Asked to serve, some CEOs say no more to Trump

US President Donald Trump triggered fresh outrage Tuesday after reiterating his initial response to the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville that resulted in bloodshed, saying there was "blame on both sides". While Colbert didn't go quite as far as Kimmel or Meyers, both of who were openly calling for Trump to leave or be removed, he did express doubt that Trump would be president by Friday without specifying how that might come to pass.

The president also defended his controversial far-right chief strategist Steve Bannon, insisting that "he is not a racist", but without ruling out his possible departure from the West Wing. "Do they have any assemblage of guilt?" What about the fact they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs?

Sajid Javid blasted the Republican leader for blaming both sides after the unrest in Virginia caused by a white nationalist march.

"What I'm saying is this: you had a group on one side and you had a group on the other, and they came at each other with clubs, and it was vicious, and it was terrible, and it was a disgusting thing to watch, but there is another side, there was a group on this side, you can call them the left, you just called them the left, that came violently attacking the other group".

"What about the alt-left that came charging at the. alt-right?"

White supremacists in the United States have been emboldened by the election of Trump.

Trump had been severely criticized, including by members of his own party, for his original statement about Charlottesville on Saturday, in which he said that there had been violence "on many sides". Rubio wrote the protest organizers believe in "evil ideology which argues certain people are inferior because of race", and that the white supremacist groups will see being assigned "only 50% of blame" as a win.

A woman was killed and 19 people injured when a vehicle was driven in to a group of the counter-demonstrators. About 20 others were injured.

"I saw club-wielding "antifa" beating white nationalists being led out of the park".

Top US general to meet South Korean leader amid tensions
The sanctions were introduced in response to a wave of missile tests and increased military rhetoric from North Korea. North Korea also serves as a buffer for it against some 28,500 USA servicemembers stationed in the South.

Tom Cruise Injured During Scary Film Stunt
TMZ reports the extent of Cruise's injuries are not known. "I want to keep audiences on the edge of their seats". The unsafe stunt was performed today, and soon after, the star began limping, worrying his staff and crew.

"President Trump is a sympathizer of neo-Nazi White Supremacists", Steven Goldstein, head of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, said in a statement.

In his remarks, Trump sympathised with protesters who opposed removing the Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, but offered no equivalent remarks for those who favored its removal.

Trump changed all that when he courted the so-called alt-right during his campaign.

Trump went on to equate Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson with George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. "You like him?" Trump rhetorically asked the press pool.

After his remarks, a fifth member of his manufacturing panel resigned: AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, who said in a statement, "We can not sit on a council for a president who tolerates bigotry and domestic terrorism".

Earlier Tuesday, Scott Paul, president of the nonprofit American Alliance for Manufacturing, announced his exit, "because it's the right thing for me to do". "I want to know the facts", he said.

Heather Heyer, 32, later died when a auto was driven into crowds as anti-fascist demonstrators clashed with the white supremacists.

"You can call it terrorism, you can call it murder, you can call it whatever you want ... What he did was a horrible, horrible, inexcusable thing".

And the African-Americans who have supported Trump and urged other blacks to do the same - they need to be packing their boxes.
