“As Democratic Attorneys General, we condemn white supremacy explicitly and totally, and we call for all our elected leaders including President Trump to do the same. We commend the Republican Attorneys General Association for issuing a statement and appreciate our shared commitment to confront hate and strengthen our states and our country.
