Bannon Says Racial Politics Help Trump In Wake Of Charlottesville Rally

  • Senator Lindsey Graham speaks at the Senate Judiciary hearing

The mother of the woman who was killed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has "no interest" in speaking with President Donald Trump.

"Racism is evil. Those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans".

President Donald Trump says the Department of Homeland Security and law enforcement are "on alert" and watching the borders for any sign of trouble. Did he contact you?

Instead, he has blamed both sides for the clashes that took place on August 13.

Obviously, this was an attempt to bait Bro to slam Trump.

It wasn't until Thursday, Bro said, that she heard Trump's comments that appeared to equate the actions of the protesters and the white supremacist demonstrators. "At first, I just missed his calls", she said.

Trump called Heyer "truly special" in a tweet Tuesday but was criticized for not calling Bro directly to express his condolences. "She will be long remembered by all", he tweeted. "He also told reporters that he would be reaching out to you".

"The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability, nor some of the competence, that he needs to demonstrate in order for him to be successful - and our nation and our world needs for him to be successful, whether you are Republican or Democrat".

S. Korea urges NK to end provocations as allies start military drills
North and South Korea are technically still at war after the 1950-1953 Korean War ended with a truce, not a peace treaty. And, the tensions were ratcheted up further when President Donald Trump made threats of fire and fury to North Korea .

The current tensions in the Korean peninsula started increasing following multiple missile tests by North Korea. He said Thursday that Trump agreed to consult South Korea before taking any military action against Pyongyang.


Bro said that she was contacted by the White House multiple times, but her phone was off and she had not been able to find time to speak with Trump yet, saying it "feels terrible, but I just haven't had time to talk to the president".

Only three presidents in history have been censured, all prior to the 20th century: Andrew Jackson, John Tyler, and James Buchanan. "This is not the position of the United States government, and we must send a clear message to President Trump that his comments are not only wrong, but an affront to the moral convictions and ideals of this country".

Bro did not allow politicians to speak at the memorial service for Heyer on Wednesday, which was attended by more than 1,000 people.

"Every day, the President gives us further evidence of why such a censure is necessary", Pelosi said.

"I'm not talking to the president now", she told GMA on Friday. "Did you have a reaction to that?"

Trump reacted by nixing the council and a parallel body, known as the Strategic and Policy Forum, whose members issued a statement on Wednesday, affirming their opposition to racism and bigotry.

What happened in Charlottesville was a disgrace. He refused to condemn white supremacy specifically, prompting angry calls from Republican lawmakers and voters.

He even went so far as to insist that there were "very fine people" marching among the neo-Nazi crowd and drew a moral equivalency between founding father George Washington and secessionist leader Gen. Robert E. Lee, who was a key player in the Civil War that nearly ended the nation Washington helped build. There are no good actors in this debate. Some of the monuments have become rallying points for white nationalists but also have the support of some people interested in historical preservation. "I think there's blame on both sides and I have no doubt about it".
