President Donald Trump on Thursday signed a resolution passed by Congress condemning white supremacists, Neo-Nazis and other hate groups, NBC News reported.
"As Americans, we condemn the recent violence in Charlottesville and oppose hatred, bigotry, and racism in all forms," Trump said in a statement. "No matter the color of our skin or our ethnic heritage, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God."
The resolution, which Congress overwhelmingly approved this week, honors Heather Heyer, who was killed Aug. 12 when a car was driven into a group of counter-demonstrators protesting against a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Trump was criticized for his response to that deadly act of violence, in which he condemned bigotry and violence "on many sides."
