Polls: Majority troubled by Donald Trump Charlottesville response


"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our attractive statues and monuments", Trump said in a series of tweets.

"The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful", Corker said.

He criticized efforts in a growing number of USA states, including Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, to remove statues honouring Confederate leaders.

The president was forced to scrap two White House economic advisory councils on Wednesday as top businessmen began abandoning him in protest.

"The Confederate statues in the halls of Congress have always been reprehensible", Pelosi said. "You. can't change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson - who's next, Washington, Jefferson?"

Sen. Lindsay Graham shot back at President Donald Trump on Thursday morning, continuing a spat between the two over Trump's controversial response to the weekend's white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

Also, 68% of approvers over 55 years old say they won't stop supporting Trump, along with 67% of approvers who have a high school degree or less and 67% of approvers who make under $50,000 per year.

In a rare and wide-ranging interview with the Left-leaning magazine American Prospect, Steve Bannon said: "There's no military solution, forget it".

Trump has mostly maintained high approval numbers among Republicans during his presidency so far, though they have slipped slightly since Inauguration Day.

"I think he made a awful mistake", Hogan said. Women who approve of Trump are most likely to say they will never change their minds: 72% of female Trump approvers say they will never strip their support, vs. only 54% of male Trump approvers.

The president unloaded on two Republican senators, Lindsey Graham of SC and Jeff Flake of Arizona, for different reasons.

"The public is learning (even more so) how dishonest the Fake News is", he said.

Trump on Thursday called Graham a "publicity seeking" lawmaker and tweeted that Graham's contention that the president had said there was "moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists and people like Ms Heyer" was a "disgusting lie". He was referring to Heather Heyer, the woman who was killed when she was struck by a vehicle driven into the crowd.
