ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's Republican governor has criticized President Donald J. Trump's comments blaming "both sides" for racially charged violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Hogan made the remarks Wednesday after a meeting of the Board of Public Works, of which he is a member. He says he thinks Trump "made a terrible mistake."
The Baltimore Sun reports that the governor says Maryland will continue to condemn hatred, bigotry and violence. On Tuesday, he called for the removal of a Confederate monument from the front lawn of the State House.
