Sen. Cory Gardner Calls Trump Out On Twitter

President Trump has received a ton negative backlash for his pathetic response to the terrorism that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia on Friday night. Not only has former Vice President Joe Biden spoken out against Trump’s disingenuous response, but Hillary Clinton also shared her thoughts on leadership and how a leader should react to these types of violent situations. But now, even Republican lawmakers are going after Trump  over his statement on violent clashes in Charlottesville, Va., with Cory Gardner going as far as saying Trump needed to call it a “terror attack by white supremacists.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Mr. President – we must call evil by its name. These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism,” The Republican senator tweeted on Saturday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s more, Sen. Marco Rubio also called out Trump. Rubio tweeted: “Very important for the nation to hear [President Trump] describe events in Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by white supremacists.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Furthermore, Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch said not calling out neo-Nazis out was personal for him, recalling his brother’s death in World War II. “We should call evil by its name. My brother didn’t give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said: “What ‘White Nationalists’ are doing in Charlottesville is homegrown terrorism that can’t be tolerated anymore that what any extremist does.”

 

 

 

 

 

Does Trump regret his remarks?
