Trump says recent antifa violence justifies his condemnation of both sides in Charlottesville

President Trump on Thursday condemned the violence by the anti-fascist protest movement known as “antifa,” saying their tactics around the country have proved him right for denouncing bad actors on both sides of the racially charged clashes with white supremacists in Charlottesville last month.

Trump said he explained his views on antifa to Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) during their private meeting at the White House a day earlier. Scott had expressed disgust with Trump’s handling of the Charlottesville aftermath.

Even after denouncing the hate groups by name, Trump within days mounted a defense of his initial response, asserting there were “very fine people” among the marchers and suggesting both sides were to blame for the violence.

No asshole. The unfiltered hate is only coming from one side. The white supremacy is only coming from one side. The tiki torch marches are only coming from one side. You do not get it.

1. Trump is just trying to pacify his base, who are pissed

because he was dealing with Dems on DACA. He has no real opinions or compunctions. Empty, but for DT, his $$$, and some of his family, extentions of himself.
