That's what CNN headline says. I hope this is fake news.

And the president says:

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides," Trump said during a short statement from his private golf club in New Jersey. "It has been going on for a long time in our country -- not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America."
The President did not mention white nationalists and the alt-right movement in his remarks, and later called for a "study" of the "situation."

I've been trying for years to find something supreme about the white supremacy movement that doesn't involve obesity, facial hair or a massive and needless chip on the shoulder. Haven't found anything yet.

comrade, it's nice of you to come out of hiding when there's a net total of 1 death to decry terrorism, but hide under the bed looking for excuses from 150 yrs ago when your buddies kill scores if not more.

Typical crocodile tears from the illiberal comrade. The double standards and hypocrisy of he and his ilk are amply evident on this forum.

To both of you - Repeating a lie does not make it true. This particular Trumpian tactic thus far has been proven a failure.

why numbers in this kind of crimes is the deterministic criterion, i never understood. if that one person killed was related to, or known or whatever, then it is as tragic as holocaust for the victimized/aggrieved - doesn't have to be glamorized with numbers in millions as in the former.

I think the label itself is very enamoring and infatuating to seduce young minds...instead it should be tagged as 'radicals' and such...

To just you - shedding crocodile tears repeatedly doesn't make them real. Your reptilian tactic is a proven failure and won't fool anybody.

“Certainly I think we can confidently call it a form of terrorism,” the adviser, H.R. McMaster, said on NBC's "Meet The Press."

“What terrorism is, is the use of violence to incite terror and fear, and of course it was terrorism.”

This is being consistent i.e. whether a Somalian-American youngster influenced by ISIS propaganda or a white American from Ohio influenced by alt-right, both acts, intended to harm American citizens should be treated as the same.
