During his speech at Arizona rally, POTUS lashes out at media for condemning his comments on Virginia, claiming that he 'openly called for healing unity and love' in the aftermath of the riot.
"What happened in Charlottesville strikes at the core of America and tonight, this entire arena stands united in forceful condemnation of the thugs that perpetrated hatred and violence," he said. He claimed that he "openly called for healing unity and love" in the immediate aftermath of the Charlottesville incident.
Omitting that in his first response he blamed "many sides" for the violence, he added, "I strongly condemn neo-Nazis, white Supremacists and the KKK." Trump also called out the "weak, weak people" allowing Confederate statues to be removed. "They're trying to take away our culture. They're trying to take away our history," he said.
Celebrities have since reacted to Trump's speech at the rally, slamming him for defending his Charlottesville responses. "He's sick. This speech is insane. He's insane," Josh Groban wrote.
