Retired Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., spoke out against Nazis in a tweet.

Dingell, now 91 after a 60-year career in the House of Representatives, was apparently speaking in response to the Saturday white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., which resulted in violence that resulted in three deaths.

On Sunday, Dingell sent another tweet, saying that President Donald Trump not denouncing "radical terrorism" in the Charlottesville incident makes him "complicit" in the event.

The retired congressman and former Texas Rep. Ralph Hall, R-Texas, are the only two living World War II veterans who have served in Congress, according to Mediaite.

Dingell has criticized the president before. On Aug. 3, Dingell slammed Trump during his working vacation at his New Jersey golf club.
