At a press conference, President Trump's condemned "this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides". On many sides. It's been going on for a long time in our country. He then added for emphasis: "On many sides". "It has no place in America". Reports indicate some of the white nationalists shouted anti-gay slurs as they marched through Charlottesville.

First lady Melania Trump was the first White House occupant to respond to the violence, tweeting 45 minutes before her husband that "our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts". But Trump walked away without giving an answer. "I urge all people of good will-go home", he wrote on Twitter. We're gonna fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. Trump didn't do that. Too often, though, our warnings and protestations are met with tepid responses.
