Governor Cuomo today released the following statement calling on President Trump to denounce white supremacists and is asking all concerned New Yorkers and others to sign a petition.

"After the deadly and ugly events in Charlottesville I am calling on President Trump to clearly and unequivocally condemn and denounce the violent protest organized by the white supremacists and neo-Nazis, including Richard Spencer and Jason Kessler, with support from David Duke. President Trump must immediately call this for what it is - no cover, no euphemisms. 

"This was a terror attack by white supremacists. 

"Join me in signing a petition demanding that President Trump acknowledges this hate for what it is: Domestic terrorism willfully perpetrated by white supremacists. 

"While President Trump is back in New York today - let's remind him: hate has no sides and violence has no place."
