Neo nazis and white supremacists are praising Donald Trump’s pathetic statement after a white nationalist rally turned deadly in Charlottesville, Va., on Saturday. One person was killed, scores injured after James Alex Fields Jr. plowed through counter-protesters in the streets.
Trump denounced the violence on “many sides.” He did not specifically condemn the white supremacists, but talked in general terms and even said “I love all the people of our country.”
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides.” “On many sides,” Trump said at a press conference.

Business Insider: “The founder of the Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi and white supremacist website that considers itself a part of the alt-right, celebrated the fact that Trump “outright refused to disavow” the white nationalist rally and movement.”
“People saying he cucked are shills and kikes,” wrote the founder, Andrew Anglin. “He did the opposite of cuck. He refused to even mention anything to do with us. When reporters were screaming at him about White Nationalism he just walked out of the room.”
“When Trump tweeted earlier on Saturday that “we ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for,” white nationalist Richard Spencer replied: “Did Trump just denounce antifa?”
Former KKK grand wizard David Duke said the rally was a ‘turning point’ in the effort to help people like him ‘fulfill the promises of Donald Trump,” NBC News reports.
