This weekend marked the anniversary of Donald Trump’s abhorrent comments back in 2017 when, two days after the tragic death of a young woman protesting against a massive white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Donald Trump infamously said the protests “had people that were very fine people, on both sides.”
The two “sides” in question were the neo-Nazis and white supremacists shouting abhorrent antisemitic rhetoric and touting racist symbols and flags — and the people protesting them.
Marking the anniversary, American Bridge spokesperson Monica Venzke released the following statement:
“It’s way too easy to become desensitized to the horrific and batshit things Donald Trump says, but calling the neo-Nazis responsible for the violence of that day ‘very fine people’ was a new low that we cannot let ourselves forget. An innocent woman died, and this guy had the gall to defend it.”
American Bridge’s “This F*cking Guy” campaign is reminding voters of key moments from Trump’s presidency as he pursues the GOP nomination in 2024. Our Trump Research Book website exists to help allies find the research needed to defeat Donald Trump. The site is organized into multiple reports designed to help tell the full story about Trump’s failed presidency and make the case against his 2024 campaign.
