Trump Slammed for His ‘On Many Sides’ Comment on Charlottesville Violence

President Donald Trump spoke out against the violence and hate happening in Charlottesville during a press conference on Saturday afternoon (August 12) and he is being called out for a comment that he made.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides. On many sides,” Trump said in his speech.

Trump has been criticized for not pointing out the racism that is taking place and for not mentioning that it started with a white supremacy rally.

Many celebs and other Twitter users are blasting the “on many sides” comment that Trump made in the speech.

Read the responses below.

"On many sides" is the low point of a presidency that's already had a record number of low points.

When terrorists abroad plow cars into crowds Trump condemns "radical Islam." But when it happens here, he talks of violence "on many sides."

Did Trump really say that he condemns the violence on "many sides"? The white folks with tiki torches brought the violence, own it.

We should impeach this president on many sides.

On many sides. No. No. Someone died because of ONE, easily identifiable, self-titled "side". They are white supremacists AND terrorists.
