Graham: Trump's Charlottesville rhetoric 'dividing Americans, not healing them'

17 Août 2017

In his first daybreak tweet, Trump attacked Senator Lindsey Graham as a "publicity-seeking" lawmaker and attacked him for saying "falsely" there was "moral equivalency" between the hate groups and anti-fascists.

Graham issued a statement Wednesday in response to the president's most recent comments about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

Lindsey Graham and claimed the South Carolina Republican misstated his remarks about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. "(Heather) Heyer", Trump wrote, referencing a woman killed when a auto drove into a crowd of protesters.

"Your words are dividing Americans, not healing them", Graham said. "He just can't forget his election trouncing. The people of SC will remember!"

20, an alleged Nazi sympathizer, plowed a auto into a crowd of activists in Charlottesville, and ended up killing one person and injuring 19.

Referring to Heather Heyer, who was killed when an alt-right protester allegedly rammed his auto into a crowd of counter-protesters, Trump said Graham was falsely saying he had morally equivocated between her and white supremacist organizations. "Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch", the president said Tuesday, not explaining how he reached that conclusion.

The Canadian government has also announced new speed restrictions for ships, something which has been implemented in the USA too. Davies said right whales are a part of Nova Scotia's heritage and their dwindling numbers should be a big concern.

The first-term senator has also recently released a book criticizing Trump and fellow Republicans for straying from what he called conservative values.

"The public is learning (even more so) how dishonest the Fake News is", Trump wrote. "Do they have any semblance of guilt?" he asked reporters.

President Trump attacked two members of Congress early Thursday, potentially complicating his already contentious relationship with the Senate. "You had a group on one side and the other and they came at each other with clubs and it was vicious and disgusting".

Former KKK leader David Duke, meanwhile, thanked Trump for his "honesty and courage". Trump also said that not everyone who participated in the white nationalist rally, which was to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, was a bad person.

The Rev. John Mendez harshly criticized the Rev. Franklin Graham on Monday as a "liar and hypocrite" after Graham blamed the Charlottesville City Council and Satan for the violence that happened there Saturday at a white supremacist rally.
