Even so, the president on Thursday also signed a resolution condemning white supremacy into law, claiming zero tolerance for bigotry, CNN reported. To hear Trump tell it, there were bad people among the racists, but there were "some pretty bad dudes on the other side" and "some very bad people on the other side".

Trump issued a statement saying he was pleased to sign it.

People immediately called the president out on social media for signing the resolution to condemn hate groups at Charlottesville after again shielding them from full blame for the violence.

Tim Scott, R-S.C., during their private meeting at the White House a day earlier. Trump said at the time that both sides shared blame for the violence.

It was just yesterday that Donald Trump returned to his harmful rhetoric regarding Charlottesville. "I think, especially in light of the advent of antifa, if you look at what's going on there, you have some pretty bad dudes on the other side also, and essentially that's what I said". The resolution singles out "white nationalists, white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups" for opprobrium. On Wednesday, House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said they'd agreed to a deal with the president that would protect some 800,000 DREAMERs, after Trump ordered the cancellation of the DACA immigration program. The ensuing violence culminated in the death of anti-fascist demonstrator Heather Heyer, who was killed by a auto driven into the crowd.

Trump last month said there were "very fine people" among the nationalists and neo-Nazis protesting the possible removal of a Confederate statue in Charlottesville.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump and Scott had an "in-depth" discussion about the Charlottesville comments, "but the focus was primarily on solutions moving forward".

He added, "When you look at really what's happened since Charlottesville, a lot of people are saying - and people have actually written - 'Gee, Trump may have a point'".

The Anti-Defamation League's CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt, said in a statement Thursday that "It is sad that the President seems not to have learned from his conversation with Senator Scott or from the unanimous vote from Congress condemning the neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville".

News reports that the resolution "urges the Trump administration to speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and white supremacy"'. We are a Nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal.

He also called on Americans to "rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together".
