Key Words: Trump On Events In Charlottesville: There Is No Place For This Kind Of Violence In America

President Trump faced criticism on Twitter and elsewhere Friday night and Saturday morning before breaking his silence on the matter of the Unite the Right event in Charlottesville, Va., and the chaos and violence surrounding it, which resulted in the gubernatorial declaration of a state of emergency, but by afternoon Trump had posted a message on the social-media platform:

We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2017

He later added that he judged the events in Charlottesville “sad”:

Am in Bedminster for meetings & press conference on V.A. & all that we have done, and are doing, to make it better-but Charlottesville sad!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2017

Trump later spoke about the incident from a podium at his Bedminster, N.J., country club, coming out against “hatred, bigotry and violence — on many sides.”

The president’s initial message followed tweets from the first lady, Melania Trump, from former president Bill Clinton, from Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and from numerous other political-sphere notables:

Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts. No good comes from violence. #Charlottesville

— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) August 12, 2017

The views fueling the spectacle in Charlottesville are repugnant. Let it only serve to unite Americans against this kind of vile bigotry.

— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) August 12, 2017

Even as we protect free speech and assembly, we must condemn hatred, violence and white supremacy. #Charlottesville

— Bill Clinton (@BillClinton) August 12, 2017

Vice President Mike Pence tweeted that he supported Trump’s post:

I stand with @POTUS against hate & violence. U.S is greatest when we join together & oppose those seeking to divide us. #Charlottesville

— Vice President Pence (@VP) August 12, 2017

Among notable names involved in the divisive 2016 campaign posting reactions were Tim Kaine, running mate of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and a U.S. senator from the commonwealth of Virginia, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush:

People who came to VA to spew hate & incite violence have no place here. We stand for inclusion and will not go backwards. Praying for peace

— Tim Kaine (@timkaine) August 12, 2017

Nothing patriotic about #Nazis,the #KKK or #WhiteSupremacists It's the direct opposite of what #America seeks to be. #Charlotesville

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) August 12, 2017

The white supremacists and their bigotry do not represent our great country. All Americans should condemn this vile hatred. #Charlottesville

— Jeb Bush (@JebBush) August 12, 2017
