This Just In: Donald Trump has made an ACTUAL statement, not a tweet, on the Charlottesville riot that is now considered a state of emergency. Only thing is, he low key gave the rioters who are being led by white supremacists and white nationalists a ‘go ahead’.
After Trump’s initial ‘twitter statement’ a few hours ago on the matter, he took to his scheduled press conference originally intended for signing a new act to benefit veterans. Yea, right. Anyway he briefly started the press conference with,
We’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia. We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides.
Ok, and? Trump never went into the actual description to let the world know what type of ‘egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence’ that was happening. He couldn’t bring himself to say, ‘white nationalist’, ‘racist’ or ‘white supremacist’. Nope, but we do recall how he called immigrants, thugs, and sex offenders, right? He can only speak lies, the truth is too hard for his lips to form. He only continued with this,
“It’s been going on for a long time in our country, Not Donald Trump. Not Barack Obama. It’s been going on for a long, long time.”
Trump has been a known racist businessman in New York City and Barack Obama knows how it feels to be verbally attacked by racists. So, no Trump, it actually IS YOU and It HAS affected Obama. Trump’s unclear stance on the issue sent a message of acceptance to the supremacist. As reported by CBS, a reporter tried to get a question in after his statements asking, what he has to say to white nationalists who say they support him, and commit acts of violence. He ignored it and went back to his ‘veterans’ program.
Shortly after that, someone lost their life during the protest. CBS also reported that A, resulting in 19 injuries and one death.
Trump spoke of condemning, but he more so supported by not calling it out by name. This is what condemning looks like,
