Multiple Republican senators called the car crash in Charlottesville, Va., that left one dead Saturday an incident of domestic terrorism and at least one criticized President Trump for not doing the same.
Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner called out Trump for saying "many sides" are responsible for the violence in Charlottesville, Va., that left one dead and 19 injured after a car drove into a crowd.
"What 'WhiteNatjonalist (sic)' are doing in Charlottesville is homegrown terrorism that can't be tolerated anymore," he tweeted.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said it's important for the nation to hear Trump call the white supremacists at the rally white supremacists.
"Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists," Rubio tweeted.
