The White House is in full scramble mode, as they have released a statement from an unnamed White House official claiming that Trump’s statement included white supremacists and racists.
Here is the statement that was sent to reporters from with no name attached:
Here is what Trump’s statement on Saturday said, “But we’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia. We condemn in the strongest possible terms 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. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society, and no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play, or be with their parents, and have a good time.”
This is an example of how the White House tries to spin Trump’s vague words into something that they aren’t. If Trump wanted to condemn racists and white supremacists, he could have done so very easily. The President has never had an issue with condemning acts of Muslim extremist terrorism, so why is it impossible for this White House to specifically condemn white racist domestic terrorism?
The White House statement had no name attached because it is fake news. The same White House is telling journalists that they blame left wing mobs who were as or more violent than the racists in Charlottesville.
The administration is getting hammered with bad media coverage after Trump’s statement, so they responded with some fake news that absolutely no one believes.
