Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Sunday refused to say if President Trump's statements that "many sides" were responsible for violence in Charlottesville, Va. during a white supremacist rally reflect American values.
In an interview with "Fox News Sunday," Tillerson was pressed by host Chris Wallace about the United Nations condemning Trump's comments that "many sides" were responsible for the violence in Charlottesville. A woman protesting white supremacists was killed when a man who identified with a neo-Nazi group drove his vehicle into a crowd, injuring dozens of others.
Tillerson said there should be no doubt about whether the American people or the American government believes in the country's founding values that all people are created equal.
"I don't believe anyone doubts the American's people values or the commitment of the American government or the government's agencies to advance those values and to defend those values," he said.
Wallace responded, "And the president's values?"
"The president speaks for himself, Chris," Tillerson said.
