A Republican U.S. senator from one of Donald Trump’s most popular states says the president’s comments about the violent white supremacist rally in Virginia has created a firestorm and that he should unite the country against racism.
West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito told the Charleston Gazette-Mail in a telephone interview that Trump’s most egregious comments were referring to some of the neo-Nazi protesters as “very fine people.” Capito told the newspaper she could not find a fine face in the crowd and that she was not going to try.
The first-term senator rarely criticizes Republican leadership.
But she said Trump has “not handled the situation very well at all” and said “anti-Semitic, racist, white supremacists … should have no place in this country.”
