via CNN:

The President just addressed the Charlottesville attack for the second time (his first statement on Saturday condemned the violence, but didn’t address white nationalism). Here are the key lines from today’s statement:

  • “To anyone who acted criminally in this weekend’s racist violence, you will be held fully accountable. Justice will be delivered.​”
  • “Racism is evil – and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including KKK, Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and other hate groups are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
  • “We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our Creator. We are equal under the law. And we are equal under the Constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.
  • “​In times such as these, America has always shown its true character – responding to hate with love, division with unity, and violence with an unwavering resolve for justice.”
