21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch blasted Donald Trump in a memo sent Thursday to company employees, calling out the president for his tepid response to a deadly rally by neo-Nazis and white supremacists last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“These events remind us all why vigilance against hate and bigotry is an eternal obligation — a necessary discipline for the preservation of our way of life and our ideals,” wrote Murdoch, the younger son of company founder Rupert Murdoch who assumed the CEO position in 2015.
James Murdoch also pledged to personally donate $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League.
“I can’t even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen, or terrorists,” he continued in his memo. “Democrats, Republicans, and others must all agree on this, and it compromises nothing for them to do so.”
