Every major media publication covered the white supremacist rally that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. It was everywhere — the internet, television, you name it. Charlottesville declared a state of emergency. But it took Donald Trump over 24 hours to address the actions of violent Nazis and the terrorist car attack that killed counter-protestor Heather Heyer.

It wasn't surprising that Trump initially responded by condemning hatred on "both sides."

On Saturday, August 12, he said, "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides, on many sides. It has been going on for a long time in our country — not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America." 

And after being criticized for not explicitly denouncing the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and Nazis, Trump gave a scripted speech on Monday, August 14, to lessen the backlash.

"Racism is evil — and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including KKK, neo-nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans," he stated.

People thought his comments came a little too late, so Trump did what he does best: tweet.

"Made additional remarks on Charlottesville and realize once again that the #Fake News Media will never be satisfied...truly bad people!" he wrote.

It doesn't end there, either. On Tuesday, August 15, he spoke at the Trump Tower in New York where he doubled down on his comments and reiterated that there was blame on both sides.

"I think there is blame on both sides. You look at both sides. I think there is blame on both sides. You had a group on one side that was bad and a group on the other side that was very violent." 

"What about the 'alt-left' that came charging at, as you say, the 'alt-right'? Do they have any semblance of guilt?" Trump said. "They came charging with clubs in their hands," he added. "You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it."

This *is* Trump we're talking about here.

By returning to his original defense and stating that "not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch," the president continues to perpetuate racism.
