ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP/WBOC)- Maryland's Republican governor has criticized President Donald J. Trump's comments blaming "both sides" for racially charged violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Hogan made the remarks Wednesday after a meeting of the Board of Public Works, of which he is a member. He says he thinks Trump "made a terrible mistake."

The governor says Maryland will continue to condemn hatred, bigotry and violence. On Tuesday, he called for the removal of a statue of the Supreme Court justice who wrote a decision upholding slavery that sits on the front lawn of the State House.

Hogan says he called Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe over the weekend to offer Maryland's "full support."

Hogan is governor in a state with a Democrat-controlled General Assembly.
