U.S. President Donald Trump finally responded publicly to the violence that erupted in Virginia, hours after a rally Saturday by white supremacists ignited chaos and resulted in one death and dozens of injuries.

Instead of calling out neo-Nazis or racists, Trump blamed those on "many sides."

He said: "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides ― on many sides. It's been going on for a long time in our country, not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, it's been going on for a long, long time."

Actor Chris Evans, best known for his role as "Captain America," summed it up:

Thanks, Cap.
