Trump On Charlottesville Violence: "Bigotry And Violence On Both Sides"

In the aftermath of the white supremacist rally which turned to deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, Donald Trump issued a statement denouncing the "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides."

It was the nazis' rally that turned violent. Not peace-loving citizens who made today so ugly in Charlottesville.

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. It's been going on a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It's been going on for a long, long time."

You'll note that "Not Donald Trump." He made a point to sidestep his own responsibility for stoking these racial flames the past two years.

This hurts my heart as an American. It honest to God hurts that our president can't boldly stand up to this white supremacist hate.

Watch below.
