Kamala Harris Slams Donald Trump’s ‘Many Sides’ Rhetoric On Charlottesville

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) criticized President Donald Trump’s refusal to directly condemn the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend, instead choosing to blame “many sides.”

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides ― on many sides,” Trump said Saturday.

Harris, however, doesn’t agree.

“And as the country grappled with this tragedy, we were told that ‘many sides’ should be condemned. Many sides,” Harris said in a Facebook post on Sunday. “I often advocate that we look at many sides of an issue, walk in someone else’s shoes and identify and reject false choices. But there are not ‘many sides’ to this.”
