Shep Smith: Is Trump Attempting to Rewrite History About Nazis and Racism?
TRUMP: "So here’s what I said, really fast. Here’s what I said on Saturday. 'We’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia.' This is me speaking. 'We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence.' That’s me speaking Saturday. Right after the event."
SMITH: "But he left part of it out. Right after the event, the President blamed hatred, bigotry and violence on both sides. That last part of the quote, 'On both sides,' said not once but twice, drew criticism from Americans of all stripes. Back to John Roberts at the White House now. Leaving out 'On both sides,' was that — that was the controversy. There’s not many sides or both sides to Nazis and racism. What is he attempting to do, rewrite history?"
