  • Trump Increasingly Angry, Isolated Amid Fallout From Charlottesville Response

President Donald Trump has yet to speak with the family of Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old who was killed during the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday.

A defiant President Donald Trump shrugged off a barrage of bipartisan criticism on Thursday and said USA culture and history were being "ripped apart" by the removal of Confederate statues. You can't change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson - who's next, Washington, Jefferson?

With moves to dismantle Confederate monuments gaining momentum, Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, called for Confederate statues to be removed from the US Capitol.

Abraham Lincoln, the USA president who freed the slaves and defeated the southern confederacy in the 1861-1865 civil war, is a prominent Republican and one of the most revered figures in U.S. history. On "Fox & Friends" Monday morning, Trump surrogate Katrina Pierson said that slavery was part of America's "good history". Again, Trump drew criticism from prominent Republicans, including U.S. Rep. Steve Stivers of OH, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee.

And in a Facebook post Friday, Mitt Romney called on Trump to admit he was wrong, apologize, and fully condemn and blame racists for the violence in Charlottesville.

A 32-year-old woman was killed and 19 other people injured when a man suspected of being a white nationalist drove his vehicle into a crowd of counter-protesters.

But Trump himself, staying at his golf club in New Jersey, was increasing rather than slowing his tweet-a-thon. "For the sake of our Nation, as our President, please fix this", Mr Graham wrote on Twitter.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon took issue with Trump saying there were "very fine" people on both sides of the protests: "When the likes of [former Ku Klux Klan leader] David Duke praise you, you are on the wrong side". Among those was Campbell Soup Co. president and CEO Denise Morrison, who directly attributed her resignation to President Trump's comments: "Racism and murder are unequivocally reprehensible and are not morally equivalent to anything else that happened in Charlottesville".

"I was so exhausted I don't remember saying something nice or derogatory about him", she said.

"I think there is blame on both sides". A casual consumer of the news might assume that Charlottesville has been a political triumph for Democrats, and a disaster for Trump and the GOP.

He also has lashed out at his critics in the Republican Party, aiming angry tweets at Sen.

According to Irish bookmaker Paddy Power, large sums have begun to be placed on Trump calling it quits, taking the odds into evens, the equivalent of 50 percent. And honestly, if the press were not fake and if it was honest, the press would have said what I said was very nice.

The president, he argues, failed the "presidential test of moral leadership" by suggesting that both the white supremacists and those who oppose them were in the wrong. "They totally misrepresent what I say about hate, bigotry etc. Shame!"

"It's up to the people of they want to take it down take it down".
