Antifa Protester: Trump's Denouncement of White Supremacists 'Too Little Too Late'
An Antifa counter-protester to the white nationalist demonstration-turned-violent in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend spoke out about the incident.
Several groups assembled in Emancipation Park to protest the planned removal of a long-time monument to the park's former namesake, Gen. Robert E. Lee.
Jabari Brisport, a Green Party candidate for New York City Council, said President Trump's condemnation of the white supremacists was "too little too late."
Brisport said Trump should've named the groups when he made his initial statement over the weekend.
"It's important to note what the president does in response to [violence]. He holds a lot of influence," Brisport said.
Charles Hurt, whose brother Robert preceded Rep. Thomas Garrett (R-Va.) in representing Charlottesville, said the violence "breaks my heart as a Virginian."
He called the incident an "unspeakable, senseless tragedy," but said the outcry against Trump's statements was an example of the "stupid debates" the public has after such events.
"It's just idiotic. We have the video- this footage. We have real problems we should be dealing with, and having stupid debates like this- I don't think it helps anything," Hurt said.
Radio host Vincent Hill said criticisms of Trump for failing to denounce the racist elements strong enough was "ridiculous" because of Trump's prior support for black leaders like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
