President Trump is getting bashed by his own party members for blaming “both sides” of violence in Charlottesville.

Republican lawmakers turned on President Donald Trump after he said Tuesday that neo-Nazis and ‘alt-left’ liberal extremists shared responsibility for violence that turned deadly over the weekend in Virginia when a white nationalist ran over a woman with his car.

‘You see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and the baseball bats,’ Trump said in New York, describing hooded counter-protesters who came to Charlottesville to disrupt a white nationalist march.

‘What about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right?’ he challenged reporters on Tuesday. ‘Do they have any semblance of guilt?’

The president also said ‘I do think there’s blame on both sides’ and that there were ‘very fine people’ in the white nationalist crowd who had ‘a permit’ to protest against the removal of a statue of Robert E Lee.
