The Republican National Committee officially denounced white supremacists in a formal resolution on Friday, The Hill reported.

The resolution came as many party members remained uncomfortable with President Donald Trump's remarks following the violence at a rally of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, according to the Hill.

The resolution says "the racist beliefs of Nazis, the KKK, white supremacists and other like-minded groups are completely inconsistent with the Republican Party's platform" and "have no fruitful place in the United States."

Bill Palatucci, an RNC committeeman from New Jersey, sponsored the resolution. He maintained it was important for the RNC to make it clear that it condemns white supremacists.

"It's always important to quickly and clearly denounce racism and bigotry whenever we see it," he said. "As a member of the RNC, I wanted no ambiguity that the organization condemned these white supremacists," Palatucci told the Hill.
