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

Several politicians including U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren R-Plano used social media to state their repudiation of Trump’s statements.
“Racism and violence are morally wrong and should be unequivocally condemned at the highest levels of our country,”

President Donald Trump fired off a string of tweets on Thursday morning, invoking the name of the murdered Charlottesville protester while bragging about winning the 2016 Republican primary.

After Trump defended neo-Nazis and white supremacists yesterday, politicians on both sides of the aisle reacted with disgust and condemnation.

Trump and Graham have been going after each other since the president's statements on the violence and death of a woman in Charlottesville, Virginia, during a white nationalist rally.

Graham praised Trump for his condolences to the family of Heather Heyer, the counter protester who was killed August 12, but was critical of the lingering effects of his message, particularly his choice to put blame on both sides.

"I think there is blame on both sides", the president said at an August 15, 2017, press conference at Trump Tower in Manhattan.

"You have some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people on both sides", Trump said Tuesday.

Trump's approval rating hits new low
Americans are increasingly dissatisfied with President Trump's on-the-job performance, according to new polls out this week. A majority of all respondents, 59 percent , disapproved of the way Democrats in Congress are handling the issue.

President Donald Trump has taken a swipe at a fellow Republican, calling Sen.

Reacting to Trump's tweets, Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough noted that both Graham and Flake had stuck their necks out for the president recently when they voted in favor of a "horrid" Republican health care plan that Trump desperately wanted to see passed.

While numerous elected Republicans have criticized Trump for his response to the Charlottesville violence over the weekend, Graham, R-S.C., issued a particularly harsh condemnation on Wednesday.

Although Trump's press conference was watched and reported on by countless news outlets, he then claimed that the media is not reporting exactly what he said. "I, along with many others, do not endorse this moral equivalency". "Many Republicans do not agree with and will fight back against the idea that the Party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world". "However, because of the manner in which you have handled the Charlottesville tragedy you are now receiving praise from some of the most racist and hate-filled individuals and groups in our country". Such a disgusting lie.

Jackson himself a slave owner who as president oversaw the forced removal of the Cherokee Indian Nation from Virginia to Oklahoma - called the "Trail of Tears" because of the number of Indians who perished during the forced march.

Dukes is a former KKK leader. "History is watching us all", Graham tweeted.
