Trump calls for "swift restoration of law and order" in Charlottesville
President Trump delivered remarks from Bedminster, New Jersey, on the white nationalist protest happening in Charlottesville, Virginia, calling for "a swift restoration of law and order." One person has reportedly died at today's rally after being struck by a car that plowed into marching protesters, with many more injured. Trump quotes:
- "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides... We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation and true affection for each other."
- "It's been going on for a long time in our country... not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, it's been going on for a long time. It has no place in America."
- "I want to salute the great work of the state and local police in Virginia ... the National Guard has been working smart and working hard, they've been doing a terrific job."
