Ponnuru: Trump ‘Gave White Supremacists a Propaganda Victory By Not Specifically Naming Them Yesterday’

‘President Trump can be extremely specific when he wants to criticize somebody’

PONNURU: "President Trump can be extremely specific when he wants to criticize somebody, whether it’s a former FBI director, a federal judge, or the cast of the 'Hamilton' musical. In the case of yesterday’s statement, he was unwilling to do that. And I think the president of the United States gave white supremacists a propaganda victory by not specifically naming them yesterday. And he has still himself not specifically named them."
