U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson condemns racism, calls for national reconciliation

With the United States President Donald Trump increasingly isolated over his response to the violence in Virginia, that sparked from a white supremacy rally, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson issued a broad condemnation of racism and promised to make his department more racially diverse. Trump is facing a widening backlash among fellow Republicans, business leaders and even sports stars since the violence last Saturday, in the Virginia city of Charlottesville arising from a rally by white nationalists.
