Trump received bipartisan disapproval for failing to identify white nationalists in his response to the horrific domestic terrorist attack in Charlottesville, VA. A man plowed his car into a line of vehicles, killing one woman and injuring over a dozen others.
Several GOP Senators took to Twitter to blast Trump for his lukewarm response. Marco Rubio and Cory Gardner both had no problem calling out the white supremacists who were directly responsible for the heinous act.
However, Senator Orrin Hatch said it best in a set of powerful tweets. He wrote:
“We should call evil by its name. My brother didn’t give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home. -OGH”

The Hill reports that Hatch’s brother died in WWII when Orrin was only eight-years-old. According to the report, Hatch dedicated his life to public service in honor of his brother.
Hatch’s message is representative of his life’s work and shows just how deeply he was cut by Trump’s pathetic response. Neo-Nazis have no place in America, but under Trump, they are feeling stronger than ever.
Trump blamed “many sides” for the domestic terrorist attack.
