The group said it was concerned about Trump'™s response to Charlottesville, which was widely criticized after the president said there had been violence on both sides and suggested not everyone marching in the white supremacist rally was a white supremacist.'œWhat about the 'alt-left' that came charging at, as you say, the 'alt-right,' do they have any semblance of guilt?" Trump asked reporters following the incident in comments carried by CNN. "What about the fact they came charging with clubs in hands, swinging clubs, do they have any problem? I think they do.""You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. Nobody wants to say it, but I will say it right now," he said in comments viewed by some as an attempt to placate white supremacist groups.Richmond suggested on Twitter that the president'™s reaction to Charlottesville had made many people question whether he should be running the country. "Am I concerned about high crimes & misdemeanors? Absolutely. Am I concerned about his fitness to serve? Absolutely,' Richmond wrote. .@RepRichmondAugust 22, 2017  Request Reprint or Submit Correction Join the Discussion Most Read Sign up for our Newsletter Sign up Update your preferences » Related Stories White Supremacist Cries Over Possible Arrest Warrant Will Trump's Charlottesville Response Haunt Him?
