There is little doubt that Donald Trump’s statements on Saturday were strong.
After the Friday night torch-display and after violence started to break out, Trump took to twitter and then to the cameras and denounced both sides of the violence. He also condemned hate. The only problem with his tweets and statements on topic is—he played right into the narrative, that certain people are protected in Trumpville. Those people are Putin, Russia and right wing haters such as the alt right.
