Republican and Democratic Senators: Charlottesville Violence Is Domestic Terrorism

"President - we must call evil by its name", Gardner said in one tweet after the violence that erupted Saturday in Charlottesville, Va. "These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism". U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah, in a tweet stated: "We should call evil by its name".

"President Trump condemned the violence at a white supremacist rally in Virginia Saturday and called for a "swift restoration of law and order".

As white nationals stoke violence in Charlottesville, Va., President Trump and Sen.

"Today's attack is not the results of 'many sides' - it's an act of domestic terrorism". Michael Bennet, reacting to Trump's remarks about the violence in Virginia.

"It's been going on for a long time in our country", Trump told reporters.

For context, keep in mind that these are not back-bench Republicans.

He also did not label the later assault, which occurred when a car plowed into a crowd of protesters in the city's downtown area after police halted the rally.

"Do you want the support of these white nationalist groups?" Pres. Trump ignores question after blaming "many sides" for #Charlottesville.

"We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for", he wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Meanwhile, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper denounced the violence and said hatred had no place in society. And, as much as possible, we'll relate what else was going on at the time.

"My heart wrenches for VA & I pray for the safety of all in #Charlottesville during these horrific turn of events", said Denver Mayor Michael Hancock. "For the future of our country, leaders & community members must denounce these hate fueled acts".

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.

Disturbances began Friday night during a torch-lit march through the University of Virginia before escalating Saturday.

His words did not go unnoticed - prompting top GOP senators, like Sens. "This is nothing short of domestic terrorism and should be named as such".
