1 in 10 Americans Say Neo-Nazi Views Are 'Acceptable'”

The next day, August 15, Trump reverted back to saying there was "blame on both sides". Who could have predicted that the guy who retweeted anti-Semitic statements, called Mexicans "rapists and murderers", and said a judge of Mexican descent wasn't qualified to preside over one of his many lawsuits, would be so ambivalent and appeasing of Nazis?

In reference to Trump's claim there were some "very fine" people among the neo-Nazis and white supremacists, Brown says he was referring to "people who simply objected to the removal of Gen".

"I saw them beat a man bloody at the base of the University of Virginia's Thomas Jefferson statue, a wave of matching white polos and splintering tiki torches crashing down on their enemy".

Then there is Donald Trump, who also has shown two sides, most dramatically in the past 10 days. Trump called Flake "toxic". Kevin Sharer, the former CEO of Amgen, for example, identified listening as the most critical skill for effective leadership, a sentiment I hear echoed continually from business leaders in my ongoing work on identifying the most critical skills for successful leadership.

Trump has also been feuding publicly with Arizona Senator Jeff Flake. And the unwillingness of many moderate Republicans to support their President on many issues, domestic and foreign, is well documented, as they see him as a "loose cannon" who is more an independent than a Republican.

President Trump has been in power for seven whole months.

Frelinghuysen also updated his criticism after Trump's Tuesday remarks.

White supremacist protesters carry Nazi and Confederate flags in Charlottesville, Va., Aug. 12. In a protest, both sides will "throw the first punch" depending on where you are.

Christie was an early supporter of Trump's presidency and has stood by him after a multitude of controversies.

He wrote that Trump's "seeming affection for strongmen and authoritarians" has created "a cognitive dissonance among my generations of conservatives".

By engaging in the foolish and unsafe denial of truth, Donald Trump has burdened America with the prospect of future violent uprisings by alt right extremists, with far deadlier consequences.

It's a scary thought for some - but while we are only one eighth of the way through Trump's first rollercoaster of a term, we could actually be just one sixteenth through his entire presidency should he be re-elected in 2020. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) who chastised Trump.

East Rutherford (N.J): New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Monday said that President Donald Trump's racially fraught comments about "both sides" being to blame for a deadly neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, were "a mistake".

"For the sake of our nation - as our president - please fix this", Graham pleaded. And some members of Trump's own staff were outraged by his combative assertion that there were "very fine people" among those marching with the white supremacists, neo-Nazis and KKK members. And the gap is 18 points among Democrats - 62 percent of Democratic men said they supported impeachment, and 80 percent of Democratic women said likewise.

Another key finding? Charlottesville has not done wonders for Trump's popularity.

. Ask them a more specific question, though, about whether both sides were to blame for the violence or if the "far right" bears chief responsibility and the divisions become more complicated.

Trump gave a shout-out to Republican Sen.

Things got so heated at one point that Murkowski, the chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, postponed a markup for six Trump administration nominees.

The facts the president should pay attention to are more serious.

Trump shouted he'd "openly called for healing unity and love" in the immediate aftermath of Charlottesville and had simply been misrepresented in news coverage. He then revisited his Trump Tower news conference and, once more, only focused on the original statement: his condemning "in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence".

Among Republicans, 13% said that neo-Nazi views were acceptable, and the number climbs to 17% among Trump supporters.

"Senators clearly are more visible elected officials, and nearly all of them have more heterogeneous constituencies than House members".

Almost every Republican rushed to state they opposed the idea, including Trump's future vice president Mike Pence.
