Mother of Charlottesville victim Heather Heyer says she won't talk to Trump

Trump has "a history and a habit of minimizing groups of people", he said. "It has to happen", Senator Bob Corker told reporters in his home state of Tennessee.

"I'm not talking to the president now". Lindsey Graham by name Thursday, slamming the SC senator as "publicity seeking".

J. /WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump has on Thursday decried the removal of monuments to the pro-slavery Civil War Confederacy, echoing white nationalists and drawing stinging rebukes from fellow Republicans in a controversy that has inflamed racial tensions.

The decision to abandon the business group came a day after a revolt among industry leaders on two other advisory panels forced the president to disband them. I didn't even see that message. Or Klansmen, or terrorists. "They were speaking directly to the force and the American people". "And that moral authority is compromised".

"He also recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation".

"My daughter had a mission to make things fair and equitable for everyone, and I am going to continue that mission".

Trump also tweeted about Heyer on Thursday, in a message that also attacked Sen.

In a series of tweets Thursday, Trump said it was "sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our attractive statues and monuments".

"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our attractive statues and monuments". "Such a disgusting lie".

"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", Trump wrote. "Such a disgusting lie". "[Graham] just can't forget his election trouncing". "The people of SC will remember!" Jeff Flake Thursday morning, tweeting that the Arizona Republican is "toxic" and a "non-factor" in the Senate.

"Thank you, President Trump, for those words of comfort and for denouncing those who promote violence and hatred", she said. "For the sake of our nation - as our president - please fix this". But she said "now I will not" talk to the president after a news conference in which Trump equated violence by white supremacists at the rally with violence by those protesting the rally.

Pelosi called on Congressional Republicans to publicly distinguish themselves from the president. He has continued to offer Trump advice on foreign policy.

Susan Bro, Heyer's mother, said Friday that calls from the White House were made during Heyer's funeral on Wednesday, a charge that White House aides have so far failed to respond to.

"No, I'll be reaching out", Trump said. "The White House would be well-served to embrace the character, the substance of someone like Senator Flake. You had some fine people".
