Trump's stance on statues alienates Republicans

Trump's Tweets Lead People to Worry

"You can't change history, but you can learn from it", Mr Trump wrote on Twitter, refusing to move past the controversy.

But President Donald Trump quickly took center stage after he double-downed on his initial statement during a news conference at Trump Tower pointing fingers at "both sides" - white nationalists and counter-protesters alike.

Whether you agree or disagree with Trump's handling of the deadly episode, he's the one who elevated this into a political furor.

A CBS poll released Thursday found that 67 percent of Republicans approved of the way Trump handled the violence in Charlottesville, while 82 percent of Democrats disapproved.

Independents and Democrats, and the country overall, said they felt the President's description of blame in the events is inaccurate; Republicans said they felt it is accurate. Baltimore and other cities have removed or covered up such statues, as the Associated Press notes.

And then there is John Kelly, the retired general who was lauded for his presumed ability to bring order to an undisciplined White House.

"By almost two to one Americans think that President Trump dropped the ball in his handling of this crisis", Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College poll, said in a news release.

He added that "when it comes close to fight, the one who is stronger and wiser should be the first to step back from the brink". The deployment is largely aimed at responding to the risk of falling fragments while missiles fly over the region.

The fallout from Trump's response to the violence in Charlottesville led to the disbanding of his CEO advisory panels on Wednesday as a growing number of chief executives from some of the nation's largest companies resigned in protest against the president's response.

"But Trump felt vindicated after the remarks, said people familiar with his thinking".

The President has drawn widespread criticism from across the USA political spectrum for saying demonstrators representing an array of hate groups and counter-protesters shared blame for the violence that erupted, leaving one woman dead and 19 injured when a Nazi sympathizer drove his auto at high speed into a group of counter-protesters.

"Ethno-nationalism - it's losers", he said. She also advised Trump to "think before you speak".

Following his press conference on Tuesday where he actually chose to defend white supremacists and neo-Nazis following the horrifying violence in Charlottesville, he's proving just how ignorant he is with a new Twitter rant!

In this view, Trump is right where he wants to be, even if the media and political reaction has been overwhelmingly negative.
