Trumps Weak Reaction to Right Violence in Charlottesville

Sunday, August 13th, 2017 | World News

A demonstration of right-wing extremists in the US small town Charlottesville comes to fatal violence. Trump condemns the hatred without mentioning the alleged responsible person ─ and thus earns a lot of criticism.

After the escalation of the violence in a demonstration of right-wing extremes in a US small town criticism of US President Donald Trump is loud. This comes after many, as too weakly formulated response to the riots of both Democrats and Republicans. Politicians from both parties urged him to find clear words against the alleged culprits of the violence on Saturday.

True, Trump condemned the "monstrous violence," but did not directly mention the demonstration of right-wing extremists. Instead he spoke of "violence from many sides". While the US Attorney General said that actions for racist reasons and hatred can not be tolerated, the US president was guilty of condemning violence.

Politicians of Trumps weak reaction disappointed
It was also noted that on Saturday, Trump was the first to comment on the violence in Charlottesville – via Twitter – after dozens of other politicians from Republican circles had already strongly condemned them. These included Paul Ryan, President of the Chamber of Deputies, as well as the prominent senators Marco Rubio and Orrin Hatch. Rubio wrote via Twitter: "Nothing is patriotic at #Nazis, the #KKK or #WhiteSupremacists. It's the direct opposite of what #America is trying to be. "

Hatch said evil must be called by the name. "My brother did not give his life in the fight against Hitler, so that Nazi ideas can stand here at home unchallenged," replied the Republican. Virginia's Democratic Minister of Justice, Mark Herring, made it clear that violence, chaos and the loss of life in Charlottesville were not the fault of "many sides". On the contrary, racists are responsible.

And the mayor of Charlottesville, Michael Signer, looked for the blame right in Washington: "I lay the responsibility for much of what you see in America today, right in front of the White House and people around the President." He accused Trump of inciting racist prejudices with his election campaign last year. During the demonstration, some of the white nationalists appealed to Trump's election victory as confirmation of their attitudes.

  Also commentators of different television broadcasts sharply criticized the reaction trumps. Critics have already trumped Trump in the past, have not distanced themselves sufficiently from the rights.

Trump wants to restore order
Trump said after a first general condemning tweet at a performance at his resort in Bedminister (New Jersey). There was "no place" in America for violence like the one in Charlottesville, he said, without going into detail. He called on his countrymen to stand together and "love" each other, regardless of differences.

Trump also promised "a speedy restoration of law and order" and pointed to the latest achievements in the country due to his government: the declining unemployment rate, the return of foreign production workers, the negotiations on trade agreements – all this was great The country and the American workers. "There are so many incredible things happening in our country. When I look at Charlottesville, it seems to me very sad."

Violence escalation with baseball bat
The Democratic Governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, also sent an extremely keen message to the right-wing extremists. "You are not welcome here," he said at a press conference. "Go home, take your hatred and your prejudices, there is no room for you, and there is no place for you in America."

According to the authorities, an estimated 6,000 people from various ultra-right groups participated in the rally under the motto "United rights", according to members of the old-right movement, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux-Klan supporters, including their former leader, David Duke. The reason for the demonstration was a city council decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from the American Civil War (1861 to 1865).

According to television reports and reports, several rallying players had come with baseball bat, hours before the event came to violent contests with opponents. The allegedly targeted car attack took place after media reports, when a large part of the rally participants were already withdrawn and the Gegendemonstranten formed a separate protest train.
