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.

Jimmy Fallon Addresses Trump's Delayed Charlottesville Comments On 'Tonight Show' - Watch Here!

Jimmy Fallon kicked off Monday night’s (August 14) episode of The Tonight Show with a somber tone and criticism of President Donald Trump and how he’s responded to the violent marches that erupted in Charlottesville, Va., where white nationalists have been clashing with counter-protestors.

“What happened over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, was just disgusting. I was watching the news like everyone else, and you’re seeing Nazi flags and torches and white supremacists, and I was sick to my stomach,” the 42-year-old host emotionally expressed.

Jimmy appeared to be fighting back tears as he talked about his daughters who “don’t know what hate is,” addressing aloud that it’s important for parents, teachers and “leaders who appeal to the best in us” to help children understand.

“The fact that it took the president two days to come out and clearly denounce racists and white supremacists is shameful,” Jimmy added. Watch the full monologue below…

Jimmy Kimmel Reacts to Trump's Charlottesville Comments (Video)

Jimmy Kimmel is sharing his thoughts on how President Donald Trump has been handling the violent marches that erupted in Charlottesville, Va., where white nationalists have been clashing with counter-protestors.

The 49-year-old talk show host addressed the situation during his opening monologue on Monday night (August 14).

“We went into the weekend worrying about the fact that Kim Jong-un vowed to start a war by the middle of this month,” Jimmy said. “And we come out of it wondering if our president is cutting eye holes out of his bedsheets.”

“As you know, this weekend in Virginia, the worst people in the United States went to the hardware store, bought tiki torches, lit them up, and marched in Charlottesville,” he continued. “A non-violent protester was killed by a white supremacist and so the president – who is the president, by the way – went on television. … He started strong, and then he had to throw in ‘on many sides.’”

“Let’s not lay all the blame on the Nazis and the Klan, there were people who marched against them,” Jimmy joked, adding, “Then for two days he had no further comment. The one thing he decides to be quiet about is this! Of course, everyone went nuts because there weren’t many sides – there were two sides – and one of those sides had Nazis on it.”

“All he had to do was condemn the Nazis, it shouldn’t have been a difficult thing,” Jimmy said. “It’s not exactly a controversial stance, not like we asked him to come out against puppies.”

He also shared, “Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, called this rally ‘evil’ and ‘disgusting.’ You understand what that means? That means Germany is taking a stronger stance against Nazis than we are, and they invented them.”

“Racism is evil,” Trump said om his new statement. “And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.

Trump also said that “justice will be delivered” and paid tribute to Heather Heyer and the two Virginia state troopers who died.

“In times such as these, America has always shown its true character. Responding to hate with love, division with unity and violence with an unwavering resolve for justice,” he said.

During last night’s (August 13) episode of Last Week Tonight, John joined a number of celebrities in condemning Trump for his failure to call out the white supremacists.

“Wait, on many sides?” John said in response. “This was a white nationalist rally, you have to call that out by name. There honestly aren’t many instances in modern American politics where you can honestly think, ‘That guy really should have mentioned the Nazis,’ but this is emphatically one of them. It’s like a reverse Godwin’s Law: If you fail to mention Nazism, you lose the argument.”
