Refresh for updates President Donald Trump has tweeted a statement on the Charlottesville situation, nearly an hour after wife Melania Trump’s tweet and those of various celebrities and pundits. “We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for,” Trump writes. See his full statement below.
Previous Although President Donald Trump has not yet tweeted about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, the situation is already capturing the attention of Hollywood and New York’s entertainment and news communities.
“Let’s be clear,” tweeted director Rob Reiner. “The hatred we’re seeing in Virginia lies at the feet of Donald Trump. Stoked during the campaign, his silence condones this.” An apparently furious Seth Rogan posted an epithet-filled slam against “nazi motherf*ckers.”
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!

Every Congressperson who fails to denounce the supremacists in #Charlottesville & who does not condemn Trump's silence, is complicit in hate

Remember even if POTUS does finally speak out against the events in #Charlottesville he doesn't actually give a shit. Actions, not words.

White supremacists killed a person today. In America. In broad daylight. We're devastated but we are not surprised.

Overheard: One guy saying "this makes me feel like going home and putting my robe on." And I don't think he's a judge. #Charlottesville

The violent 'white supremacists' rioting in Charlottesville tonight should be treated as terrorists and charged as such #Charlottesville
