Trump Lashes Out at Two Republican Senators in Early Morning Rant

Donald Trump

Trump on Thursday tweeted that Flake "is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He's toxic!" and appeared to endorse Kelli Ward, Flake's Republican challenger in his 2018 re-election race.

Business leaders decided that they'd had enough, quitting two presidential advisory councils before Trump quickly dissolved the panels.

In response to the senator's statement, Trump on Thursday blasted Graham on Twitter and refuted the widespread interpretation that his remarks served as a tacit endorsement of bigotry.

Seems our elected officials (with some exceptions such as John McCain, Lindsey Graham, etc) can not find the moral courage to stand up and put America above party and re-election.

After being widely rebuked for his response to the deadly clashes in Charlottesville, Va., President Donald Trump fired back at one of his loudest critics, Sen.

"Publicity seeking Lindsey Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacist and people like Ms. Heyer". He first praised Trump's response to the death of a 32-year-old woman, Heather Heyer, who was killed when a auto driven by a white supremacist rallier barreled through a crowd of protesters, but called on Trump to reject the support of the white supremacists who have celebrated his presidency.

"He just can't forget his election trouncing", Trump tweeted.

"If we were to pull all our troops from Afghanistan it would be a disaster for our national security interests and set the stage for another 9/11 on American soil", the South Carolina Republican said in a statement.

Jackson himself a slave owner who as president oversaw the forced removal of the Cherokee Indian Nation from Virginia to Oklahoma - called the "Trail of Tears" because of the number of Indians who perished during the forced march. "That's how Mitch McConnell sees it, and that's how the rest of the Republicans see it". House Speaker Paul Ryan charged that, "White supremacy is repulsive".

The weekend violence at the Virginia college town has inflamed racial tensions nationwide and renewed concerns over hate groups after Trump blamed both anti-racism activists and white nationalists.

The nuanced statements reflect the party establishment's delicate dance.

Trump also blasted Flake, one of the few Republicans openly critical of the president.
