Statement from President Taylor Reveley on violence in Charlottesville

Violence in Charlottesville

"This weekend, white nationalists terrorized Charlottesville and the rest of our country".

But the businessman-turned-president also touted his own economic achievements during his brief speech, mentioning employment numbers and recent companies that chose to relocate to the United States.

The president's statement condemned hatred, bigotry, and violence on "many sides," but did not mention what some politicians have called the "alt-right movement" in his remarks in a televised statement.

By virtue of his words, policies and embrace of "alt-right" supporters, many said Trump couldn't provide the moral leadership needed in times of racial strife.

Duke responded to Trump's earlier statements on Twitter in a series of his own tweets, reminding him "who put you in the presidency". "This has been going on for a long, long time". "So I don't know, did he endorse me or what's going on". "I place the blame for a lot of what you're seeing in American today right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the president", he said.

Adam Schiff, D-Calif., on Twitter. "We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation and true affection - really - and I say this so strongly - true affection for each other". "& true affection for each other".

In his decades of public life, Trump has never been one to hold back his thoughts, and that has continued in the White House, where in his seven months as President it has become clear that he views conflicts as primarily black-and-white.

"It is terribly sad to see anger and hatred take over when we all know that resolving disagreements peacefully is the path to better, more united communities".

Presaging Saturday's violence was another far-right rally Friday night at the campus of the University of Virginia, which included physical encountersbetween far-right protesters carrying torches and anti-racist counter-protesters. - Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat. "Everyone in leadership must speak out". - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican and Trump supporter.
