Statement on hate groups and reports of a rally in Lexington: https://t.co/Ywf4u3mfYf&mdash; Leader McConnell (@SenateMajLdr) August 16, 2017 Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did not name President Trump in a statement on Wednesday,&nbsp;but clearly&nbsp;sought to distance&nbsp;the Republican Party from the White House's position&nbsp;on white supremacists.&ldquo;We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred," McConnell said in statement.&nbsp;"There are no good neo-Nazis, and those&nbsp;who espouse their views&nbsp;are not supporters of American ideals and freedoms. We all have a responsibility to stand against hate and violence, wherever it raises its evil head.&rdquo;Organizers of the Charlottesville, Va.,&nbsp;white nationalist rally that erupted in violence over the weekend are planning another event in Lexington, Ky., challenging&nbsp;the majority leader in his home state.Further rallies threaten to deepen the&nbsp;schism in the GOP between Trump, who has sought to defend some of those who participated in the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville,&nbsp;and Republicans who are reeling from the spectacle of the party of Lincoln being connected with known hate groups.The issue may also be more personal for McConnell, whose Taiwan-born&nbsp;wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, was beside&nbsp;Trump as&nbsp;his infrastructure news&nbsp;conference Tuesday erupted in a&nbsp;fiery defense of some of those marching Saturday."White&nbsp;supremacist, KKK, and&nbsp;neo-Nazi&nbsp;groups who brought&nbsp;hatred and violence to Charlottesville are now planning a rally in Lexington," McConnell said. "Their messages of hate and bigotry are not welcome in Kentucky and should not be welcome anywhere in America."McConnell did not directly criticize&nbsp;Trump, perhaps hesitant&nbsp;to launch a full-scale&nbsp;confrontation with the president or&nbsp;alienate his supporters.
