America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms. As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city’s most prominent citizen in the Declaration of Independence: we are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights. We know these truths to be everlasting because we have seen the decency and greatness of our country

And it does not call out Trump by name.
Is there NO ONE in the Republican party with a SPINE?!
Honestly, Republican leaders don't need to name Trump by name. We all know who they are talking about.BRAVO FOR BUSH SR. AND BUSH JR.— Jose Deynes (@josedeynes) August 16, 2017
Thanks to both the Bush men. Now hopefully Carter, Clinton & Obama will follow.— RedStar Resistance (@Redstar_2112) August 16, 2017
Why? What he says is almost the same as what Trump said. We agree.— DeplorableOkie (@adstone79) August 16, 2017
Nice, but they need to denounce Trump for being a mouth piece for the hatred that they are denouncing.— Ali Ash (@HumanAndFlawed1) August 16, 2017
Disappointed that a president who actually fought Nazis in WWII can't call out Trump by name.— Claire Splan (@ClaireSplan) August 16, 2017
