Donald Trump has tweeted a response on Saturday's state of emergency when a car drove into a crowd of people who were violently street fighting at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.
"We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!"
The president also issued another tweet that caused a lot of uproar on social media. "Am in Bedminster for meetings & press conference on V.A. & all that we have done, and are doing, to make it better-but Charlottesville sad!"

See what Hollywood has to say about the president's unsympathetic tweets.

We shouldn't let ourselves forget that a real president of either party would be working on remarks condemning the hate in Charlottesville.— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) August 12, 2017

We have nazi sympathizers and white nationalists in the White House. Condemn them too. They should not be receiving taxpayer money.— John Legend (@johnlegend) August 12, 2017
POTUS condemning "hate" makes it sound like #Charlottesville was equally hateful factions. This is racism and racism needs to be condemned.— John Pavlovitz (@johnpavlovitz) August 12, 2017
Experts on CNN saying videos of people chanting "Heil Trump" are a political problem for the right.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) August 12, 2017
They are demonstrably not.
What's really sad is that many have now accepted a Tweet as a "statement from the President" in times of National crisis. #Trump— John Pavlovitz (@johnpavlovitz) August 12, 2017
Awfully vague statement from the guy who was obsessed with politicians not specifically saying "radical Islamic terrorism" https://t.co/5oysCGVyhh— Patrick Monahan (@pattymo) August 12, 2017
Donald Trump is unfit for office. Needs to be removed.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) August 11, 2017
