Politicians react to Charlottesville white nationalism rally


My prayers are w/ #Charlottesville. Let’s unite in standing against white supremacy and bigoted violence-it’s repulsive & has no place here.

What we’re seeing in #Charlottesville is unacceptable. I join those in condemning these terrible acts of hatred & bigotry. ​-PM

No American can ignore the disgusting hate and violence we’ve seen in Charlottesville over the last two days.

— Governor Jay Inslee (@GovInslee) August 12, 2017

We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2017

Am in Bedminster for meetings & press conference on V.A. & all that we have done, and are doing, to make it better-but Charlottesville sad!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2017

I stand with @POTUS against hate & violence. U.S is greatest when we join together & oppose those seeking to divide us. #Charlottesville https://t.co/p76Y9xQCPL

Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let’s communicate w/o hate in our hearts. No good comes from violence. #Charlottesville

— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) August 12, 2017

The views fueling the spectacle in Charlottesville are repugnant. Let it only serve to unite Americans against this kind of vile bigotry.

— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) August 12, 2017

Even as we protect free speech and assembly, we must condemn hatred, violence and white supremacy. #Charlottesville

— Bill Clinton (@billclinton) August 12, 2017

No. Not in America. We must be stronger, more determined and more united than ever. Racism and hate have no place here. #charlottesville

— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) August 12, 2017

The acts and rhetoric in #Charlottesville over past 24 hours are unacceptable & must stop. A right to speech is not a right to violence.

— Terry McAuliffe (@GovernorVA) August 12, 2017

@realDonaldTrump, thanks, at long last, for condemning hate in speech and action. Our work here is just beginning. Yours is too.

— Mike Signer (@MikeSigner) August 12, 2017

I am furious & heartsick by the car crash that has injured many. Please all-go home to your families. We can work tomorrow. GO HOME! PLEASE!

— Mike Signer (@MikeSigner) August 12, 2017

I am heartbroken that a life has been lost here. I urge all people of good will–go home.

— Mike Signer (@MikeSigner) August 12, 2017

My heart is in Charlottesville today, and with everyone made to feel unsafe in their country.

— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 12, 2017

But the incitement of hatred that got us here is as real and condemnable as the white supremacists in our streets.

— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 12, 2017

Every minute we allow this to persist through tacit encouragement or inaction is a disgrace, & corrosive to our values.

— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 12, 2017

People who came to VA to spew hate & incite violence have no place here. We stand for inclusion and will not go backwards. Praying for peace

— Senator Tim Kaine (@timkaine) August 12, 2017

The white nationalist demonstration in #Charlottesville is a reprehensible display of racism and hatred that has no place in our society.

— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) August 12, 2017

This is the consequence of having a President who openly and shamelessly incites racism. https://t.co/b7kT7CfZ6p

— Martin O’Malley (@MartinOMalley) August 12, 2017

The white supremacists and their bigotry do not represent our great country. All Americans should condemn this vile hatred. #Charlottesville

— Jeb Bush (@JebBush) August 12, 2017

“White supremacy” crap is worst kind of racism-it’s EVIL and perversion of God’s truth to ever think our Creator values some above others.

— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) August 12, 2017

Nothing patriotic about #Nazis,the #KKK or #WhiteSupremacists It’s the direct opposite of what #America seeks to be. #Charlotesville

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) August 12, 2017

Their tiki torches may be fueled by citronella but their ideas are fueled by hate, & have no place in civil society. https://t.co/himqTMBQnH
