Trump signs resolution blasting supremacists

Despite initial indications that he may not sign it, President Donald Trump signed an anti-white supremacists resolution into law Thursday evening, condemning the white supremacists that started a violent rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last month.

The resolution also urged Trump and his administration to speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, anti-Semitism and white supremacy.

Trump was widely criticized for suggesting "both sides" shared blame for the violence between white supremacist groups and those opposed to them. As one people, let us move forward to rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Trump, traveling on Air Force One Thursday, was asked about his meeting with Scott and quickly returned to his criticism of protesters who took to the streets to counter KKK and white supremacist marchers in Charlottesville in August.

On Wednesday, Trump met in the White House with Senator Tim Scott of SC, the only black Republican in the Senate. "I said, 'you've got some very bad people on the other side also, ' which is true".

Scott said he told the president that there was no comparison.

Baghdad not to recognize outcome of Kurdish independence vote, Armenian analyst says
Two of Turkey's three opposition parties have also declared that they opposed an independence referendum in northern Iraq. It is clear that the Iraqi authorities can maximally grant a broader autonomy to the Iraqi Kurds seeking independence.

"[Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and I] had a great talk yesterday". I told him I would do it, and he knows we've already done it. The ensuing violence culminated in the death of anti-fascist demonstrator Heather Heyer, who was killed by a vehicle driven into the crowd.

In response to Trump's new remarks, Scott's office put out a statement that said in part: "Rome wasn't built in a day and to expect the President's rhetoric to change based on one 30 minute conversation is unrealistic".

CNN held a panel discussion on Trump's comments this morning, and things got a bit heated between CNN political commentator Keith Boykin and guest Bruce LeVell, a Trump advisor who serves as the executive director of Trump's national diversity coalition.

"That was what both people came to the meeting wanting to discuss", Ms. Sanders said during a White House briefing.

Bennett sat on the bench during the national anthem before Sunday's game at Green Bay, one of several NFL players protesting in support of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who remains unsigned after starting the protests previous year to bring attention to police brutality against minorities.
