The Congressional resolution condemns white supremacists as if they were the only reason for the violence.
It wouldn’t make sense for Donald Trump to refuse to sign the Congressional resolution condemning White nationalists. He had already done that verbally. But it is stupid that the Congressional resolution was crafted in order to give public backing to the outright lie that Trump had not condemned white supremacy, or not condemned it hard enough.
The resolution condemning the violence and describing it as a “domestic terrorist attack” was pressed by Republicans and Democrats in Congress in reaction to the controversy over the president’s remarks.
The statement specifically condemns white nationalists, white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and “other hate groups” but does not mention violent leftist groups like Antifa.
The resolution urges Trump to “use all available resources” to address the threats posed by white nationalist groups.
