BEIJING (Reuters) - Joseph Dunford, the Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Thursday there was absolutely and unambiguously no place for bigotry in the United States military.

Dunford made the remarks while speaking to reporters in Beijing, where he was asked to denounce racial intolerance in the United States.

U.S. President Donald Trump has come under bipartisan pressure for remarks that blamed violence in Virginia city at the weekend not only on white nationalists but also on the anti-racism activists who opposed them.
