Trump Just Signed a Resolution Condemning White Supremacists

Just hours after reviving his assertion that there were “bad dudes” among the people who assembled to oppose a neo-nazi protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month, a reluctant President Donald Trump on Thursday signed a resolution condemning white supremacists and hate groups.

“You know, you have some pretty bad dudes on the other side also,” the president told reporters aboard Air Force once, sparking another round of criticism that the president has failed to adequately condemn hate speech.

The resolution, which Congress overwhelmingly approved this week, honors Heather Heyer, who was killed Aug. 12 when a car was driven into a group of counter-demonstrators protesting against a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Trump was criticized for his response to that deadly act of violence, in which he condemned bigotry and violence “on many sides.”

The bill urges the Trump administration to speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and white supremacy, such as white supremacists, neo-Nazis and other hate groups.

It also calls on the Justice Department and other federal agencies to “use all resources available” to improve data collection on hate crimes and to “address the growing prevalence of those hate groups in the United States.”

Trump said in his statement signing the resolution: “We are a Nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. As one people, let us move forward to rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.”

‘I can’t In Good Countenance Continue To Show This’: Fox News Cut Away From Trump’s Press Sec. For Pushing Baseless Claims Of Election Fraud

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Monday cut away from a press briefing featuring Kayleigh McEnany, who is both the White House press secretary and a Trump campaign spokesperson, as she continued to push Donald Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said as he cut off the press conference, pushing back on what he described as “explosive” charges from McEnany.

“Not so fast,” Cavuto added.

McEnany suggested, without evidence, that Democrats welcomed “fraud” and “illegal voting” in the 2020 election.

“We want every legal vote to be counted,” McEnany said, echoing President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that votes for President-elect Joe Biden were illegal.

Though multiple major news outlets, including Fox News, have declared Biden the projected winner of the 2020 election, Trump has refused to concede and is rejecting the results, claiming that he won the election.

Meanwhile, a number of world leaders have congratulated Biden on his victory, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Even before the end of voting on November 3, the president repeatedly signaled he would claim the election was “rigged” against him if he lost, but there is no evidence to substantiate such claims.
