Jake Tapper Admits Trump Did Not Call Neo-Nazis ‘Very Fine People’

Trump specifically said, “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”

He used the phrase “very fine people” to refer to non-violent protesters, both left and right, on either side of the question of the removal of a Confederate statue.

In that same press conference, the president also specifically condemned the murder of Heather Heyer, calling it “terrorism” and “murder.”
