The hate on display in Charlottesville has been horrific and un-American. My heart goes out to the families of those killed. I am united with all those who unambiguously condemn the bigotry and violence.

The President must be clear and condemn the hate-filled rhetoric, racist, anti-Semitic, misogynistic, homophobic and xenophobic actions from his supporters. Neo-Nazis, KKK, white supremacists and all the haters need to stop.

They will not tear our country apart. What is good and just in America is stronger and will prevail.
