Defiant Trump blames both sides for violence

So Trump is holding that SJW / Antifa / BLM / Communists are also violent and should be held accountable for their violence. 

The Associated Press says that by identifying the alleged violence on the left, Trump is “wiping out” his comments about the Alt-Right. 

This is a bunch of hooey. Why does identifying one group’s violence downplay another group’s violence. 

As I’ve said previously, the Democrats really need to see SJW / Antifa / BLM / Communists as their alt-right. They will come back to bite us all in the butt. 

Combative and insistent, President Donald Trump declared anew Tuesday “there is blame on both sides” for the deadly violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Va., appearing to once again equate the actions of white supremacist groups and those protesting them. He showed sympathy for the fringe groups’ efforts to preserve Confederate monuments.

The president’s comments effectively wiped away the more conventional statement he delivered at the White House a day earlier when he branded members of the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists who take part in violence as “criminals and thugs.”

Trump’s advisers had hoped those remarks might quell a crush of criticism from Republicans, Democrats and business leaders. But the president’s retorts Tuesday suggested he had been a reluctant participant in that cleanup effort and renewed questions about why he seems to struggle to unequivocally condemn white nationalists.
