Many say Trump's condemnation of hate groups is not enough

Many say Trump's condemnation of hate groups is not enough

"This isn't politics. This is about who we are as a nation, and I call upon every elected official to join us together, to come up with constructive ways of healing, of reconciliation and just telling these people to stop", the Virginia governor said as the White House spent most of the day in defending Trump.

Others in the White House spoke out more strongly against white supremacists or the alt-right. Offered a second chance to condemn the extremist by reporters, he demurred.

A few weeks later they held the Louisiana presidential primary. Last week, his warning that he would rain "fire and fury" over North Korea if it continued its threats, appeared to envisage a nuclear strike and triggered alarm in Asia and confusion about his motivations.

Also, a neo-Confederate group has asked the state of Virginia for permission to rally at a monument to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in Richmond on September 16, and other events are likely.

After all three broadcast networks spent Sunday blaming President Trump for the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend, in an exclusive interview with NBC News aired on Monday's Today show, Vice President Mike Pence took the liberal media to task for its biased coverage.

They were called upon to explain, defend and often reshape the President's remarks after his rhetoric had crossed conventional lines.

The president is in Washington for one day during a working vacation mostly in Bedminster, New Jersey. And if they do, you can imagine the president will be asked to say this on his own because it's not just the Republicans you mentioned.

CEO Kenneth Frazier, who is black, did not name Trump in his statement, but the rebuke was implicit. It's other Senate Republicans in leadership and, of course, a number of Democrats who say that the president's response so far has been tepid and entirely insufficient.

The President's failure to single out white extremism was all the more notable because he's hardly been wary of doling out criticism in many other spheres.

The department is also investigating whether others may have been involved in planning the attack.

Four-hundred miles away, the mayor of Lexington, Kentucky, hinted that the white supremacists might get the opposite of what they'd hoped for.

"I think he needed to be much harsher relating to the white supremacists".

The University of Florida said white provocateur Richard Spencer, whose appearances sometimes stoke unrest, is seeking permission to speak there next month.

ALEXANDER: But this is Orin Hatch and Cory Gardner, it's not me. She said her parents were Holocaust survivors, and she's anxious that extremist views were becoming normal under Trump's presidency. And call it for what it is.

He said he's "open-minded" to hear a reason, but still, he believes that the military should only be deployed when there is a national security interest for the United States, but he does not see that in the case of Venezuela. It's bigotry and it's unacceptable.

Pressure on the domestic front is the last thing Trump would have welcomed as he attempts to maintain his strong front against North Korea, with global financial markets trembling at the prospect of a Pyongyang strike on the USA territory of Guam.

"Anti-fascist protesters continue to shout down the pro-Trump speakers", the paper reported, "and a couple of times, someone from the crowd has jumped onto the stage to grab the microphone away". "If I have no idea why we would use military force in Venezuela".
