Donald Trump tweets he's 'sad' over removal of 'our attractive statues'

Polling numbers indicated that the public remains uneasy about Trump's ability to handle the North Korea situation - 59% said they are uneasy about his ability to do so, while 38% said they have confidence.

The Charlottesville rally that degenerated into bloody clashes and led to the death of one counter-protester, Ms Heather Heyer, last Saturday was spurred by the planned removal of a statue of a general of the pro-slavery Confederacy, Robert E. Lee. "And, often, the same men who did good also made mistakes".

Heyer was the counter-protester killed in a auto attack Saturday on the sidelines of the white nationalist rally in Virginia.

Interviewing for this poll began the night before Trump's stunning news conference on Tuesday and continued for two nights after it.

In a separate tweet, he called Flake "WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate".

Trump said at a combative news conference on Tuesday that both sides were to blame for the violence and that there were "very fine people" on both sides, including among the neo-Nazi and white-supremacist groups. Generally speaking, it's the Democrats who try to spotlight issues that isolate the GOP base from the rest of their party and country.

The day of the Charlottesville protests, Trump initially denounced the violence "on many sides". "[Graham] just can't forget his election trouncing".

A lot of counter-protesters will be showing up as well, and there is concern among local officials about violence breaking out . A woman was killed at that "Unite the Right" rally, and many others were injured, when a auto plowed into counterdemonstrators.

Graham followed that with a series of tweets approving of Wednesday comments by Trump about Heyer, but he also urged Trump to "fix" his handling of the Charlottesville response.

Graham said Wednesday that Trump "took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency" between the marching white supremacists and the people who had been demonstrating against them.

"No, I'll be reaching out", Trump said.

"Racism is evil. Those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans".

Lee and Jackson, another Confederate commander during the 1861-1865 Civil War, have always been celebrated by many white southerners as icons of a lost cause, and reviled by others as traitorous defenders of a slave-holding south. "You're changing history. You're changing culture". She said that she has been receiving a number of calls from the White House. "I think the president needs to take stock of the role that he plays in our nation and move beyond himself - move way beyond himself - and move to a place where daily he's waking up thinking about what is best for the nation".

Prior to his appointment as chief strategist in the Trump White House, Bannon served as the executive chairman of Breitbart News, a right-leaning news website which was an enthusiastic backer of Trump's candidacy for the Republican nomination.

Former President Barack Obama tweeted a quote from South African leader Nelson Mandela, "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion".
