President Trump tweeted out his campaign slogan on Wednesday morning a day after holding a heavily criticized news conference where he said “both sides” were to blame for the violence at a white nationalist rally in Virginia.
“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!,” the president posted on the social messaging site.
Trump on Tuesday came to the defense of alt-right groups – including white supremacists, the KKK and neo-Nazis – that clashed with counter-protesters in Charlottesville over the weekend.
”You look at both sides. I think there is blame on both sides. I have no doubt about it,” the president said during a news conference in the Trump Tower.
The briefing was expected to be about the administration’s infrastructure plan, but went off the rails when the media began asking Trump questions about his shifting comments on the unrest in Charlottesville where a woman was killed when a man plowed his car into a crowd of counter-protesters.
Earlier on Wednesday, Trump retweeted a ”Fox News” segment about his Trump Tower news conference.
“.@POTUS: “Our infrastructure will again be the best in the world. We used to have the greatest infrastructure anywhere in the world,” the tweet said.
