Trump retweets Alt-Right leader who praised white supremacist Richard Spencer

President Donald Trump has retweeted a statement written by one of the alt-rights leading figures, who has defended white supremacists.On Monday the president denounced violence at a rally in Charlottesville, Virigina, over the weekend. Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans, said Trump. Trumps statement followed concerns, including from many Republicans, that his earlier condemnation of violence on both sides Saturday didnt single out racist groups, particularly after James A. Fields Jr. was charged with second-degree murder. Fields Jr. reportedly rammed his car into counter-protesters at the rally, killing one and injuring 19 others.   Aug 16, 2017
