Rep. James Clyburn attributed the 2015 shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, to former President Donald Trump, linking Trump’s statements to the attack.

During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Clyburn connected Trump’s remarks before and during the Charlottesville incident to the church shooting, emphasizing the young man’s intention to create a race war and the community’s efforts to move beyond hate.

Clyburn pointed to Trump’s comments about “good people on both sides” in Charlottesville as evidence linking him to the events at Mother Emanuel. (Trending: Chilling Arrest Footage of Trump Co-Defendant Provides Glimpse Into Jack Smith Probe)

“Is it fair to tie in any way what happened at the Emanuel AME Church to Donald Trump?” Tapper asked.

“Donald Trump had barely launched his campaign when that attack happened.”

“I think it is very clear that Donald Trump’s utterances way back before Charlottesville or at the time of Charlottesville ties him to what happened at Mother Emanuel,” Clyburn said.

“The fact of the matter is, that young man went into that church’s basement, joined with those worshipers in Bible study, and murdered them.”

“And he said at the time that he was attempting to create a race war. But the people of Charleston, South Carolina, the families of the affected victims all came together to get beyond hate and reach out to help continue this pursuit of a more perfect union,” he added.

“Donald Trump looked at those people in Charlottesville and said that there were good people on both sides. And those people were uttering things like, ‘Jews will not replace us.’ That is a religion.”

“The AME Church Emanuel, that is religion. And Donald Trump has said things in support of those activities that ties him closely to what happened at Mother Emanuel.”
