"After the deadly and ugly events in Charlottesville ‎I am calling on President Trump to clearly and unequivocally condemn and denounce the violent protest organized by white supremacists and neo-Nazis including Richard Spencer and Jason Kessler, with support from David Duke. Mr. Trump must immediately call this what it is - no cover, no euphemisms.

This was a terror attack by white supremacists.

Join me in signing a petition demanding that President Trump acknowledges this hate for what it is: Domestic terrorism willfully perpetrated by white supremacists.

Let's remind him - the hate and violence in Charlottesville had only one side, and it has no place."

According to a press release, the petition is open not only to "concerned New Yorkers", but others as well.
