Governor Andrew Cuomo has launched a petition calling for President Donald Trump to more clearly condemn and denounce white supremacists.
The petition, located online, states the following:
"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.
