Illinois lawmakers blast President Trump's comments on Charlottesville

White Supremacists Praise Trump's Return To Rhetoric Blaming 'Both Sides'

But he also remembered Heather Heyer, who was killed by a participant in the white nationalist rally over the weekend.

"Given how unprecedented all of this is, it's next to impossible to make concrete predictions - except that this won't end well", said Doug Heye, a former top staffer for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

The NRSC and Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC run by close allies of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., went out of their way to praise Trump late Tuesday night after unusual and Moore advanced to the September 26 runoff election.

Trump in a separate tweet, accused "the Fake News" for misrepresenting his comments.

As violence spread across Charlottesville, Trump spoke from a podium in Bedminster, New Jersey.

"The strength of the United States is always strongest, as the president has said so eloquently, when we are united around our shared values, and so it will always be", Pence said Wednesday, still not directly answering questions from the Washington Post political reporter Philip Rucker. They say plans to pass permanent, wide-reaching legislation with only Republican votes seem all but impossible, and are trying to predict what Congress will instead pass. The Charlottesville comments don't figure to generate much warmth.

"I was clear about this bigotry & violence over the weekend and I'll repeat it today: We must defeat white supremacy and all forms of hatred", Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Metairie, tweeted Tuesday afternoon, not long after the president wrapped up his press conference at Trump Tower in NY. Bob Corker said after an event in his home state.

"He has to fix this and Republicans have to speak out".

He agreed with Trump's assessment that both far-right and far-left agitators deserved equal blame.

Trump said there were "some very bad people" among the protesters.

"White House aides were not prepared for this moment", Brennan explained.

"Now would a good time to execute on that sentiment", Madden said, adding that the only option is to be "consumed" by Charlottesville.

Harrison took fourth in 12.74 seconds on the same track where set the world record of 12.20 last summer. Defending champion Ashton Eaton retired this year after winning the last two Olympic and world titles.

On Wednesday, Trump congratulated the candidates.

Vice President Mike Pence came to his boss's defense while on a South American trip.

Trump contradicted his statement earlier this week that decisions should be left to the "local town, community or the federal government" that put up the monuments in the first place, by tweeting that "the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!" "There is a lot of introspection of what it means to be a member of the Grand Ol" Party - right now, in three and a half years or seven and a half years, once the 45 president is no longer in the Oval Office".

Trump also re-tweeted a claim by supporter Harlan Hill that the media ignored Trump when he "clearly, unambiguously & repeatedly condemned the bigotry & violence in Charlottesville". And Strange's path to victory, after finishing second in Tuesday's initial ballot, will rely heavily on reminding Alabama conservatives that they continue to support Trump and they should transfer that support to Trump's choice for senator - Strange.

Sarcastically, Trump added: "I'm sure Sen".

Earlier on Thursday, Trump singled out another GOP senator, Lindsey Graham, on Twitter after the South Carolina Republican faulted Trump's response to the Charlottesville violence.

"What I'm saying is this: You had a group on one side and you had a group on the other, and they came at each other with clubs and it was vicious and it was terrible". "Let me ask you this".

On Wednesday it was reported that Politico tweaked the transcript from Trump's statements by writing that Trump said "us" in reference to the white supremacist groups. White supremacy is repulsive.

Andrew Anglin, the creator of the Nazi site The Daily Stormer, praised Trump's response.

Sen. Cory Gardner, the Colorado Republican who chairs the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said in a statement that the groups tasked with protecting Senate Republican incumbents and defeating Senate Democrats still stand with Flake, despite Trump's comment.

And success also assumes there are no more distractions.
