H.R. McMaster Calls Charlottesville Attack ‘Terrorism’

President Donald Trump's national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster, called the deadly attack on protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia an act of terrorism. “Certainly I think we can confidently call it a form of terrorism,” he said on NBC’s Meet The Press. “What terrorism is, is the use of violence to incite terror and fear, and of course it was terrorism.” Trump was vague about the attack, choosing to blame “many sides” for violence. McMaster refused three times to answer whether or not he could work with Steve Bannon, the president's chief strategist and self-proclaimed godfather of the alt-right.
