WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Saturday condemned violence that erupted between white nationalists and counter-demonstrators on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“We must ALL be united & condemn all that hate stands for,” Trump wrote in a Twitter message. “There is no place for this kind of violence in America.”
Trump later added:
Officials had approved the protest march in downtown Charlottesville but cancelled the event and declared a state of emergency after outbreaks of violence.
Following Trump’s original message, Vice President Mike Pence said he was standing with Trump against “hate & violence.”
Trump’s wife Melania also issued a tweet on the violence in Charlottesville.
Meanwhile, numerous celebrities have likewise taken to Twitter to condemn the violent clashes. However, many stars also bashed Trump for taking so long to respond, while others accused him of stoking the flames of white supremacy during his campaign.
Be warned, however, some of the celebs use language that is decidedly NSFW.
I would like to speak out against these ignorant ass fools marching in Charlottesville. Believe it or not, they do not represent the majority of "white people". Most of "us" white folk (I'll say it again, I subscribe to the human race and we're all pink on the inside) are embarrassed of these small dicked privileged spoiled ass losers. Like these good people in this picture. Most people are good people, there are small groups of every sort that make it ugly for the rest of us. I apologize on behalf of these idiots. Maybe mommy and daddy should cut off their allowances.
