Former US Presidents George H.W. Bush and his son released a joint statement condemning the racist Charlottesville attack: “America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms.”

The former presidents wrote that they are praying for those who got hurt while protesting in Charlottesville and quoted Thomas Jefferson, a citizen of Charlottesville himself. “We are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights,” they wrote. “We know these truths to be everlasting because we have seen the decency and greatness of our country.”

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham also sent President Donald Trump a warning today. “Mr. President, I encourage you to try to bring us together as a nation after this horrific event in Charlottesville,” he said. “Your words are dividing Americans, not healing them.”

Despite condemnations from his party, Trump received support from former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, who thanked the president for condemning the “leftist terrorists.”
