Muslim Advocates Responds to Trump’s Comments on White Supremacist Violence
Washington, DC – The following is a statement from Farhana Khera, Executive Director of Muslim Advocates, regarding Trump’s latest comments on the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, VA this past weekend:
“President Trump is acting like the white-supremacist-in-chief.
To be clear: there is only one side to this hate and violence, and the President is choosing to stand with the white nationalists, the confederates, the neo-Nazis, and people like Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka.
This is an intolerable failure to govern our diverse nation, and we urge all Americans to hold this president accountable.”
