Trump: Americans Must Come Together 'With Love for Our Nation ... and True Affection for Each Other'

Trump: Americans Must Come Together 'With Love for Our Nation ... and True Affection for Each Other' Read Transcript

But we're closely following the terrible events unfolding

in Charlottesville, Virginia.

We condemn-- in the strongest possible terms--

this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence

on many sides--

on many sides.

It's been going on for a long time in our country.

Not Donald Trump-- not Barack Obama--

it's been going on for a long, long time.

It has no place in America.

What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order

and the protection of innocent lives.

No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security

in our society.

And no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play

or be with their parents and have a good time.

I just got off the phone with the governor of Virginia, Terry

McAuliffe, and we agreed that the hate and the division

must stop and must stop right now.

We have to come together as Americans

with love for our nation and true affection--

and I say this so strongly-- true affection for each other.

Above all else we must remember this truth--

no matter our color, creed, religion, or political party--

we are all Americans first.

We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag,

we're proud of our country--

we're proud of who we are.

So, we want to get this situation straightened out

in Charlottesville and we want to study it.

And we want to see what we're doing wrong as a country

where things like this can happen.

My administration is restoring the sacred bonds of loyalty

between this nation and its citizens,

but our citizens must also restore

the bonds of trust and loyalty between one another.

We must love each other, respect each other,

and cherish our history and our future together.
