Spicer apologises for hitler comments about syria attacks
In a speech before a joint session of Congress today, President Donald Trump said he regrets making his inflammatory and inflammatory comments last night about “viciously targeted” anti-fascists, calling the protesters on the grounds that they were using a different name.
“Today, in our democracy, words matter.” he said. “It’s our duty to use the proper name, not the name given to us by a neo-Nazi group, but the name given to us.”
Trump has claimed repeatedly that white supremacists were to blame for the deadly terrorist attacks in Charlottesville that killed one person and injured 20 others in the US city last weekend.

However, Spicer did say he was speaking on behalf of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer when he referred to “other hate groups”, and this time, he did not mention neo-Nazis by name.
“These groups use that same name – as do others I know are fighting for the American Dream. The American people deserve
