House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., on Tuesday repeated his statement about working together to "defeat white supremacy and all forms of hatred," following President Donald Trump's press conference.

Trump doubled down on his initial statement regarding the violence in Charlottesville, Va., and blamed "many sides" for the unrest, which started when white nationalists clashed with counter protestors.

Scalise on Sunday tweeted: "I'm disgusted by the violence and killing that took place in Charlottesville, and by the white supremacist bigotry that inspired it. There must be no tolerance for racism in our nation, we must work together as Americans and human beings to defeat white supremacy and all forms of hatred."

"My prayers are with the loved ones of Heather Heyer, Lt. H. Jay Cullen, and trooper-pilot Berke M. M. Bates, who tragically died as a result of this evil," he continued.
