Donald Trump Gives His Reason for Not Condemning White Supremacy Right Away

Donald Trump is explaining why it took him several days to condemn white supremacy after the tragic events at Charlottesville over the weekend.

“I wanted to make sure, unlike most politicians, that what I said was correct,” he said.

“You don’t make statements that direct unless you know the facts,” he continued. “It’s a very, very important process to me. I don’t want to go quickly…I want to know the facts.

During his press conference, Trump took questions from reporters, and was continuously calling reporters “fake news.”

In addition, the President then placed some blame on the alt-left counter protesters.

“What about the alt-left that came charging at…the alt-right, do they have any semblance of guilt? They do,” he said.

    You’ve got the most powerful people in the world working for you. You surely know who I am and my snail mail address. If you wanted to know the facts, you would have already contacted me. My situation, on the other hand, is different. At the very least, there are those involved who wish me to think that my emails are monitored and intercepted, if they so choose to, even my phone calls are tracked, including text messages, etc. I am blacklisted from contacting anyone who could help. And now, I’m not interested. You want the facts, contact me.

    Fact: Neo-Nazi’s are racist terrorists. How long does it take to know & understand that fact? Just be honest Trump, you needed time to formulate an ambiguous response that wouldn’t alienate your neo-nazi supporters.
