Statement on President Trump's Doubling-Down on Blame for Charlottesville Violence

On August 16, 2017, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement after President Donald Trump reiterated his belief that ‘both sides’ were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia:

"It is unbelievable and equally as shocking that President Trump continues to send mixed messages—through his words and inaction—on Charlottesville. We deserve a president who will stand up unequivocally to hatred and bigotry, instead of shifting focus and inspiring the KKK, white supremacists, white nationalists and the alt-right."
