The Wall Street Journal: Pence goes further than Trump in denouncing hate groups

CARTAGENA, Colombia — Vice President Mike Pence was more explicit than President Donald Trump in condemning far-right hate groups, commenting on violent Virginia protests during a visit here after Trump drew widespread criticism for not explicitly disavowing those organizations.

“We have no tolerance for hate and violence from white supremacists, neo-Nazis or the KKK,” Pence said Sunday night. “These dangerous fringe groups have no place in American public life or in the American debate and we condemn them in the strongest possible terms,” he added.
