Former presidents Bush condemn 'racial bigotry, anti-Semitism and hatred'

Trump takes to Twitter to attack media response to his statement

Trump takes to Twitter to attack media response to his statement

"Well guess what, you just magnified her", she said before the crowd erupted into a standing ovation.

Heyer was being remembered on Wednesday at a memorial service in Charlottesville.

George W Bush never commented on Barack Obama's premiership and so far Obama has not directly criticised Trump for his handling of the weekend's events, which led to the death of a woman.

Those statements fell flat the following day as the president doubled down on his initial statements, blaming anti-white supremacist protesters for the violence and accusing what he dubbed an "alt-left" for the turmoil. "There can be no moral ambiguity".

Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said the president's comments referring "many sides" ignore "the abhorrent evil of white supremacism, and continues a disturbing pattern of complacency around acts of hate from this President, his Administration and his campaign for the presidency".

He added that "you also had people that were very fine people on both sides". Nobody wants to say that. 'Do they have any semblance of guilt?' He said "hearing these marchers" is "pathetic".

At a heated press conference in NY on Tuesday, Mr Trump appeared to put the white nationalists and counter-demonstrators on equal moral ground.

We kid the former presidents!

Other world leaders have also weighed in, with British Prime Minister Theresa insisting there is "no equivalence between those who profound fascists views and those who oppose them".

Sen. John McCain, whom Trump called out at the news conference for not voting for the GOP health care bill, tweeted, "There's no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry".

Other prominent Republicans, including former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Senator Marco Rubio, from Florida, have condemned the "Unite the Right" rally as well.

Five chief executives from some of America's biggest companies resigned from the President's Manufacturing Jobs Initiative Panel, before Mr Trump disbanded it on Wednesday. "'No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion..."
