Sen. Tim Kaine said Sunday that heated discussions about Confederate monuments shouldn't only be about "subtraction," but about honoring those "whose stories haven't been told."

In an interview on CBS News' "Face The Nation," the Virginia Democrat and former governor said, "it's important that we look at it this way, it's not just about subtraction, it also has to be about addition."

"Let's also talk about whose stories that haven't been told and what buildings or monuments we might think about erecting in the future," he said.

The 2016 nominee for vice president also warned Democrats will have to avoid painting with "broad brushes" — like the"deplorables" comment Hillary Clinton used to describe some President Donald Trump supporters.

"We ought to throw away all the broad brushes, you know?" he said. "And we need — we need to be very precise."

"It's really important, you have to condemn the intolerable…" he added. "But you have to be very specific about what you're condemning. … you have to do it in a way that suggests that you're open to dialogue with people who have different points of view than you do."
