Scaramucci: Trump 'needed to be much harsher' on white supremacists

White House Invents Fake Trump Statement Saying He Condemns White Supremacists and Racists

Trump condemns hatred, bigotry 'on many sides'; car strikes group at white nationalist rally

The White House is saying that President Donald Trump "very strongly" condemns individual hate groups such as "white supremacists, KKK and neo-Nazis".

In the interview Mr Scaramucci also criticised his former boss' handling of violent protests involving white supremacists in Charlottesville in Virginia. The president himself has still not addressed the omission directly. Trump gave a statement Saturday pointing to "many sides" as being responsible for the violence; but while he denounced bigotry, he did not condemn white supremacy. Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, Neo-Nazi and all extremist groups.

Several Republican lawmakers have either called out Trump or issued statements singling out white nationalists and white supremacists.

On Sunday, Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, described the auto crash as domestic terrorism. The president on Saturday did not answer any questions from reporters, however, after he'd taken questions from reporters extensively in prior days.

"We figured this was a day we should all be together", said a man who introduced himself as Drew Williams and attended the service with his fiancee.

Democratic National Party chairman Tom Perez said, "America is no place for bigots. Lets come together as one!"

The president made his comments at a bill signing ceremony at his golf club in New Jersey where he's on a working vacation.

The former NY financier also linked the influence of Bannon to Trump's president's failure to forcibly denounce white supremacists who held a rally Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned deadly. He added: "It's been going on for a long time in our country". Instead, the president blasted hate and violence on "many sides".

Murdoch is the patriarch of 21st Century Fox, one of the world's most powerful media companies, and News Corp, the owner of newspapers like the Wall Street Journal.

"He missed an opportunity to be very explicit here", the South Carolina Republican told Fox News host Chris Wallace.

Trump came under bipartisan fire for not directly calling out hate groups in his remarks, and for belatedly tweeting that "many sides" were to blame for the violence.

"But I believe he has a chance to do that today", Gardner said.

White nationalists had assembled in Charlottesville to vent their frustration against the city's plans to take down a statue of Confederal Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, declared an emergency and halted Saturday's planned rally, but that did not stop the violence. Charlottesville police said he rammed his Dodge sports auto into a sedan, which then hit a minivan. At least three people have been killed, two Virginia State police officers felled in a helicopter crash and one demonstrator who died after a vehicle [allegedly driven by a white man identified by police as 20-year-old James Fields Jr.] intentionally rammed into protesters.

The driver - identified as James Alex Fields Jr., 20, from OH - was arrested and charged with murder and other crimes.

Two Virginia State Police officers were killed in connection to the rally. Three people later died, including two state troopers killed in a helicopter crash after responding to the scene. The crash is still being investigated.
