“We’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia,” President Trump said Saturday from New Jersey, quoted by CBS News, which pointed out the commander-in-chief did not address brazen Nazi symbolism and regalia worn by the self-identified alt-right attendees. “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides.”
“It’s been going on for a long time in our country,” Trump said of racism and bigotry at the chaotic event.“Not Donald Trump. Not Barack Obama. It’s been going on for a long, long time.”
“We have to heal the wounds of our country,” the president concluded.
“I am heartbroken that a life has been lost here. I urge all people of good will,” tweeted Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer, “go home.”
