Michael Moore and other celebrities like Rob Reiner and Rosie O’Donnell were quick to blame President Donald Trump for the violence that broke out Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“Trump’s America: The last days of White rule. It’s always a bitch to have to give up power you’ve held for 300 years,” the 63-year-old filmmaker tweeted after riots broke out in the city during a white nationalist rally between white supremacists and counter protesters. (RELATED: Michael Moore And Other Celebs Blast Trump Over Exiting Paris Climate Accord)

“Let’s be clear. The hatred we’re seeing in Virginia lies at the feet of Donald Trump. Stoked during the campaign, his silence condones this,” Rob Reiner tweeted.

Trump has since tweeted that there’s no “place for this kind of violence in America.” (RELATED: Trump Condemns Hatred And Bigotry ‘On Many Sides’ Following Violence In Virginia)

“We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one,” the president tweeted.
