President Donald Trump dramatically shifted tone to make a plea for national unity one day after delivering an extended diatribe against the media and political opponents.
As of August 22, Phillips has made no public statement, either via official press release or social media, regarding Charlottesville.
He said: "They don't want to report that I spoke out forcefully against hatred, bigotry and violence and strongly condemned the Neo-Nazis, the white supremacists and the KKK". And none of the versions have been satisfactory. Let's hope that the next time tragedy strikes, he comes out on the right side. And you can put them all on one side-or if you prefer-a basket of deplorables.
Rasmussen also found 43 percent of black Americans and 42 percent of other minority voters are more likely than whites, at 38 percent, to think removal will only hurt relations. Trump didn't wait as long to cast blame for Barcelona as he did for Charlottesville.
The US President, speaking in Phoenix on Tuesday, said the media were "dishonest" in their portrayal of his response to the white supremacist protest in Virginia that led to the death of Heather Heyer earlier this month.
Behind the high-profile denunciations voiced this week by GOP senators once considered Trump allies, scores of other, influential Republicans began to express grave concerns about the state of the Trump presidency.
Accusations that a shadowy media elite are trying to chip away at "heritage" are a common complaint among neo-Nazis, who falsely insist the media is controlled by an anti-white Jewish conspiracy. David Duke is a very happy person. We are determined to take our country back. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. That's what we believed in.
Oil slips as market focus shifts
In early August, Kuwait Petroleum International sent the first of six shipments of crude oil to the Nghi Son refinery in Vietnam. West Texas Intermediate crude October contract was at $48.30 a barrel by 3:10AM ET (0710GMT), down 11 cents, or around 0.2%.
Merilyn Hursh of Forest Lake, Minnesota, agreed with President Trump that removing Confederate monuments may be just the first step in an attempt to go after monuments to other classic USA figures: "Do we go after [George] Washington and [Thomas] Jefferson?".
Rule of thumb: when hate groups, and KKK grand wizards, former or otherwise, support your words and actions, recognize that you are doing something entirely wrong. If you're having trouble condemning Nazis, you're probably not fit to hold the office.
Horrifying expressions of white supremacy and Nazi sympathies are not novel to our nation or the 21st century. What happened in Charlottesville isn't a left versus right problem. Trump has not lost his power to communicate clearly and quickly.
Overall, Americans disapproved of the president's response at twice the rate of those who approved, marking a 56 percent to 28 percent split. On Aug. 12, the country was rocked after white supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia turned violent, leaving a 32-year-old woman dead.
The poll also asked participants, "Do you yourself think it's acceptable or unacceptable to hold neo-Nazi or white supremacist views?"
There should be no room for this brand of vicious hate in our society. It's one thing to call immigrants rapists or to mock a disabled reporter or to give winking support to the alt-right.
