When it comes to condemning violence, denouncing hate groups, groveling to the left and generally doing what he can to, despite his earlier observations, pretend all the violence came only from one side of Saturday’s tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia, it will never be enough for Leftists and other assorted Trump-haters.
Trump's most recent disavowal of racism will be as effective at warding off accusations of racism as all his previous disavowals of racism.

I would have been happy with any criticism of Antifa. CNN still not satisfied w/ @realDonaldTrump denunciation of KKK. It will ever be enuf.

That’s right. They will hate and criticize President Trump regardless, and his Monday afternoon tweet shows he firmly grasps the reality of the whole sad situation.
Right after Trump’s Thursday statement, Rush Limbaugh predicted as much:
“I’m gonna tell you this,” Rush said. “It isn’t gonna be over. This is not gonna stop, the haranguing. And what does that mean? It means even though the president gave these groups that have been bellyaching the exact words they want to hear, they’re not going to stop, which means they’re actually after something else. And whatever it is, it isn’t peace, and it isn’t justice, and it isn’t freedom, and it isn’t tolerance in America. And they’re going to continue because their objective is to totally turn things upside down. They’re not interested in resolutions.”
“Nothing that Donald Trump says or does will ever be enough,” admitted Greg Gutfeld on Fox News’ The Five.
But those who really matter seemed to appreciate Trump’s words and to take them at face value. Particularly the mother of Heather Heyer, the victim who was tragically killed by 20-year-old domestic terrorist James A. Fields, who drove his 2010 Dodge Challenger into a crowd of counter protesters on Saturday.
“Thank you, President Trump, for those words of comfort and for denouncing those who promote violence and hatred,” said the victim’s mother, Susan Bro, in a statement.

Reaction to NBC’s tweet was varied but seemed to be mostly classy and sympathetic, besides the ubiquitous Trump-hate (which we won’t give attention to by reposting!).
Wow ‼️The mother thanks @potus and the left media are like Rabid Dogs‼️
This woman has a great heart, and has no hate in it. May God help her through her grief.

No one knows until it happens to them. I’m sure she’s still in shock over such a sudden loss of her vibrant young adult child.
