WASHINGTON ― Several leading members of Trump's Republican Party and ally Britain sharply rebuked the president on Wednesday after he insisted that white nationalists and protesters opposed to them were both to blame for deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Trump blamed the violence on "many sides" of the Charlottesville conflict during a statement given from his suburban New Jersey golf club on Saturday.

Vice President Mike Pence yesterday said: "I stand with the president and I stand by those words". "Donald Trump's campaign message was that he would make America great again, and that there would be so much 'winning.' If America cares about being great, why has it fought so hard to keep monuments to the Confederate losers and enslavers?"

A 32-year-old woman was killed and 19 other people injured when an OH man suspected of being a white nationalist drove his auto into a crowd of counter-protesters.

If we talked about what happened in Charlottesville the way we talk about events in a foreign country, here's how Western media would cover it.

That leaves the rest of us to pick up the serious work of preventing this new uprising of white supremacists, racists and neo-Nazis from further unraveling this ragtag insane quilt of a nation we call America.

His niece Raquel Baron Lopez had earlier been appealing for information about him on Twitter after being unable to contact him. As the tragic news was confirmed his family said they would "remember his smiles and hold his memory dear to our hearts".

Majorities of Americans disapprove of the way President Donald Trump responded to the recent protest in Charlottesville, when he said both the white supremacist marchers and the counterdemonstrators were to blame.

Though we disagree with Dumeyer's conclusions about Trump's Charlottesville remarks, we'll say this: At least Dumeyer had the courage of his convictions to go public with his views.

"Helping inspire divisions because it generates support from your political base is not a formula for causing our nation to advance". I mean, could this just be something that will pass and the narrative that you saw more order and more discipline is something we're going to see in the coming weeks and months?

Throughout the day - including after the funeral - White House aides told reporters that they were working on a call.

"Whether there was violence on "both sides" or not is irrelevant", Bro said on Thursday.

Along with repealing Obamacare, Trump had promised tax reform and a $1 trillion plan to improve the country's infrastructure.

Trump lamented the "removal of our attractive statues" in response to several cities across the country taking down monuments to Confederate generals and figures.

The Hill reported Saturday that Republicans of all stripes are concerned that Trump's combative press conference and unwillingness to denounce neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan has undone years of outreach by the GOP to nonwhite voters.

"There is no room for celebrating the violent bigotry of the men of the Confederacy in the hallowed halls of the United States Capitol". "You can't change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson - who's next?"

Interviewing for this poll began the night before Trump's stunning news conference on Tuesday and continued for two nights after it.

He added: 'Also, the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!' He was referring to two Confederate generals in the Civil War that ended in 1865, and to early US presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who owned slaves but whose legacies are overwhelmingly honored. "We are working on identifying a time that is convenient for the family to speak with the President".

Democratic U.S. Senator Cory Booker wrote on Twitter he would introduce legislation to remove Confederate statues standing inside the U.S. Capitol, saying, "This is just one step".

There are groups in our society who are bigoted and filled with hate for anyone not considered a white person of European decent. Lee was born in 1807 and later distinguished himself in various battles during the US-Mexico War (1846-1848).

"Nothing has repealed the long-term demographic trends in this country, and nothing has changed the imperative for Republicans to appeal to a more diverse electorate if they hope to win national elections", said strategist and pollster Whit Ayres, a long-time advocate of the need for the party to modernize its appeal. Lindsey Graham over the President's response to racially motivated protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, continued Thursday, with the SC senator accusing Trump of stoking tensions, a claim Trump called "a disgusting lie".
