Soothing The Nation? Trump Struggles Like No Other President

Susan Bro, Heyer's mother, said Friday that calls from the White House were made during Heyer's funeral on Wednesday, a charge that White House aides have so far failed to respond to.

By a almost 2-to-1 ratio, voters surveyed in a Marist College/PBS/NPR poll said Trump's response to the violence was "not strong enough".

His comments ignited a storm of criticism. While Trump condemned the neo-Nazi and white supremacists who protested, he insisted there were "very fine people" among those protesting the removal of Lee's statue in Charlottesville.

"We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred".

Out of sight, but still online, Trump tweeted his defense of monuments to Confederate icons - bemoaning rising efforts to remove them as an attack on America's "history and culture". "We all have a responsibility to stand against hate and violence, wherever it raises its evil head", McConnell said.

Joseph Dunford said we are mostly focused on the threat coming out of North Korea. In a meeting earlier in the day, Dunford and Adm.

Grijalva and Pocan called Trump out for his "appalling and shameful reluctance to name the groups involved in the attacks" until days after the murder of Charlottesville resident Heather Heyer-declaring, "Mr. President, it shouldn't take you two days to build up the courage to condemn violent neo-Nazis and the KKK".

Trump has alienated Republicans, corporate leaders and USA allies, rattled markets and prompted speculation about possible White House resignations with his comments since Saturday's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, which came in the aftermath of a white nationalist protest against the removal of a Confederate statue.

In his comments at a heated news conference in NY on Tuesday, Trump said "there is blame on both sides" of the violence in Charlottesville, and that there were "very fine people" on both sides.

Sen. Tim Scott of SC said Trump's "moral authority is compromised". Bob Corker of Tennessee said Thursday the president has not shown he knows "the character of the nation".

Krzanich also said he called on leaders to condemn the white supremacists who participated in the Virginia rally. "I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism", Frazier said .

Heyer was being remembered on Wednesday at a memorial service in Charlottesville. "So foolish!" The clashes in the college town that is home to University of Virginia climaxed when a auto rammed into a crowd of counter-protesters.

Trump hit back at a favorite target later Thursday morning, the media: "The public is learning (even more so) how dishonest the Fake News is".

"We expect our presidents to speak in a manner that is morally clear and consistent with the values of the country", Jamieson said. It was soon followed by another tweet suggesting people study "what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught", an apparent reference to a tale he has shared in the past that the fact-checking site Politifact has rated as dubious. "You can't change history, but you can learn from it", Trump wrote on Twitter, refusing to move past the controversy.

Their comments followed similar ones from the top officers of the Navy and Marine Corps. The tension felt between white Nationalists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville stemmed from the city considering the removal of a statue dedicated to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Some wore helmets. Counter-protesters came equipped with sticks, helmets and shields.

The party has been looking to answer Trump's populism by crafting its own middle-class brand, yet Democratic leaders across multiple states now are pushing to take down Old South monuments like the one that ostensibly sparked the events in Charlottesville, and three rank-and-file House Democrats want to pursue a congressional censure of the president.
