Top Republican Urges President Trump To Apologize For Charlottesville!

 

Mitt Romney Demands Trump Apologizes For Virginia Comments

Ever since the Charlottesville’s mayhem took place, people have been drilling President Trump because he refused to call out just one participant in the violence, and said there are two sides to blame. Now, Governor Mitt Romney is asking of the President to take “remedial action in the extreme” and offer an apology to the public.

As Romney pointed out, Trump’s comments were quickly perceived as racial and “caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn.”

“He should address the American people, acknowledge that he was wrong, apologize,” Romney said. “State forcefully and unequivocally that racists are 100% to blame for the murder and violence in Charlottesville. Testify that there is no conceivable comparison or moral equivalency between the Nazis — who brutally murdered millions of Jews and who hundreds of thousands of Americans gave their lives to defeat — and the counter-protesters who were outraged to see fools parading the Nazi flag, Nazi armband and Nazi salute.”

Aside from Romney, other Republicans denounced themselves of sharing the same opinions as Trump.

“There’s no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate & bigotry. The President of the United States should say so,” Sen. John McCain tweeted.

Then the Bush duo dropped their statement:

“America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms,” the Bushes said. Referring to Thomas Jefferson, they added: “As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city’s most prominent citizen in the Declaration of Independence: we are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights. We know these truths to be everlasting because we have seen the decency and greatness of our country.”

Take a look at Mitt Romney’s full statement and you be the judge of his rightfulness or wrongness in this case:

“I will dispense for now from discussion of the moral character of the president’s Charlottesville statements. Whether he intended to or not, what he communicated caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn. His apologists strain to explain that he didn’t mean what we heard. But what we heard is now the reality, and unless it is addressed by the president as such, with unprecedented candor and strength, there may commence an unraveling of our national fabric.

“The leaders of our branches of military service have spoken immediately and forcefully, repudiating the implications of the president’s words. Why? In part because the morale and commitment of our forces — made up and sustained by men and women of all races — could be in the balance. Our allies around the world are stunned and our enemies celebrate; America’s ability to help secure a peaceful and prosperous world is diminished. And who would want to come to the aid of a country they perceive as racist if ever the need were to arise, as it did after 9/11?

“In homes across the nation, children are asking their parents what this means. Jews, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims are as much a part of America as whites and Protestants. But today they wonder. Where might this lead? To bitterness and tears, or perhaps to anger and violence?

“The potential consequences are severe in the extreme. Accordingly, the president must take remedial action in the extreme. He should address the American people, acknowledge that he was wrong, apologize. State forcefully and unequivocally that racists are 100% to blame for the murder and violence in Charlottesville. Testify that there is no conceivable comparison or moral equivalency between the Nazis — who brutally murdered millions of Jews and who hundreds of thousands of Americans gave their lives to defeat — and the counter-protestors who were outraged to see fools parading the Nazi flag, Nazi armband and Nazi salute. And once and for all, he must definitively repudiate the support of David Duke and his ilk and call for every American to banish racists and haters from any and every association.

“This is a defining moment for President Trump. But much more than that, it is a moment that will define America in the hearts of our children. They are watching, our soldiers are watching, the world is watching. Mr. President, act now for the good of the country.”
