United Nations panel urges USA to reject racist hate speech Meanwhile, in an unusual step, a top United Nations body on racial discrimination called on the U.S. to "unequivocally and unconditionally" reject racist hate speech and crimes following the Charlottesville protest.
Just more than a third of American voters (35%) say Trump hasn't had an impact on white supremacist groups, and six in 10 voters (59%) say he's encouraged them.
Mayor Greg Stanton, who also spoke at the news conference, said that the police had attempted to allow people on the streets of downtown Phoenix to protest peacefully, and that there had been no serious injuries. And I have no doubt about it, and you don't have any doubt about it either, " Trump said August 15 during a combative news conference with reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower.
As he did Tuesday night, Trump also went after GOP Sen. See, I haven't mentioned any names, so now everybody's happy'. I got the white supremacists, the neo-Nazi.
While avoiding naming the senator directly, Trump lashed out at Flake during his rally in Phoenix, Ariz., Tuesday evening, saying "Nobody knows who the hell he is" and that he is "weak on borders, weak on crime".
He threaded references to Arizona elected officials throughout the speech, calling out support for his ally, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and scolding his Republican foes, Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake. "And I think Flake has added to the swamp, and I'm sorry to say that".
"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides".
Trump moved on to policy after about 45 minutes and suggested he would focus on his top campaign promise: Building the wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.
President Donald Trump said the media misrepresented his condemnation of white supremacists last week, but he did not address the controversial elements of his remarks blaming all sides for violence at a far-right rally in Charlottesville.
At the rally, Trump did not identify Sen.
"If Republican Senate doesn't get rid of the Filibuster Rule & go to a simple majority, which the Dems would do, they are just wasting time!", he said.
"One vote away. I will not mention any names - very presidential". There had been no arrests or major incidents when Trump took the stage. More than half of the people polled, 55 percent, said that there is too much prejudice in America today, while 40 percent said there is too much political correctness. Addressing thousands of supporters at the Phoenix Convention Center, Trump accused media organizations of being "dishonest" and said many reporters don't want the country to succeed.
Poll-takers also asked respondents to share the first word that came to mind when they thought of Trump. "I won't do it tonight because I don't want to cause any controversy. Sad", said Cooper, mimicking Trump's Twitter vocabulary.
