“Above all, we must remember this truth, no matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first,” he said.

Trump said that he spoke with Virginia governor Terry McAulliffe and said they agreed that the hate and division displayed in the city had to stop.

“We must love each other, respect each other and cherish our history and our future together,” Trump said. “So important.”

The president moved quickly to address the violence in Charlottesville, first sending a message on Twitter condemning the violence.

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

Trump remarks immediately drew criticism from the media and Democrats for not condemning the neo-nazis and white nationalists who demonstrated in Charlottesville.
