Republican Senator Lindsey Graham is calling on President Trump to condemn white nationalism after this weekend's deadly protests in Virginia.
South Carolina's senior senator told Fox News yesterday that, "Trump missed an opportunity to be very explicit." Graham referred to Trump's specific omission to the white hate groups in statements he made Saturday.
A woman was killed and nearly two-dozen were injured Saturday during protests that stemmed from the planned removal of a statue honoring Robert E. Lee.
The White House issued a statement yesterday that said the president "obviously" condemned groups like the KKK and neo-Nazis. Senator Graham urged Trump in the Sunday interview to "dissuade" white nationalists that "he's their friend."
