Romney Calls on Trump to Apologize Over Charlottesville Comments


"This is a defining moment for President Trump. But much more than that, it is a moment that will define America in the hearts of our children. They are watching, our soldiers are watching, the world is watching," Mitt Romney said on Friday.

Former presidential hopeful Mitt Romney called on President Donald Trump to apologize for comments made after racially-charged violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In a Friday post to Facebook, Romney said what Trump "communicated caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn."

He called on Trump to also "state forcefully and unequivocally that racists are 100 percent to blame for the murder and violence in Charlottesville."

Trump faces continued fallout from his remarks laying blame for the violence at the white supremacists' rally on "both sides."
