Trump Slams Racist Hate Groups

The president had come under fire for not criticizing the groups by name earlier.

President Trump declared that “racism is evil” in a statement to the country on Monday, following the white supremacist domestic terror attack in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday.

“Those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,” Trump said.

“We are equal in the eyes of our creator. We are equal under the law. And we are equal under our Constitution,” he added.

The president had come under fire for failing to properly denounce the white supremacist violence earlier.
