President Trump Praises Confederate Leaders, Rips Call to Take Down Monuments

Heyer's mother told a memorial service on Thursday that her daughter's killers tried to silence her.

In May, white supremacist Richard Spencer led a torch-lit rally in Emancipation Park. A woman was killed when a man described as a white nationalist crashed his vehicle into the counter-protesters. He waited until Monday to specifically name the groups he was condemning - the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

Sen. Tim Scott of SC said Trump's "moral authority is compromised". "You can't change history".

Only the base of the Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson remained on Wednesday morning. "So foolish! Also.the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!"

Charlottesville's plans to remove the statue are in the midst of a legal challenge. "Or Klansmen, or terrorists". Calls for more to be removed have grown louder.

Graham said Wednesday that Trump "took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency" between the marching white supremacists and the people who had been demonstrating against them. Trump recently endorsed odd.

Cities are speeding up their removal since Saturday's rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a suspected white supremacist crashed a auto into a crowd, killing one woman, during protests against the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, who headed the Confederate army in the American Civil War.

Trump has blamed the Charlottesville violence on not just the white nationalist rally organizers but also the counter-protesters, and said there were "very fine people" among both groups.
