Sessions: Trump "absolutely" needs to condemn neo-Nazis

Attorney General Jeff Sessions told CBS This Morning's Norah O'Donnell Monday that President Trump "absolutely" needs to specifically condemn neo-Nazis and white supremacists for their role in Saturday's deadly attacks in Charlottesville, Virginia. "His spokesman said it yesterday and I'm sure he'll reiterate that in the days to come," Sessions added.

Sessions also appeared on the TODAY show Monday, where he discussed the backlash Trump faced for his response to the attacks. Sessions said he thought "it was a good statement" and that it "directly contradicted the ideology of hatred and violence." He later added, "I'm sure he'll talk about it again soon … He will be speaking to the people today. I'm not sure what he'll say."
