WH: Trump 'looks forward' to signing resolution condemning white supremacists

White supremacists denounced in Congressional billThe White House announced Wednesday that President Donald Trump will "absolutely" sign a resolution condemning the Charlottesville violence and white supremacy.

Congress passed the bipartisan joint resolution condemning the Charlottesville violence -- as well as "white nationalists, white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups"-- earlier this week, pushing Trump to sign the resolution explicitly condemning the racist gathering.
The House passed the joint resolution by unanimous consent Tuesday night, a day after the Senate easily approved it.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump "looks forward" to signing the resolution, which comes weeks after Trump faced criticism from both sides of the political aisle for condemning "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" following the unrest in Virginia, equating the actions of white supremacists with those protesting them.
TVNL Comment: Yeah, he 'looks forward.'  Trump is being carried, kicking and screaming, to this signing.  He has no real political choice but to do this.  But how ugly is it that there has to be a bill denouncing evil?  Has no one in Washington learned from the past?
