Following the ‘Unite the Right rally’ in 2017, where white supremacists clashed with counter-protesters, one would expect a clear condemnation. But it was more like a dance around the issue. Trump said there were “very fine people on both sides,” which equates hate-spewing neo-Nazis with those standing against them.

The backlash was swift, with critics and supporters questioning Trump’s refusal to denounce white supremacists unequivocally. Even for the Trump faithful, this was tough to sweep under the rug.
