The progressive news media and progressive politicians have spread this lie so effectively that most of your progressive friends accept is as gospel truth. President Trump never said that Neo-Nazis or white supremacists were “very fine people”, but strongly denounced them. He was referring to honest, decent people on both sides who disagreed about the removal of a Confederate statue, not the radical activists who showed up for a fight. This is crystal clear in both the transcript and video of Trump’s statement, but that doesn’t fit the progressive narrative, so you never see or hear from the Left.
Watch this video by Prager U for the specifics.
