After Trump press conference, Paul Ryan says white supremacy is 'repulsive'

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) tweeted Tuesday afternoon, not long after President Trump blamed "both sides" for the violence that broke out over the weekend at a white supremacist rally in Virginia, that it must be made clear that "white supremacy is repulsive."

Ryan said such "bigotry is counter to all this country stands for," and "there can be no moral ambiguity." Many of the responses Ryan received came from people calling him out for supporting Trump and his agenda, and asking when he is going to start impeachment proceedings.
