Trump vs. Media on Charlottesville

Donald Trump has come under a lot of unfair fire for his “failure” to disavow white supremacy fast enough after the Charlottesville incident on August 12.  Trump was criticized for getting into it with most of the gathered media.  He was absolutely right.  He condemned terrorism, white supremacy.
