White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said President Trump has unequivocally condemned hate groups in the past.
In an interview Sunday, Conway said the president addressed the issue of hate groups as early as mid-2017 after the Charlottesville riots. She refuted the accusations of sympathizing with such groups, which were made by top Democrats against the president.
Conway also criticized Democrat 2020 hopeful Joe Biden for trying to weaponize the Charlottesville events against President Trump.
“I think anytime the president is willing to condemn people who hate other people based on race and religion, it’s a great day for America and that’s what he did,’ she stated. “All anti-Christianity, all anti-Semitism, all anti-Muslim activity should be condemned dead stop full.”
Conway also pointed out the New York Times ran a cartoon deemed as anti-Semitic, revealing the hypocrisy on the left. She suggested Democrats should admit they can’t beat President Trump fairly.
