Congress Sends Trump Bill Condemning Neo-Nazis And White Supremacists

Congress Sends Trump Bill Condemning Neo-Nazis And White Supremacists

Scott's response to Trump's rhetoric about Charlottesville has resonated so strongly - perhaps more so than any other elected official's response - because Scott, a black Republican, has made issues of race in America a major part of his portfolio as a US senator. He said the president tried to explain his comment, and why he said there were "very fine people" among the nationalists and neo-Nazis protesting the possible removal of a Confederate statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month.

But afterwards, Scott's office was reportedly nonchalant about the mistake.

The House version of the bill was introduced by Rep. Thomas Garrett (R-Va.) and Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.) and the Senate version was introduced by Sen. "Tom Scott" in the caption of the original White House photo of the meeting.

"If you expect some sort of an epiphany or transformation to occur overnight just because somebody walks into a room, I think they don't understand human nature". You have some pretty bad dudes on the other side also, and essentially that's what I said. "So there's no way to find an equilibrium when you have three centuries of history versus the situation that is occurring today".

"No. 2, I think it's great for [Democrats and Republicans] to be able to make a moral call that white supremacy's not acceptable, and I want the president to have to sign it", Kaine said.

'President Trump remains committed to positive race relations and looks forward to continuing the dialogue with Senator Scott, the African American community, and leaders from diverse communities across the country, all of which have a wealth of perspectives and experiences with respect to this issue'.

The media consistently reported on his statements both on social media and those sent out by the White House as well as his spoken comments. But as we learned last month, the president's immediate and unequivocal condemnation of racist groups is no longer a given. The resolution now goes to President Donald Trump, who has been criticized for his response following the violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville.

"Racism is real. It is alive", Scott told VICE News in an interview that followed Trump's statements.

On the day of Heyer's death, President Trump denounced hatred and violence "on many sides", a comment that drew appalled reactions from across the political spectrum as it did not condemn white nationalists specifically. "His rise is a direct result of white supremacy".
