Trump drew an abundance of criticism for failing to outright denounce the alt-right and white supremacist groups whose protests in Charlottesville turned violent.
WAJ adds – Trump gave Antifa a pass in his statement. That’s a mistake. They have committed violence to shut down opposing speech throughout the country and long before Charlottesville. They should have been named as a threat to our liberty along with the other groups.
