In a statement, Sen. Lindsey Graham criticized President Trump's press conference on Charlottesville, urging Trump to bring the country together and telling him that his "words are dividing Americans."

On Charlottesville: Graham rejected Trump's "moral equivalency" between white nationalist groups and protesters like Heather Heyer, saying that he is committed to fighting back against the notion that the GOP "has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world."

At the same time: Trump tweeted about Heyer's memorial service, calling her "a truly special young woman" who will be "long remembered by all."
