Former presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush released a statement Wednesday condemning the white-supremacist rally on display last weekend.

America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms," the statement read. "As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city's most prominent citizen in the Declaration of Independence."

Other prominent Republicans, including former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Senator Marco Rubio, from Florida, have condemned the "Unite the Right" rally as well.
