President Trump Condemns 'All That Hate Stands For' Amid White Supremacist Rallies

President Trump has finally spoken out to condemn the violence that has occurred at white supremacist rallies in Virginia.

The President of the United States was criticized on social media on Saturday morning (August 12) for his silence and his wife Melania Trump even spoke out before he did.

“We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!” Trump wrote.

People criticized the tweet for not actually calling out white supremacy or even mentioning Charlottesville in the tweet.

Former President Bill Clinton also sent out a tweet this morning that said, “Even as we protect free speech and assembly, we must condemn hatred, violence and white supremacy. #Charlottesville.”

The country is still waiting to hear President Trump speak out about the white supremacist march taking place in Virginia and his wife Melania Trump is letting her voice be heard first.

The First Lady of the United States took to Twitter to condemn the hatred in Charlottesville.

“Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let’s communicate w/o hate in our hearts. No good comes from violence. #Charlottesville,” she tweeted.

Donald Trump and his team have remained silent on the issue, despite a state of emergency being declared by the governor of Virginia.

Robert Pattinson Responds to Trump's Tweets About Kristen Stewart Cheating on Him

Robert Pattinson is finally sharing his thoughts on President Donald Trump‘s tweets about his ex Kristen Stewart cheating on him (though he wasn’t president at the time).

If you recall, back in 2012, Trump tweeted (11 times!) about Kristen cheating on her Twilight co-star, starting with, “Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again–just watch. He can do much better!”

Kristen has since spoken out about the incident and even joked about the tweets in her Saturday Night Live opening monologue, afterward claiming that she was disappointed Trump didn’t respond.

Robert laughed when asked about the tweets during his recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, stating, “I think there’s so many different levels of it. Your identity exists on many different planes at the same time and they all can be quite different from each other.”

“When [Trump] said that, it didn’t really mean anything,” Robert added. “But I guess now I’m sort of thinking, like, ‘Well, I guess that is related to me.’ But how does that fit in with all the other things going on in my life? And sometimes you think, ‘Can I use this in my acting? Or should I be putting it away.’ It’s kind of interesting, I guess. I don’t know — this could be why people get annoyed with me.”

Zedd Says Other Artists Should Speak Out About Trump

Zedd looks relaxed on the latest cover of Billboard magazine.

Here’s what the 27-year-old German DJ had to share with the mag:

On President Donald Trump: “No matter how big the scandal is, no matter how insane a [Trump] tweet is, it just keeps going. You feel powerless, and that’s terrible to me. Take that to a bigger scale and you end up in North Korea, where people are slaves of their own country.”

On urging other artists to speak out against Trump: “They don’t want to lose fans. I understand where they are coming from, but I disagree with that being a good reason not to speak up.”

On reaching out to Kesha to make music during public struggles: “It was just a therapy thing, making music with someone to help them feel better.”

Jared Leto, who collaborated with Zedd on a to-be-released 30 Seconds to Mars song (and has also taken him rock climbing), puts it: “He is a relentless worker and really puts in the time. He is not someone who just shows up and takes selfies all day.”
