Trump Turns on GOP Again

President Donald Trump jumped back into the roiling controversy over his response to a violent rally of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia as he decried the “foolish” removal of Confederate monuments and attacked two Republican senators who criticized him.

In a series of tweets Thursday, Trump said it was “sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments.” He wrote that history can’t be changed but “you can learn from it” and that “the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!”

He also accused one Republican senator of a “disgusting lie” and plugged a primary opponent of another GOP critic.
