Trump's Approval Numbers Fall To The Worst In History After Bungled Charlottesville Response

Trump's Approval Rating Is Just 10 Points Higher Than Richard Nixon's Before He Resigned

In a subsequent tweet, Trump expressed condolences to "the family of the young woman killed today" but did not name Heyer.

One woman was killed and 19 other people were injured when a auto plowed into a group of counter-protesters who had gathered to oppose the white nationalists, in town to object to the planned removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

James Alex Fields Jr., 20, was identified as the driver of the vehicle that plowed into a crowd Saturday.

A 20-year-old man said to have harbored Nazi sympathies as a teenager was facing charges he plowed his vehicle into protesters opposing the white nationalists, killing Heather Heyer and injuring 19 people.

In Graham's statement, he said those blaming Pres. Trump for tensions are misguided. Before the election, "cultural anxiety" was one of the reasons listed as propelling Trump to the White House.

"We must unite as Americans against racism and hatred", Knight wrote on Facebook on Saturday.

That was said in 1984, by Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States.

Sessions told ABC News on Monday morning that the vehicle crash that had killed Heyer "does meet the definition of domestic terrorism".

"You can be sure we will charge and advance the investigation towards the most serious charges that can be brought, because this is unequivocally an unacceptable, evil attack", Sessions said.

The phrase "other hate groups" in Trump's statement may have been an attempt to pacify the alt-right, whose support Trump has embraced.

While the others believe his statement comes a little too late.

Chair of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez also criticized Trump's delay, writing: "History won't forget that when the streets of Charlottesville echoed with evil, Donald Trump responded with silence". Condemnation of racism. Swift justice for a terrorist. I have directed my team to impanel a commission with representatives from community organizations, faith leaders, and law enforcement to make actionable recommendations for executive and legislative solutions to advance our mission of reconciliation. unity, and public safety.

Trump has faced mounting criticism since the deadly protest for his failure to swiftly condemn the white supremacist groups that took part in the demonstration.

At a rally he told his fellow white supremacists that, "We're going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump".

Less than an hour later, the New York Times reported, the US President criticised Frazier.

The new advertisement uses the same video clips, still images and font as one released earlier this year by America First Policies, a political group that is able to secretly raise and spend unlimited sums of money.

Tony McAleer, one of the co-founders of Life After Hate, said they were counting on the federal dollars to implement a strategic initiative to proactively identify white supremacists online who want to leave the movement.

Trump quickly hit back on Twitter, but made no reference to Frazier's reasons for quitting the panel, instead revisiting a longstanding gripe about expensive medicines.

Sen. Lindsey Graham kept his response short, tweeting, "Well done Mr. President", following Trump's comments on Monday. "They don't speak for me, and I suspect that they don't speak for you", he said.

"If they had given us the funding right away within a month or two of being awarded, we would have been up and running before Charlottesville".
