Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) condemned comments made by President Donald Trump yesterday in which he tried to deflect responsibility for violence in Charlottesville, Virginia from white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and members of the Ku Klux Klan who rallied against the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

One woman was killed and nearly two dozen were injured when a white supremacist intentionally plowed his car through a crowd of counter-protesters. At a press conference yesterday, Trump said there is “blame on both sides” and “very fine people” on both sides.

“Despite what President Trump says, there are no ‘very fine’ Nazis or members of the KKK,” said Beck. “It’s outrageous that the President of the United States thinks it’s appropriate to morally equate those who want to celebrate and promote racism and slavery with those who are standing up to defend freedom, justice, and equality. I condemn President Trump’s comments in the strongest possible terms and call on him to apologize and retract his statement.”
