After hours of demands on social media and yes, even on Fox News, minutes ago Trump issued a condemnation of the Nazi rally held in Virginia today, where white supremacists interspersed vile chants against gays, blacks, and Jews with chants of “Trump! Trump! Trump!”
Few will be satisfied with a vague tweeted condemnation of today’s hate rally and some have noted that Trump failed to name or hashtag the event, as even his wife has done. In fact, some extremists on Twitter are already claiming that Trump’s message is intended for the counter-protesters.
We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!

We came in peace. It was the government and antifa that used force against peaceful, lawful demonstrators. https://t.co/6oDkncSFna
