When Donald Trump repeatedly refused to condemn white supremacy after the riots in Charlottesville, and blamed "both sides" for Nazi demonstrators macing, beating, and ramming unarmed protestors with a auto, not even Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham could make excuses for the president's moral failure.

Heyer, 32, was killed Saturday when she was struck by a vehicle driven into the crowd by an OH man allegedly with far-right views who now faces multiple criminal charges, including second-degree murder.

Sen. Lindsey Graham says President Donald Trump's comments about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, are dividing Americans instead of healing them.

"He just can't forget his election trouncing", Trump wrote. Lindsey Graham of SC and Jeff Flake of Arizona.

When another reporter brought up that neo-Nazis were rallying in Charlottesville, Trump replied, "You had some very bad people in that group".

President Donald Trump has taken a swipe at a fellow Republican, calling Sen. "History is watching us all".

Lindsey Graham, R-Seneca, said Trump's words were "dividing Americans".

Taxpayers would be stuck with the tab - estimated at $194 billion over the next 10 years. Democrats seized on the report as proof that Trump was "sabotaging" the ACA markets.

During his press conference, Trump specifically denounced the hate groups at the rally in Charlottesville, denying that he was suggesting moral equivalency.

On Tuesday, Trump leaped to the defense of alt-right groups, angrily insisting that both sides were to blame for the weekend violence.

The Republican president's statements have been widely criticized as equivocating between white nationalists, including Ku Klux Klan members and neo-Nazis, on the one hand and those protesting against them on the other. "But not all of those people were neo-Nazis. And it was a disgusting thing to watch", he said.

Senate Democratic leader Senator Charles Schumer said, "When David Duke and white supremacists cheer your remarks, you're doing it very, very wrong".

"What about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right?"

On Thursday, Trump called Graham's statement a day earlier "a disgusting lie". "Robert E. Lee. Stonewall Jackson - who's next, Washington, Jefferson?"
