"You could make an argument for Thomas Jefferson and George Washington", MacCallum said.

Only after 48 hours of extreme public pressure, including four CEOS dropping out of his manufacturing council, Trump made a brief statement condemning those groups specifically. Do they have any semblance of guilt?. "And I guarantee you, they are going to go to Washington, and they are going to demand that the Washington Monument be torn down". What about the fact they came charging - that they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? They did, and problematically so. But not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Let's acknowledge that, yes, white supremacy has a long history in the USA (from the very beginning), and that the debate over race is a long one, and let's further understand that the debate continues.

He said that just as there were innocent citizens voicing their opinion for the removal of the city's Robert E. Lee statue, there were also innocent demonstrators there to speak out against its removal.

George Washington was a slave-owner. Is it George Washington next? Are we going to take down his statue.

Mark Pocan, of Madison, also raised the specter of impeachment in a statement from his office criticizing the president. Asked what he thought of Trump's comments, Scott told a reporter: "You can ask President Trump what he said ".

He added, "You're changing history". You're changing culture. And you had people, and I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.

"You had a group on one side who was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that, but I'll say it right now", he said.

OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.

Both groups, Trump said, had "fine" people but each also included troublemakers.

There were people in that rally, and I looked the night before. I own actually one of the largest wineries in the United States. "Two White House officials who have been trying to moderate the president's position suggested that Mr. Bannon was using the crisis as a way to get back in the good graces of the president, who has soured on Mr. Bannon's internal machinations and reputation for leaking stories about West Wing rivals to conservative news media outlets".
