National view: GOP leaders must overcome their timidity and denounce Trump

21 Août 2017

GOP strategists say Corker was likely unhappy with Trump's improvised line a week and a half ago about how threats from North Korea "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".

The Charlottesville rally that degenerated into bloody clashes and led to the death of one counter-protester, Ms Heather Heyer, last Saturday was spurred by the planned removal of a statue of a general of the pro-slavery Confederacy, Robert E. Lee.

Also, 68% of approvers over 55 years old say they won't stop supporting Trump, along with 67% of approvers who have a high school degree or less and 67% of approvers who make under $50,000 per year.

Bro's daughter, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, was killed and 19 others were injured when the driver rammed a auto into a crowd of demonstrators. Such a disgusting lie. "So this is not war against Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham, this is war against the entire Republican Senate".

Trump blamed "both sides" for the violence in the Virginia city at a news conference earlier this week, drawing an equivalency between white supremacists and neo-Nazis with those protesting them. "We are working on identifying a time that is convenient for the family to speak with the President".

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

Steve Bannon, chief strategist to President Donald Trump, is leaving his White House post, according to a source close to the situation.

Cette attaque, revendiquée par l'organisation terroriste Etat islamique , a fait au moins 13 morts et 120 blessés. Ils ont en outre blessé au visage une personne qui se trouvait sur les lieux, avant d'être abattus.

Under fire for defending racist activist groups, USA president Donald Trump has said on Twitter that he was "sad" to see United States's history torn apart by the removal of "our handsome statues and monuments,".

"No, I'll be reaching out", Trump said. House Speaker Paul Ryan charged that, "White supremacy is repulsive".

But so far, not all local Republicans are willing to take aim at President Trump, whose response to the violence has been widely denounced in Washington.

On Monday President Trump specifically denounced white nationalist groups involved in Saturday's violence, seeking to clarify comments he made over the weekend.

To close his statement, Congressman Cohen said, "It is morally and legally incumbent upon me, based on my oath of office, to introduce articles of impeachment".

The senator went on to question whether Trump understands the "character of this nation", and suggested that the president's many deficiencies have put the country at "great peril". "I have no problems with that", Lee said. There is nothing "white supremacist" about Trump's tweets regarding the statues. We are going to fulfill the promise of Donald Trump. And how we view history inevitably changes from generation to generation, and should, whether we remove monuments or not.

"Any time he steps up and tries to equate two groups or two conversations, I think that muddies the water", Lankford said of Trump.
