Charlottesville Victim's Mother Says She Will Not Take Trump's Calls

Charlottesville Victim's Mother Says She Will Not Take Trump's Calls

Meanwhile, support for Trump among the business community and moderates is disintegrating in the face of his widely criticized reaction to the tragedy.

In less than one week, President Donald Trump has drawn fierce, bipartisan condemnation for all but defending white nationalists behind the violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia. Instead of calling the situation for what it was - a hate crime perpetrated by racist white supremacists - President Trump said the violence was from "many sides".

Many in the evangelical Christian community condemned the neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacists who marched in the University of Virginia town before one of them plowed through a crowd of counter-protesters and killed a 32-year-old woman. He said "many sides" were to blame and that there were "very fine people" on both sides. I'm sorry. After what he said about my child.it's not that I saw somebody else's tweets about him.

When the president of the United States seems to support these white nationalist hate groups, he dishonors the millions of courageous souls who defended our nation from their hatred.

"I think that this presidency is unraveling before our eyes", Carson said. Indeed. Given a binary choice of whether the alt-right or counter-protesters bears most of the blame for the violence, people are far more likely to blame the alt-right.

The War Between the States has shaped relations between whites and blacks in the country ever since.A handful of cities has removed some of the 718 statues honoring the Confederacy's warriors, while others are considering taking them down.

Barty will face former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki , a 6-2, 6-4 victor against Russia's Elena Vesnina , in the last 16. I could have easily pulled the plug in the second set, but I'm not going to retire just because I'm exhausted .

Randy Hardock, who worked for Sen. Graham "just can't forget his election trouncing", Trump wrote, then writing what sounded like a threat: "The people of SC will remember!"

In a flurry of tweets, Trump also defended the presence of Confederate monuments.

Members of the Strategy and Policy group, led by Blackstone CEO 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. We can not pretend President Trump's reaction to this tragedy was anything less than a dog whistle to white supremacists.

"No, I'll be reaching out", Trump said. Trump has "a history and a habit of minimizing groups of people", he said.

"When I watched the videos from the protests in Charlottesville, it reminded me of the videos I've seen of Kristallnacht in 1938 in Nazi Germany". I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta help crush it, you know, uh, help crush it more.

He then harkened back to the 2016 GOP presidential primary, in which he cruised to the party's nomination while Graham never gained any traction.
