Republicans slam Trump for failing to condemn 'Nazi ideas' after white supremacists clash with anti-fascists in Virginia

Republicans slam Trump for failing to condemn 'Nazi ideas' after white supremacists clash with anti-fascists in VirginiaDonald Trump has condemned the "egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" during clashes between white supremacists and anti-fascist protesters in Virginia. In a speech, the US President did not specifically condemn the far-right groups who gathered in Charlottesville — including some carrying assault rifles and wearing paramilitary-style clothing — to protest about plans to remove a statue to Confederate General Robert E Lee. This sparked outrage among some leading Republicans with Senator Orrin Hatch writing that his brother "didn't give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home".
