White House says Trump condemns hate groups

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. Instead he blamed "many sides" for the "hatred, bigotry and violence".

The mayor criticized Mr. Trump for his statement on Saturday, in which he says the president should have called out the white nationalist, neo-Nazi groups by name. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama - this has been going on for a long, long time.

White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert on Sunday claimed President Donald Trump's failure to condemn white supremacists after violence broke out at a rally in Charlottesville was because he didn't want to "dignify" the movement.

Singer John Legend also called out the weak response from the White House: "We have nazi sympathizers and white nationalists in the White House".

Former White House media chief Anthony Scaramucci.

Authorities in Charlottesville, Va., were investigating a day after a rally of neo-Nazis, white nationalists, and Ku Klux Klan members erupted into deadly violence, including a vehicle that rammed into a march of counter-protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman. "Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups", a spokesperson said. "It is un-American. They are domestic terrorists and we need more from our president on this issue".

Added Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.: "Nothing patriotic about #Nazis, the #KKK or #WhiteSupremacists It's the direct opposite of what #America seeks to be".

The violence has put fresh pressure on the Trump administration to take an unequivocal stand against that segment of his political base. "Everyone in leadership must speak out". The president's condemnation of the violence was "specific" and "frankly, pretty unambiguous", Pompeo said on CBS.

"We have so many incredible things happening in our country", he said. "Now HE must call White Supremacy Terrorism by its name", tweeted Joe Scarborough, the MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-host and former Republican congressman from Florida.

"It meets the definition of terrorism".

McMaster called it "a criminal act against fellow Americans".

A former Wall Street financier, Mr Scaramucci was sacked from his job at the end of a chaotic 10 days which started with White House press secretary Steve Spicer resigning.

"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.

Trump cannily utilized these white nationalists as shock-troops for his insurgent candidacy, going so far as officially placing alt-right guru Steve Bannon in the White House as a key presidential advisor.

Clashes between groups protesting the city's decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, and those opposed to the rally, left more than a dozen people injured. Counter-protesters massed in opposition.

As you'll remember our reporting yesterday, graphic video was released of a Dodge Challenger vehicle deliberately driving into protesters at a peaceful anti-racist rally in the Virginia city, injuring more than 20 people. The driver was later taken into custody. They were met by counter-protesters, anti-racism activists, some of whom carried Black Lives Matter signs in a demonstration that quickly devolved into rolling, at times violent, clashes. "We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump".

"Trump comments were good". He didn't attack us ... He just said the nation should come together. "Then he has to move away from that sort of Bannon-bart nonsense".

"I wouldn't have recommended that statement", Scaramucci said.

President Trump also said that people should unite, bearing in mind that they "are all Americans first".

Trump, as a candidate, frequently came under scrutiny for being slow to offer his condemnation of white supremacists.
