Donald Trump has been under major scrutiny regarding comments made this past weekend regarding the White Nationalist rioting in the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia. Regardless of the differences, people from different political parties came together to both voice their disdain for what happened, as well as their concern for the lack of directness from the President, despite taking no time to be vocal about every other subject.
Trump would call out the Neo-Nazis, KKK, and White Nationalists as a whole during a press conference two days later. However, it was still blended in with other groups, which did not veer too far from the “many others” comment he made in New Jersey.
As a result of these comments, dozens of people clustered in front of Trump Tower in Manhattan, New York. Apparently, many did not buy what Trump has to say about this weekend. Especially, since it seemed as if he was focusing on reading the teleprompter correctly.
Dr. Russell Moore, head of the political arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, tweeted in June that “The so-called Alt-Right white supremacist ideologies are anti-Christ and satanic to the core. We should say so.” He defended this statement this evening on CNN, stating that the people should not be quiet about this, but peacefully protest in order to defeat the White Supremacy agenda.
