Republican lawmakers encourage Trump to specifically call out white nationalists

Republican lawmakers are encouraging President Trump to specifically call out the white nationalists involved in the violent protests in Charlottesville on Saturday.

“Mr. President – we must call evil by its name,” Colorado Republican Sen. Cory Gardner tweeted. “These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism.”

Trump didn’t single out the white nationalists when he addressed the unrest on Saturday evening. He blamed “many sides” for the violence.
