Trump signs measure rejecting white supremacists

Trump has signed the congressional resolution condemning the "violence and domestic terrorist attack" in Charlottesville, Virginia. That means he's "rejecting White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups."

Why it matters: This comes hours after he repeated his statement Thursday that there was violence on "both sides" in Charlottesville, noting there are "some very bad people on the other side." This has raised suspicions that Trump is equating white supremacists and neo-Nazis with those who were part of the counter-protest.
