THE White House is under siege as Donald Trump faces renewed criticism over his response to a white nationalist rally in Virginia that turned deadly.

Mr Trump is being lashed from all corners, including the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, who has accused him of betrayal.

“I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists,” ex-Imperial Wizard David Duke told the president in a Twitter blast following the Charlottesville carnage.

Heather Heyer, 32, was killed and 30 others were injured after a suspected neo-nazi drove a car through a crowd of anti-racism protesters in Charlottesville.

Mr Trump condemned the violence, but has been roundly criticised for waiting too long to address it and then failing to explicitly condemn the “white supremacist” marchers behind the atrocity.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides,” Mr Trump said.

......

CNN commentator Peniel Joseph said the response “spotlighted Trump’s toxic failure to lead”, while the New York Times columnist Erick Woods-Erickson said Trump got it wrong.

“This president is our president. He is the president of the United States. But as we become less united as a nation, he seems unwilling or unable to speak with conviction and moral clarity. We will all be worse off for it.”


Even the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump directly called out the white supremacists.

What policies would they be then...!?

Donald Trump takes two days to condemn Charlottesville racists, 54 minutes to slam Merck CEO


TWO more CEOs have quit a White House advisory council after Donald Trump’s controversial response to a deadly white supremacist rally.

Earlier the US President was quick to respond to news that Merck & Co Inc chief executive Kenneth Frazier would resign from Mr Trump’s American Manufacturing Council, in sharp contrast to the time it took him to condemn white supremacists.

The CEO of the top pharmaceutical company claimed he was taking a stand against intolerance and extremism in the wake of the Charlottesville tragedy, which left one woman dead and 19 injured.

Others soon followed his lead, with Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank and Intel CEO Brian Krzanich also stepping down.

“We remain resolute in our potential and ability to improve American manufacturing,” Mr Plank said in a statement. “However, Under Armour engages in innovation and sports, not politics.”

The move after Mr Frazier, an African-America, posted a statement to Twitter resigning his position, it said: “America’s leaders must honour our fundamental views by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal.”

It took the President less than an hour to respond to Mr Frazier, one of the few African-Americans to head a Fortune 500 company.

In comparison, it took Mr Trump two days before he directly called out the white supremacists and nationalists behind the Charlottesville attack.

says it all about the egomaniac and Nazi sympathizer Trump unequivocally is
