socialists in just a few weeks.  DJT will probably be President through 2028 to undo the mess y'all have made of America.  Maybe even 2032 ? 😊

Can we once and for all kill off the distortion that Donald Trump called white supremacists “very fine people?” In the very same comments people are always quoting, Trump said "I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the White nationalists."

The discredited issue rose like a zombie when presidential debate moderator Chris Wallace asked Democratic candidate Joe Biden to address “President Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville three years ago, when he talked about 'very fine people' on both sides.” The former Vice President then gave an emotional account of the events, and repeated the “very fine people” comment, adding that “no president has ever said anything like that.”

Yes, Trump did, and has repeatedly, denounced white supremacists

Wallace’s question and Biden’s answer were based on a false premise. Yet it was amplified when Wallace asked President Trump if he was willing to denounce “white supremacists and militia groups,”
