President Trump reiterated what he said on Saturday. Both sides were to blame for the weekend violence in Charlottesville, Virginia and accused what he called the “alt-left” of being very violent against the white supremacists who were demonstrating with a permit. In his latest remarks, Trump also showed sympathy for the fringe group’s efforts to preserve the monument of Confederate General Robert E Lee. In doing so, Trump used the bullhorn of the presidency to give voice to the grievances of white nationalists, and aired some of his own. His remarks amounted to a rejection of the Republicans, business leaders and White House advisers who earlier this week had pushed the president to more forcefully and specifically condemn the KKK members, neo-Nazis and white supremacists who took to the streets of Charlottesville.
