Donald Trump signs resolution condemning white supremacy

On Thursday, Trump reiterated his point that left-wing Antifa groups also deserved condemnation for their acts of violence.

While urging Trump to "speak out against the hate groups that espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and White supremacy", the resolution also honored an anti-racism protester, who was killed after a neo-Nazi sympathizer intentionally drove a vehicle into a crowd on August 12 in downtown Charlottesville, a historic college town.
