August 16, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Dwight Evans (PA-02) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s remarks during his news conference last evening:

“Yesterday, Americans nationwide saw President Trump’s true colors—not only did he walk back his comments with vitriol, he commended the actions of neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the remaining groups in the Alt-Right.”

“President Trump has proven that his loyalty lies with hate groups instead of Americans who believe that our country has no time for hatred, bigotry, or racism.”

“Every leader must condemn President Trump’s remarks, while joining the on-going conversations regarding race relations in our country with leaders of color in their respective communities.”

"The heinous actions that occurred last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, have not gone unnoticed and Republicans need to confront their loyalty to President Trump, a President who associates himself with white nationalists.”
