Fact check: Trump does what he accuses media of doing

Fact check: Trump does what he accuses media of doing”

Just like they don't want to report that I spoke out forcefully against hatred, bigotry and violence and strongly condemned the neo-nazis, the white supremacists and the KKK.

Many critics believed that by saying "many sides", Trump was trying to blame both the white supremacists and the counter-protesters for the violence, instead of singling out hate groups like the KKK and neo-Nazis for condemnation.

"I want to applaud the many protestors in Boston who are speaking out against bigotry and hate", he said.

President Trump railed against the news media on Tuesday in a fiery, campaign-style speech, in which he defended his statements in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Va., earlier this month.

Christie said Trump should be forgiven if he asks for it, and that is now up to him "to continue to have a dialogue with the American people on this issue and lots of other issues". The New York Times wrote their subscribers a letter after the election essentially promising to double down on coverage of the Trump presidency.

That's the truth. If you watched that speech as an American, you had to be thinking, 'What in the world is going on?' This is the person we elected as the president of the United States? That is a lie.

As for O'Reilly, he said that Trump came across as "insensitive" because of his remarks.

"You had a group on one side that was bad". According to reporters I interviewed on the scene, every alt-right zealot came armed with an AK-47, handgun, shield, or club - clearly intending to spark a violent confrontation.

Donald Trump says you can't be for George Washington yet against Robert E. Lee because, in the words of an email circulated by Trump attorney John Dowd, "there literally is no difference between the two men". Oh, yes there is. I got the white supremacist, the neo-Nazi. That's the biggest lie of all, which disgusted nearly everybody but former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, who immediately thanked Trump "for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about Charlottesville".

Trump was at his golf club in New Jersey during a 17-day working vacation when the violence erupted in Charlottesville, claiming the life of one anti-racist protester who was hit by a vehicle driven by a man who attended the white supremacist demonstrations.

When former Republican presidents George H.W. and George W. Bush criticize your comments about a race riot and David Duke praises them, you should know there's something wrong.

By his response to Charlottesville, I believe Donald Trump has done more than re-ignite flames of racial hatred.

Afterward, he spent about 20 minutes greeting service members in the stifling heat, signing caps with his "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan and posing for selfies on the tarmac just steps from Air Force One. We can't ignore it any longer. During his presidential campaign, Mr Trump repeatedly questioned the goal of the US's involvement in Afghanistan. I've taken my stand. While quoting himself, Trump did not mention his remark that "there's blame on both sides". "There aren't good people on the neo-Nazi side".

In standard Trump-rally fashion, the president lauded his accomplishments but also noted North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un might have renewed respect for the U.S.in light of their oral showdown over Guam in recent weeks.
