GOP Senator To Trump: My Brother Didn’t Die Fighting Hitler For Nazis To Go Unchallenged Today





GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) denounced President Trump for refusing to single out white supremacists at a Virginia rally, declaring “My brother didn’t give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home.”

“We should call evil by its name. My brother didn’t give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home. -OGH,” Hatch tweeted on Saturday.

The Hill adds:

Hatch was just eight years old when his brother was killed in World War II. However, he has said it left a lasting mark on the rest of his life and has credited his brother in the past for his own life in public service.

His brother, 20-year-old Jesse, was an Army corporal serving as a nose turret gunner when his B-24 bomber went down over Austria.

Trump had refused to single out the white supremacists who held the rally in Charlottesville, Va.

In his first public remarks condemning Saturday’s violence in Charlottesville, Va., Trump refused to single out the white supremacists who held the rally which left three people dead and at least 34 injured.

A car plowed into a crowd of counter-protestors at the rally, leaving one dead. Two Virginia State Police Department officers who were in a hellicopter surveilling clashes below were killed when their helicopter crashed.



“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides,” Trump said.
