Vice President Mike Pence is responding to the violence during a march by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, saying “these dangerous fringe groups” have no place in American public life. Pence was asked about the violent clashes this weekend in the Virginia college town as he spoke Sunday during a news conference in Cartagena, Colombia. Some Republicans and Democrats are critical of Trump for not specifically singling out the hate groups that sparked the violent protests that rocked Charlottesville. A senior White House aide is defending President Donald Trump’s remarks after a violent clash with white supremacists in Virginia left one person dead. Homeland security adviser Tom Bossert tells CNN’s “State of the Union” that the media was trying to “press on the words he didn’t say.” President Donald Trump is drawing criticism from Republicans and Democrats for not explicitly denouncing white supremacists in the aftermath of violent clashes in Virginia.
