The assembly was organized by neo-Nazis and Trump declined to condemn white supremacy even after the protest took a violent turn. On Wednesday,  four members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff have come out to denounce white nationalists since the terrible disaster in Charlottesville last weekend.

I think you are seeing a direct line from what happened here this weekend to those choices.” Vice Mayor Bellamy of Charlottesville, VA said, after saying his condolences, “they…

Hillary Clinton may not be president of the United States but she is wholeheartedly concerned for the victims of the Charlottesville rally.
