Mitt Romney Urges Trump To Apologize For Charlottesville Reaction | CNBC

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has called on President Donald Trump to apologise for his reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left one person dead and several injured. Romney said in a Facebook post that the president’s response had caused “racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn.” Trump initially blamed “many sides” for the violence, but later condemned white supremacists and neo-Nazis. Romney said the apology was necessary to “restore moral authority in our highest office.”
