Trump condemns violence in Charlottesville: The President calls for the country to ´come together as one´ as his wife Melania urges Americans to ´communicate with our hearts´ Daily Mail [UK], by Jenny Stanton
President Donald Trump has condemned the violence taking place in Charlottesville Virginia amid a planned white nationalist rally. The president took to Twitter to denounce the white nationalists who stormed the city with tiki torches for a planned ´Unite the Right´ rally. ´We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for,´ he wrote. ´There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!´ ´Am in Bedminster for meetings & press conference on V.A. & all that we have done, and are doing, to make it better-but Charlottesville sad!´
The leftist party destroys buildings,cars, kills people buy not allowing the ambulances go through because they have the right to block the streets. They´re called protesters. We fight back and we´re called White Nationlists? WTH.
While we cannot ignore the deep differences (and treason) behind the growing tension, we must - as our President correctly points out - remember that we are Americans first. If the Republic careens into Civil War that it may not survive, we will all lose - together.
This will not be easy, but we are Americans: We can do whatever we set our hearts and minds to.
Simply stated, this conflict is owned by the Left (including, in good measure, the GOPe, RINOs, and Never-Trumpers). The mainstream media’s fanning the flames of hatred and violence has stirred the unrest. The organizers and money behind the rent-a-mobs need to be charged with criminal intent and/or whatever judicial options there are to impose serious penalties on those sources. Day after day, hour after hour, nothing but hateful rhetoric from the Left, and exploited day after day, hour after hour at the hands of the mainstream media. The Left owns this. For shame!
He was not supposed to be back until Thursday, but President Trump’s Thursday afternoon may have been too much for Joe Scarborough as he returned to air a day early. The Morning Joe host beamed in to co-anchor his namesake show from what appeared to be a living room in Maine to denounce the Commander-in-Chief after the comments he made during his Trump Tower press conference on Tuesday. ´He has now officially become the president of the white nationalist movement,´ said Scarborough. ´The president has chosen sides, and it is very clear. Not only morally, but also politically.´ Scarborough then added: ´He has chosen
White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is a marked man, according to news reports and sources inside the West Wing who see the nationalist Trump-whisperer´s political hourglass quickly losing sand. CBS News reported Monday night that the axe could fall as soon as Friday on the man credited with arranging the president´s marriage to millions of angry white working-class voters last year. The former Breitbart News executive chairman was once an equal partner in a ruling triumvirate of deputies that included Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner. But Priebus´s star ran out of fuel last month. And his successor
North Korea´s leader has pulled back from a ordering missile strike just off the US territory of Guam but warned that he could still go ahead if Washington continues with "reckless actions" on the Korean peninsula. Kim Jong-un was briefed by military chiefs on its plans to create "enveloping fire" by setting off rockets into the waters a few miles off the American military hub in the Pacific. News agencies quoted him as saying he would observe the "foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees" a little more before deciding whether to order a test launch. His decision to hold fire - at
A Methodist pastor who has been Hillary Clinton’s minister for years plagiarized the writings of another minister in a new book, it was reported on Monday. Rev. Bill Shillady is the author of a new book, Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton. The book is based on emails that Shillady wrote to Clinton during the presidential campaign. Clinton even appears on the cover of the book and she even wrote a foreword praising the minister. While the book includes 11 pages of end notes crediting source material, Shillady fails to credit another source, a blog post by
Hillary Clinton´s personal pastor compared her treatment to the persecution of Jesus in a devotional sent to her during the Presidential campaign - and victor Donald Trump to the ´wicked´. The former Democratic candidate took comfort from the words of Rev Bill Shillady who told her that ´blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness´. Rev Shillady referred her to Matthew 5:10-12 which says that the reward for such ill treatment on Earth was going to Heaven when she died. The remarks were among the daily devotionals sent by Rev Shillady to Clinton during her failed campaign against Donald Trump. In the foreword
President Donald Trump insisted on Monday that he and his administration forcefully denounce the ´evil´ embodied by white supremacists and other bigoted hate groups whose weekend rally in Virginia left one woman dead and 20 others injured. ´Racism is evil. And 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,´ the president said at the White House. ´We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our
The only black member of President Trump´s American Manufacturing Council quit on Monday over the president´s response to the violence in Charlottesville, calling on American leaders to clearly reject ´expressions of hatred,bigotry and group supremacy.´ Kenneth Frazier, the CEO of the pharmaceutical giant Merck, bowed out of the board, saying it was a ´matter of personal conscience´ that he take a ´stand against intolerance and extremism.´ President Trump quickly hit back on Twitter, writing, ´Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President´s Manufacturing Council,he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!´
Mitt Romney fired back at President Trump for saying “both sides” were responsible for violence at a white supremacist rally over the weekend, claiming that the two clashing groups were more “morally different universes.” “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday. (Tweet) Romney was responding to Trump’s comments Tuesday that “both sides” were to blame for the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday. Trump drew fire for saying Saturday that "many sides" were to blame for the violence at the
Fox News´s Kat Timpf slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "disgusting" press conference in which he again blamed "both sides" for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, stepping back from his direct condemnation of white supremacist groups a day earlier. "It was one of the biggest messes I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe it happened," said Timpf, a co-host of “The Fox News Specialists.” “It is honestly crazy for me to have to comment on this right now because I’m still in the phase where I am wondering if it was actually real life —
President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace. Yet Saturday’s bloody clash in Charlottesville showed that many on
The president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing has resigned from President Trump´s American Manufacturing Council, making him the fifth business leader to do so. “I’m resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it´s the right thing for me to do,” Scott Paul tweeted Tuesday. (Snip) Paul´s exit comes amid backlash over the president´s response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. Paul is joining Kenneth Frazier, the CEO of major pharmaceutical company Merck; Kevin Plank, the CEO of Under Armour; and Brian Krzanich, the CEO of Intel, who all resigned from the president’s
Some House Democrats renewed calls for Congress to impeach President Trump on Tuesday after he resorted to blaming "both sides´ for a violent rally in Charlottesville, Va., this past weekend organized by white nationalist groups. "POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger," said Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., in a tweet Tuesday night. "Time to invoke the 25th Amendment." (Tweet) Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., also called on Republicans to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump. "As we once again hear Donald J. Trump defend those responsible for the deadly riot in Charlottesville
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America. CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend. (Snip) Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately. “A fitting response to the deadly terror attack
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in on the weekend´s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigating Donald Trump without naming him. ´We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis,´ McConnell said in a statement. The choice of words, while careful, appeared to push back against Trump´s claim on Tuesday that some ´very fine people´ were among a crowd of white supremacists who rallied in the college town. McConnell´s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend´s clash bore some responsibility for
