Wow: Trump Secretary of State Throws Trump Right Under the Bus on Charlottesville

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Sunday distanced himself - and the nation - from President Trump's response to the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Va. implying it's out of step with American ideals.

One person died and many more were injured when a suspect who demonstrated with white nationalists at a so-called Unite the Right rally rammed his vehicle into crowd of counter-protesters.

Considering US president Donald Trump's budget cuts to the State Department, and his continuous disregard for the rules of diplomacy-Twitter threats of nuclear apocalypse and all-it's not surprising that he and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson don't always see eye to eye when it comes to America's foreign policy.

Wallace asked, "And the President's values?"

"And the president's values?" asked Chris Wallace, the Fox news anchor. 'We represent the American people.

Tillerson slammed Sebastian Gorka, Trump's former deputy assistant who left the job on Friday.

Tillerson's statement is the latest effort by conservatives to distance themselves from the Trump's refusal to denounce white supremacy.

"The president speaks for himself", he said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) has leveled criticisms milder than Cohn's but more explicit than Tillerson's in the two weeks since the president praised "very fine people on both sides" of the Charlottesville clash and argued that Confederate traitors should be held in the same esteem as the nation's founders.

"We represent the American people, their commitment to freedom and to equal treatment to people the world over, and that message has never changed", he said.

The document never actually mentioned Trump by name but it did call on "the government of the United States of America, as well as high-level politicians and public officials, to unequivocally and unconditionally reject and condemn racist hate speech and crimes in Charlottesville and throughout the country".

Chris then pointed out that after the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, people could start doubting the United States is honoring its values.

The secretary of state's reaction, however, is more surprising as he's a member of Trump's cabinet, not a voice from the opposing political party. Rogers, an expert on former Nicaragua dictator Daniel Ortega, stated that he sees similarities between the United States leader and Latin American presidents who stay in power for extended periods.
