With the events that unfolded over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the so-called president's bad "many sides" critique, now may be the hardest time for a Trump supporter who isn't a white supremacist to keep up that "Make America Great Again" spirit.

His condemnation of the removal of Confederate statues and monuments in numerous US cities was delivered a day after he announced the disbanding of presidential business advisory councils following the resignation of a parade of corporate executives over his Charlottesville remarks.

He added that removing Confederate monuments would take away "beauty" from cities and they'd be "greatly missed". "Some times parts of our history don't deserve praise or honor".
Shortly before Graham's statement Thursday, the President accused the South Carolina Republican of lying about his response to Charlottesville. Earlier Thursday, Trump attacked two sitting Republican senators who have criticized his response to the Charlottesville attack - and whose support he needs to get his agenda through Congress.

"I hear she was a fine, a really - actually, an incredible young woman", Trump said.
Mr Flake, another vocal Trump critic, also called for direct condemnation of white supremacy groups.
The president was met with a torrent of criticism when he spoke out on Tuesday in defence of the white supremacist groups that gathered in Charlottesville, over the weekend for a "Unite the Right" rally.

"And nobody wants to say that".
"After what he said about my child, and - it's not that I saw somebody else's tweets about him, I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters like Ms. Heyer with the KKK and the white supremacists", Heyer's mother, Susan Bro, told "Good Morning America" on Friday.
Many Republican lawmakers - including Graham and Flake - have distanced themselves from Trump's remarks, pointing out that white supremacist groups came armed with guns, torches, and Nazi flags, chanting racist and anti-Jewish slogans.
A spokesman for Republican U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said it was up to U.S. states to determine which statues were displayed on their behalf in the Capitol building. Bro initially thanked the president for his words of comfort and for denouncing those promoting violence and hatred but her stance changed after watching the news clip. "The people of SC will remember!"
