(Newser) – They can't agree on much—but they're pretty clear that they don't like Nazis and the KKK. A resolution condemning white supremacist groups and the "domestic terrorist attack" in Charlottesville last month passed the Senate unanimously Monday night, the Hill reports. The measure, introduced by a bipartisan group of senators last week, calls for President Trump to denounce white supremacist organizations and "address the growing prevalence of those hate groups in the United States." It also urges federal authorities to investigate acts of violence or intimidation by white nationalist groups to prevent them "from fomenting and facilitating additional violence."
