The President has added his thoughts to the ongoing saga in Charlottesville where White Nationalists and counter protesters and police and media have gathered and clashed and fought and arrested. In the form of a tweet.
We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!

It’s a pretty okay tweet overall. The haters will hate it anyway. His adoring fans, some of whom without question were among the confederate clad today, will love it anyway. It won’t change any minds or move any needles.
But as far as doing the bare minimum to acknowledge the story, this was fine.
