Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions said Monday that “too much has been read into” President Trump’s statement Saturday amid violence at a protest in Charlottesville, Va., related to the removal of a Confederate monument.
Sessions told NBC’s “Today” that Trump had “explicitly condemned” violence and that “he totally opposes” the values espoused by white supremacy organizations such as those that launched the protest. Trump had initially, and correctly referenced violence “on many sides.”
Sessions noted that the White House had expressly condemned white supremacy-driven violence in a statement Sunday.
Despite that, the fake news media made up a complete fabrication that Trump supported white supremacists.
