Trump calls removal of Confederate monuments 'so foolish'

Trump calls removal of Confederate monuments 'so foolish'

But she said "now I will not" talk to the president after a news conference in which Mr Trump equated violence by white supremacists at the rally with violence by those protesting against the rally.

The mother of a 32-year-old woman who was killed in the racist violence in Virginia has said she will not speak to US President Donald Trump despite having received a number of calls from the White House.

President Donald Trump took a swing at his favorite punching bag today, claiming his comments about the deadly violence in Charlottesville were misrepresented by media. "He just can't forget his election trouncing.The people of SC will remember!"

Trump came out Monday and specifically condemned white supremacist groups like neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan after only criticizing "many sides" on Saturday.

The president said there is "blame on both sides" for the violence that occurred at the "Unite the Right" rally.

"I, along with many others, do not endorse this moral equivalency", Graham said in the statement.

"Do they have any semblance of guilt?"

Flake and Graham have been among the most vocal critics of Trump in Congress and Flake is one of the most vulnerable Republicans up for re-election in the 2018 midterms, when the GOP hopes to hold its slim lead in the Senate. "If we can throw tax cuts into the mix, I think this economy can absolutely take off, and then I think we'd see those poll numbers rebound very, very quickly for the president".

Following intense backlash over his initial refusal to name and condemn the hate groups involved, the President defiantly insisted there were "very fine people" marching alongside the neo-Nazis and Klansmen.

Trump continued to discuss the theme of Lee's statue - whose planned removal sparked the white nationalist rally - in more tweets Thursday morning.

Health experts say it has sparked awareness of the foods we eat in restaurants, but while it has previously been attacked by big food chains, now President Trump's FDA is getting involved.

Lee commanded the Army of Northern Virginia and General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson was one of his top lieutenants, while George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were among the Founding Fathers of the United States. "Thank you all!" Mr Trump tweeted from NY.

"They tried to kill my child to shut her up, but guess what, you just magnified her", Bro had said during the service, prompting an ovation lasting almost a minute and a half.

"I can absolutely and unambiguously tell you that there's no place for racism and bigotry in the U.S. military or in the United States as a whole", General Joe Dunford, the chairman of the USA joint chiefs of staff, said.
