Lindsey Graham says Trump's words 'dividing Americans, not healing them'

"You can't wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying 'I'm sorry, '" Bro said of the president. "I dont forgive you for that", Bro said in another interview to MSNBC.

Trump tweeted, "Publicity seeking Lindsey Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists and people like Ms. Heyer".

James Fields, Jr., who shared Nazi imagery on his Facebook page and brandished a shield with the logo of white supremacist group Vanguard America on Saturday, is accused of driving his vehicle into a crowd and killing Heyer. "Your words are dividing Americans, not healing them", Graham said, according to CNN. "She knew she was loved all the way through her life and that means a lot to me", Bro added.

"I remember my Dad saying, 'Don't worry, those people are insane, '" Graham said.

"I'm not putting anybody on a moral plane", Trump said during a testy Q&A with reporters in the lobby of his Manhattan tower.

The president initially took heat for blaming "many sides" for the violence.

"In Charlottesville, the blame lays squarely on the KKK and white supremacists", the leader of the Republican national committee, Ronna Romney McDaniel, told ABC News.

Tax reform's hard road: Politico writes veteran lobbyists are predicting a hard road for tax reform, even as President Trump is pushing to sign a bill in the fall.

Roberts reminded Heyer that after Trump's initial statement on Monday - a statement where he begrudgingly mentioned the hate groups that were responsible for Heyer's death by name - Bro had thanked the president.


Heather Heyer was killed Saturday when a vehicle rammed into a crowd of counterprotesters at a white nationalist rally.

On Wednesday, Trump posted on Twitter: "Memorial service today for lovely and incredible Heather Heyer, a truly special young woman".

When asked whether she had spoken already with Trump in the week since her daughter was allegedly killed in a terror attack by neo-Nazi sympathizer James Fields Jr., Bro said, "I have not, and now I will not".

"At first I just missed his calls", Bro said.

"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our attractive statues and monuments", he tweeted.

Trump blamed the violence on "many sides" of the Charlottesville conflict during a statement given from his suburban New Jersey golf club on Saturday.

Asked whether she had a message for Trump, Bro offered: "Think before you speak". That should be an everyday thing, that should be a norm, ' she said.

On Tuesday, during the same news conference, Trump did not say whether he will travel to Charlottesville. "You had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit and they were very, very violent".
