WASHINGTON D.C. — The Republican National Committee (RNC) unanimously approved a resolution condemning white supremacy on Friday while at its summer meeting in Nashville, Tennessee.

The resolution was made in response to the Aug. 12 Charlottesville rally by white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK in which counter-protester Heather Heyer was killed when, authorities say, a man affiliated with white supremacists ran a car through a crowd.

The resolution made no reference to President Trump or his comments that "both sides" were responsible for the violence in Charlottesville.

"This has nothing to do with the president," said Bill Palatucci, an RNC committee member from New Jersey, who sponsored the resolution, as reported by The Washington Post. "This is the RNC saying that racism and bigotry have no place in America."

Most of the resolution talks about the history of the Republican Party, its founding during the fight against slavery, and its "rejection of the racial beliefs underlying the institution of slavery." It also make the debatable claim that the party "subsequently led the fight to assure" all people have equal rights.

While the resolution does not mention the president, it implicitly rejects Trump's position by condemning white supremacists without also denouncing the anti-racist protesters.

The Democratic National Committee was not impressed by the RNC resolution.

"The Republican Party, led by President Trump, has cultivated a culture of hate through their rhetoric and policies," said DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa, in the Post report. "A vote on a resolution doesn't fix the systemic problems within the Republican Party. When will they take responsibility, denounce racism and stop pursuing divisive policies like voter identification laws and extreme immigration reforms?"
