Time for GOP leaders to stand up to Trump

'Your Words are Dividing America,' Graham Tells Trump

Polling numbers indicated that the public remains uneasy about Trump's ability to handle the North Korea situation - 59% said they are uneasy about his ability to do so, while 38% said they have confidence.

An Ohio man with white supremacist ties is accused of driving his vehicle into a crowd, killing one woman and injuring 19 other people.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who late last month cast the decisive vote against a "skinny" ObamaCare repeal bill, one of Trump's top priorities, also came to Flake's side.

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.

"Such a disgusting lie", he continued.

Other Republicans, including the most powerful in Congress, have been making strong statements on Charlottesville and racism, but few have been mentioning Trump himself. "[Graham] just can't forget his election trouncing".

As a growing number of American cities worked to remove statues commemorating the Confederacy, President Donald Trump defended the statues again Thursday, arguing that removing them uproots American "culture" and history.

President Trump went on a Thursday tweetstorm against the removal of Confederate statues across the country, saying the "history and culture" of the United States is "being ripped apart".

Vermont's Republican governor says President Donald Trump "fanned the flame" of hate with his comments equating Nazis and white supremacists with people who were protesting against them in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend.

"The hatred and violence by White Supremacists in Charlottesville must be condemned". House Speaker Paul Ryan charged that, "White supremacy is repulsive".

"The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability, nor some of the competence, that he needs to demonstrate in order for him to be successful - and our nation and our world needs for him to be successful, whether you are Republican or Democrat".

Criticism was similar to that targeted against him previous year weeks before the presidential election, after publishing a video that was seen as an inappropriate for a person who is on his way to the White House.

"I offer my deepest condolences to the family of Heather Heyer, and I will continue to pray for all of those affected by the tragedy in Charlottesville", Foxx said. In May, after reports that Trump repeated classified information about the Islamic State during an Oval Office meeting with Russian officials, Corker said the White House was in a "downward spiral" and needed to "bring itself under control and order".

In sum, I disagree with the thrust of Trump's tweets. "I, along with many others, do not endorse this moral equivalency", Graham said. Do we need to give you a history lesson?? While it might seem jarring for the president who boasts that Republicans are "the party of Abraham Lincoln" to speak warmly of "beautiful" statues of Robert E Lee, it wouldn't be the first time intellectual coherence has taken a back seat to political expediency.

Trump's first target was SC senator Lindsey Graham, who had urged the president a day earlier to unite the nation.
