US military leaders condemn Charlottesville violence via Twitter
While the commander in chief continues to put the blame on both sides, amid increading racial turmoil in the country, some leaders of the US military have come together to issue a rare statement condemning the deadly violence that occurred this month in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Five of the US joint chiefs in the Navy, Air Force, Marines, and National Guard used Twitter to voice their stand against the hatred.
Their messages did not mention Trump, who is the commander in chief, by name. But their outspokenness against white supremacy and bigotry is being seen as a veiled criticism against the President, after he insisted that “both sides” were at fault for the deadly violence.
