Trump Opens Speech To Congress By Condemning Hate Crimes

AP

President Donald Trump began an address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night by saying that the nation “stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.”

“Tonight, as we mark the conclusion of our celebration of Black History Month, we are reminded of our Nation’s path toward civil rights and the work that still remains,” he said, immediately after addressing the “citizens of America.”

“Recent threats targeting Jewish Community Centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week’s shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.”
