    ‘Arguing that "both sides do it" [Trump] deeply misunderstands the hate and intolerance at the core of this "Unite the Right" rally. These people are bigots. They are hate-filled. This is not just a protest where things, unfortunately, got violent. Violence sits at the heart of their warped belief system.

    Trying to fit these hate-mongers into the political/ideological spectrum -- which appears to be what Trump is doing -- speaks to his failure to grasp what's at play here.
    [..]
    What Trump failed to do is what he has always promised to do: Speak blunt truths. The people gathered in Charlottesville this weekend are white supremacists, driven by hate and intolerance. Period. There is no "other side" doing similar things here.’

    Donald Trump's incredibly unpresidential statement on Charlottesville - CNNPolitics

    Yet another promise broken by Trump.

    Trump needs to condemn such rightwing hate and violence and acknowledge his failure to do so.

    “CNN political commentator Ana Navarro says that President Trump did not say what America needs to hear in his remarks following clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia.”

    Navarro: Damn it Trump, call a spade a spade - CNN Video

    Nor will he.

    Trump lacks the courage and conviction to do so, like most others on the right.

    Fake news lies again. Trump denounced it, you just want to pretend he is in full support of white supremacists to fit your beliefs.

    He did not address it for what it was, a right wing domestic terrorist attack. On a day when domestic terrorism was implemented in an American city the Liar in Chief cowardly gave a generic speech which did not address the domestic terrorist.
