Charlottesville Mayor Blames Trump for the Violence: “Look at What Kind of Campaign He Ran” (VIDEO)
Charlottesville, Virginia Democratic Mayor Michael Signer joined Jake Tapper today on State of the Union to discuss the rioting and deadly attack Saturday in his city.
Mayor Signer pinned the blame for yesterday’s deadly violence directly on President Trump.
This is the kind of despicable language coming from the liberal media and Democratic party today. They are blaming President Trump when a white supremacist runs over a crowd of leftists.
Sadly there are several weak Republicans who this weekend joined the media to attack President Trump.
Signer said the blame Saturday’s violence falls “right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the president.”
Here’s a partial transcript:
JAKE TAPPER: You said you place blame for these terrifying events — quote — “right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the president” — unquote.
That is a — that is a very strong charge to level. Why do you think the president himself bears responsibility?
MICHAEL SIGNER: Well, look at the campaign he ran. I mean, look at the intentional courting, both on the one hand of all these white supremacists, white nationalists, a group like that, anti-Semitic groups, and then look on the other hand the repeated failure to step up, condemn, denounce, silence, you know, put to bed all those different efforts, just like we saw yesterday.
I mean, this is not hard. There’s — you know, there’s two words that need to be said over and over again, domestic terrorism and white supremacy. That is exactly what we saw on display this weekend.
And we just aren’t seeing leadership from the White House. We certainly are going to see leadership from cities like Charlottesville, from mayors, from leaders all around the country left and right.
This is a new low for the liberal left.
What disgusting comments.
You just cannot trust the liberal media or Democratic politicians to report the truth today.
