Trump signs resolution condemning hate groups following August 12 rally

Jemele Hill attends ESPN The Party 2017 held on Friday Feb. 3 2017 in Houston Texas

The resolution, passed earlier this week by Congress after being sponsored by Democratic Virginia senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner, condemned the events in Charlottesville as a "domestic terror attack" and "white nationalists, white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), neo-Nazis and other hate groups".

The resolution also urged Trump and his administration to speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, anti-Semitism and white supremacy.

Heather Heyer was killed and nineteen others were wounded after a auto crashed into a crowd of anti-white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville last month.

"You know, there are also many bad guys on the other side", the president told reporters aboard Airforce 1, prompting new criticism that he did not adequately condemn the language of hatred. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the conversation with the high-ranking senator and the president went well, and Scott said he was "encouraged and surprised" at Trump's behavior during the meeting.

The president's remarks aboard Air Force One late Thursday addressed a meeting he had a day earlier with Sen.

Chaos erupted in Charlottesville after white supremacists protesting the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee were confronted by anti-fascists. When you look at really what's happened since Charlottesville, a lot of people are saying and people have actually written, 'Gee, Trump may have a point'.

In a White House statement issued Thursday, Trump said he opposed bigotry in all forms and was "pleased" to sign the resolution.

But even if all is well with Peterson and his coach, let's take one more look at the fierce expression on Peterson's face. Punter Ryan Quigley had a great game for a first game and Kai Forbath, minus the extra point miss , came through nicely.

I remain curious, though, about the president's repeated use of the phrase "other side".

He's also calling on Americans to "rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together".

Trump said Scott presented legislation he was working on to help create jobs and put people to work, which Trump said he supported.

Scott previously questioned Trump's "moral authority" over his Charlottesville statements.

Bennett sat on the bench during the national anthem before Sunday's game at Green Bay, one of several NFL players protesting in support of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who remains unsigned after starting the protests past year to bring attention to police brutality against minorities.

"Michael Bennett has been sitting during the anthem precisely to raise these issues of racist injustice that are now an intimate part of his life".
