President Trump assails 'publicity seeking' Lindsey Graham

Most signs on Robert E. Lee Road in South Austin were spray painted over Monday morning following the deadly gathering of white supremacists in Charlottesville Virginia

Yet few mentioned the president.

Pressured by advisers, Trump had softened his words on the dispute on Monday (Tuesday NZ Time), but returned to his combative stance Tuesday (Wednesday NZT) - insisting during an unexpected and contentious news conference at Trump Tower that "both sides" were to blame.

The statements reflect the party establishment's delicate dance.

Roughly half of those symbols - 718 of them as of a year ago - are monuments and statues.

Trump's response to Charlottesville has deepened divisions within the Republican party.

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, saying the South Carolinian falsely accused him of offering "moral equivalency" between the KKK, neo-Nazis, and and other white supremacist groups who counter-protested the hate groups.

Trump on Thursday called Graham a "publicity seeking" lawmaker and tweeted that Graham's contention that the president had said there was "moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists and people like Ms. Heyer" was a "disgusting lie".

Heather Heyer, 32, was killed in Charlottesville on Saturday when a suspected white nationalist drove his auto into a crowd protesting the far-right march. He just can't forget his election trouncing.

Members of the strategy and policy group, led by Blackstone chief executive Stephen Schwarzman, concluded after a 45-minute conference call in the morning that they would end the council and announce their decision in a statement, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

It certainly seems as if the media finally found its proof that President Trump is a racist. There are not MANY SIDES to hatred and white supremacy. "That's why I went to Congress". "You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent", Trump said. "Trump has zero fault here".

The delicate relationship helps explain Wednesday's cautious comments from powerful Republicans like McConnell. "(Communities of color) are desensitized because he's said so much about us in the past".

"Their messages of hate and bigotry are not welcome in Kentucky and should not be welcome anywhere in America", he said.

The resolution asks to censure Trump for his "inadequate response to the violence" and "failure to immediately and specifically name and condemn the white supremacist groups responsible for actions of domestic terrorism".

"I think it is important for all those in positions of responsibility to condemn far-right views wherever we hear them", British Prime Minister Theresa May said.

Senator Marco Rubio said the organizers of the white supremacist march "are adherents of an evil ideology which argues certain people are inferior because of race, ethnicity or nation of origin". The Senate voted to censure President Andrew Jackson in 1834 for trying to dismantle the Bank of the United States. No Republicans have signed on.

"We've always had these weak skittish so-called Republicans in the D.C. crowd".

Okay. Trump is denouncing the tragedy but he's blaming "many sides".

German Justice Minister Heiko Maas said it was "intolerable how Trump is now glossing over the violence of the right-wing hordes from Charlottesville".
