CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA — Two days after the white nationalist’s tiki-torch parade, protesting the removal of this Confederate statue of General Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, President Donald Trump finally condemned the white supremacists actions, and the blatant racism that came with it.
“Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,” Trump said in a news conference.
This Filipino resident of Charlottesville says his response came two days a little too late.
“Dapat, ini-spell out niya yung white supremacist from the get-go, kasi it would not have emboldened… yung mga terrorist group sa domestic terrorists,” said Joel Codiamat.
Residents of this college town, are still mourning the loss of one of their own, as this makeshift memorial continues to grow by the hour.
The tiki torch carrying supremacists are reportedly planning to stage another protest in Charlottesville soon.
“Dapat hindi na sila bumalik like the governor said and the mayor — they are not welcome here, go home, what Charlottesville represent is acceptance and free for all,” said Codiamat.
