Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, finally broke his silence about the horrendous white supremacist rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend. In an interview with “Good Morning America” host David Muir, Sessions refused to identify the driver who slammed into a crowd of protestors, killing 1 and injuring 19 others, as a domestic terrorist because the act “does not meet the definition of domestic terrorism” under U.S. law.
“It does not meet the definition of domestic terrorism in our statute. We are pursuing it in the [Department of Justice] in every way that we can make a case.”
Trump, for his part, also offered a tepid response to the attack, waiting several days to make a statement and condemning the “hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides,” as if there was any equivalency between neo-Nazis and the counterprotestors.
