The Trump Presidency: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)
This transcript of Donald Trump’s latest press conference has left the world baffled
'I think there's blame on both sides and I have no doubt about it'
‘There is no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate & bigotry,’ was the response Senator John McCain had to President Donald Trump‘s latest remarks yesterday.
And, thankfully, most of the world agrees.
After the US President was criticised for his reaction on Twitter to the Charlottesville protests (while his daughter Ivanka Trump straight up condemned the white supremacists and neo-Nazis behind the events), the world assumed he’d learnt his lessons about generalising and not calling a spade a spade.
What happened at the weekend wasn’t a protest that got out of hand, it was a terror attack. The very definition of a terrorist is ‘a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims,’ and isn’t that exactly what those who marched against the removal of a statue of a pro-slavery Confederate commander – complete with torches and white supremacist slogans – are?
Especially when one peaceful anti-racism protestor, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, lost her life trying to stand against this hate.
Finally, on Monday, it seemed that Donald Trump condemned the far-right, calling the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists ‘repugnant’ to everything America stands for – but apparently that came just from his advisers, rather than Trump himself.
As come Tuesday, Donald Trump’s real thoughts were revealed during an unedited press conference.
