He also says there are no good neo-nazis and people who do share their views do not support American ideals and freedoms.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky issued a statement Wednesday condemning white supremacist groups and their messages of hatred which he said have no place in Kentucky or America.

"We all have a responsibility to stand against hate and violence, wherever it raises its evil head", McConnell said in the statement.
