Trump has yet to speak with Heather Heyer's family — Timeline

If there is one tiny, vestigial flicker of hope, however, it's that fence-sitters and Republican moderates have been served a pretty sharp wake-up call.

"I just think the rhetoric has really brought this to a different level, and that's what we're worried about", Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans said Friday when asked about an event planned in his city. People wrote messages on the Free Speech Wall, played music, sang and ate free sheet cake, a reference to remarks made by UVa alumna Tina Fey on a recent episode of "SNL Weekend Update". There were 20 others injured.

Two major charities, the Cleveland Clinic and the American Cancer Society, cancelled fundraisers scheduled for Mr Trump's resort in Palm Beach, Florida, amid the continuing backlash over the president's remarks.

"What they're doing is choosing flashpoints around the country to try to rally their people around", said Oren Segal, director of the Anti-Defamation League's Center on Extremism. A challenge by a reality TV star wouldn't be anything Graham hasn't experienced before.

They used flags with depictions of the fasces, an ancient roman ax and a symbol of authority in fascist Italy, which is used in the logo of the group Vanguard America. Trump failed to consider these relevant facts. And no president has ever been condemned by both chambers at the same time.

"I have not and now I will not", Susan Bro told ABC News.

High officials take an oath when sworn in as White House commissioned officers or Senate-confirmed cabinet officials, not to an individual president but rather to our country and its Constitution.

Besides Flake and Graham, Trump has had run-ins over various issues before and after his election with Republican Senator Ted Cruz, and other Judiciary Committee members, including Grassley, John Cornyn, Orrin Hatch, Thom Tillis and Ben Sasse. Yes, both sides are bullying thugs, but Antifa did not have a member of their movement kill someone-and that was the difference. A Facebook post from one of my college dorm mates who lives there was disheartening to read as he discussed the fear of his children who were witnessing hate live in action.

Heather Heyer was killed in Charlottesville, Virginia last week in clashes between far-right and counter-protesters.

Trump's response to the tragedy in Charlottesville has rocked his presidency, causing some of his staunch Republican defenders to question his competence and CEOs who had planned to work with the White House to distance themselves from Trump. Say the revolution is coming.

Sixty-seven percent of Republicans approved of his response, while 82 percent of Democrats and 53 percent of independents disapproved. Trump also met personally with the victims of an attack at Ohio State University carried out by a Somali refugee.

Nadler said he "totally" supports removing the Confederate statues from the Capitol and has for "a long time".

The differences among Democrats were evident in Congress. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California called for "reprehensible" Confederate monuments to be removed from the Capitol.

On Saturday, residents came together for the Charlottesville Peace Gathering, intended as a means to help the community heal in a way that wasn't a protest or rally.

As I talked with friends and family about Charlottesville, expressions ranged from somberness to anger.

"President Trump and Steve Bannon are trying to divert attention away from the President's refusal to unequivocally and full-throatedly denounce white supremacy, neo-Nazism, and other forms of bigotry". As a genuine conservative he is a precious resource for the GOP.

The Charlottesville rioting is just the latest example of the spirit of hate that we have been wrestling with since slavery.
