Domestic Terrorism

Issue

The Charlottesville Virginia deaths are an ugly reminder that America's racist past is still very much alive.
Deaths and dozens of injuries following violent clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters in Virginia, with the state's governor blaming the neo-Nazis for sparking the violence and demanding that they get out of town.

Usually quick to comment, Trump, who claims he knows nothing about white supremacists seems to be at a loss for words in response to Charlottesville's deaths. 3 are dead and more injured following domestic terrorism in Virginia. President Trump blamed both sides. However, many disagree except for his white nationalist supporters.

Cuban-American GOP Senators slammed the deaths in Virginia and called it terrorism. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) demanded that the Justice Department investigate the crash as such.

“Having watched the horrifying video of the car deliberately crashing into a crowd of protesters, I urge the Department of Justice to immediately investigate and prosecute this grotesque act of domestic terrorism,” Cruz said in a statement.

“These bigots want to tear our country apart, but they will fail. America is far better than this.”

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) followed suit.

“Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists,” Rubio tweeted.

What is @realDonaldTrump waiting for?

@POTUS Trump tweets about things he does not like in MINUTES. Almost 30 hours have passed, and he still has not said he condemns NAZI, KKK, and white supremacists.
