Shameful Mitt Romney Just Scolded Trump and DEFENDED Violent Antifa Groups

Mitt Romney took issue with President Donald Trump’s claim that “both sides” had a share in the violence that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia Saturday.

At a press conference Tuesday, Trump characterized club-wielding protesters as the equivalent of the white supremacists whose rally the protesters sought disrupt.

“No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday.

Not everyone agreed with Romney’s assessment.

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter said Trump got it right.

“We were Gideon’s army without Gideon. Today, we got our leader back,” Coulter tweeted.

Trump spoke to the media Tuesday about the violence on Saturday. Although on Monday he condemned white supremacist groups, his Tuesday comments made it clear Trump thought both sides came to Charlottesville to commit violence.

Trump said there was “blame on both sides. You look at — you look at both sides. I think there’s blame on both sides.”

Trump also mentioned that there were “nice people” and “bad people” on both sides.

“As far as I’m concerned, that was a horrible, horrible day,” Trump said, adding, ” … you had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now. You had a group — you had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit, and they were very, very violent.”

“I’m not putting anybody on a moral plane. What I’m saying is this. You had a group on one side and you had a group on the other, and they came at each other with clubs and it was vicious and it was horrible. And it was a horrible thing to watch,” Trump said.
