President Donald Trump on Thursday denounced the removal of monuments to Confederate figures as "sad" and "so foolish", days after white supremacists and neo-Nazis took to Charlottesville, Virginia, to violently protest the planned removal of a statue.
A new CBS poll is showing a major partisan divide in how President Trump's remarks on Charlottesville are being received across the country.
"I was so exhausted I don't remember saying something nice or derogatory about him", she said. NBC's headline read: "Democratic, Republican Lawmakers Decry Trump's Latest Charlottesville Remarks".
The experts who jointly signed the statement are Sabelo Gumedze, Chairperson of the Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent; Mutuma Ruteere, Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance; and Ms Anastasia Crickley, Chairperson of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Graham "just can't forget his election trouncing", Trump wrote, then writing what sounded like a threat: "The people of SC will remember!" Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch. "None of the marchers spewing such verbiage could be considered 'very fine people" as the president suggested".
The president has come under criticism for blasting "both sides" of the Sunday clashes, in which a driver plowed into demonstrators protesting against white supremacists in Charlottesville, killing a young woman and injuring some 20 others.
Duke thanked Trump via Twitter, praising the president for his "honesty and courage".

Their resolution specifically cites Trump comments blaming "many sides" for the violence in Virginia and his failure to say white supremacists or neo-Nazis were responsible for "domestic terrorism", according to ABC News. "Robert E Lee. Stonewall Jackson - who's next, Washington, Jefferson?"
The monuments, Landrieu said "are not just innocent remembrances of a benign history".
He also tore into fellow Republicans Lindsey Graham of SC and Jeff Flake of Arizona who have criticized his statements on race and politics, fanning the controversy toward a full-fledged national conflagration. You had a group on one side that was bad.
Members of organised neo-Nazi and so-called "Alt-Right" groups had called a rally to protest the removal of a Confederate statue there.
"No, I'll be reaching out", Trump said. The move followed Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.
In a separate tweet, Trump accused "the Fake News" of distorting "what I say about hate, bigotry, etc. Shame!" Do they have any semblance of guilt?.
Bro told ABC on Friday morning she did not want to speak with Trump but that she missed a few calls, the first of which seemed to come during Heyer's funeral.
Trump has drawn fire for not speaking out forcefully enough against white supremacists.
