Trump’s “baffling” remarks require GOP to take a stand against “repugnant” racism

Coming-up this weekend on NC Policy Watch’s News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon, we are joined by Catawba College political scientist Dr. Michael Bitzer.

Bitzer discusses President Trump’s “baffling” decision to abandon his earlier condemnation of racist hate groups for violence in Charlottesville, and instead blame both sides.

“The issues of the KKK and white supremacy is a stain on American history. These kinds of things are morally repugnant. And if those words cannot come out of a president’s mouth, then it is incumbent for members of his own party along with others of us to say those things.”
