Trump claims media 'misrepresent' his Charlottesville comments

Trump claims media 'misrepresent' his Charlottesville comments”

President Donald Trump decried American "history and culture" being ripped apart after ripping a pair of critical GOP lawmakers in a series of tweets Thursday morning.

"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our attractive statues and monuments", he wrote in a series of tweets. He also went out of his way to side with the supremacists against the removal of a statue of the Confederate general Robert E Lee - the ostensible cause of last weekend's clashes - suggesting this could presage similar action against memorials to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson since both were slave-owners.

"The President did everything he could today to defend and deflect criticism from the Alt-right white supremacist movement".

Heyer, 32, was killed Saturday when she was struck by a vehicle driven into the crowd by an OH man alleged to have far-right views.

Trump was much quicker Thursday to condemn violence in Barcelona, where more than a dozen people were killed when a van veered onto a sidewalk and sped down a busy pedestrian zone in what authorities called a terror attack.

"I disagree with the president and others who believe that there is a moral equivalence between white supremacists and Nazis, and those who oppose them by standing up for human rights".

This week there was a bad incident in Virginia at the home campus of the U. of VA which was founded and designed by Thomas Jefferson. But for the absolute avoidance of any presidential doubt, when the former head of the KKK thanks you for your "honesty and courage" in criticising "leftist terrorists" it is time to wake up and smell the mess you have landed yourself in.

Graham, a frequent critic of the President who unsuccessfully ran against him in the 2016 presidential primaries, warned Wednesday that Trump's rhetoric is "dividing Americans".

Speaking to reporters at Trump Tower in New York City, Trump denounced the "alt-left" protesters who he said "came charging" at a group of white supremacist rally goers.

This summer in the U.S. a new movie was released called Detroit. White House aides, for days, have said that Trump wanted to speak with the family but that they were working on the logistics of the call.

Sen. Tim Scott of SC said Trump's "moral authority is compromised".

We know that the "culture" of Confederacy Trump praises is white supremacy. "That's why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he's going to take our country back". "Our state needs his leadership now more than ever".

"It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the liberal media is not a fan of President Trump", said Trump's Alabama campaign chairman, Perry Hooper, arguing the Russian Federation investigation is driven by media obsession. Only one side chanted "Jews will not replace us" on Friday and followed it up with "F**k you faggots" on Saturday. But he did warn against letting fringe racists with "hate-filled mindsets" feed off controversy and hatred - "we can't let them hijack the narrative of who we are as Americans or redefine what kind of country this is".

Just when one thought his press conference could not get any more troubling, Hurricane Donald blew into a new area. In November, after a San Antonio police officer was shot and killed, Trump - then the president-elect - called his relatives the following day.

Trump also expressed distaste for removing statues of Confederate commanders in a heated news conference on Tuesday. South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, an early supporter of the president, said he "proudly" stands with Trump and said he was succeeding despite a "constant barrage of negative attacks from the left".
