Left-leaning news sites are still hammering on Trump and his administration's response to Charlottesville, while right-wing sites focus on the destruction coming from the "alt-left" and other stories. President Trump might have promised to bring healing and unity, but his off-the-cuff speech about Charlottesville yesterday only seems to have driven division.

Left-Leaning:

  1. Daily Beast: "'Clean up on aisle Trump': Aides Shocked by Latest Presser"
  2. HuffPost: "All the President's Men" featuring a photo of protestors bearing torches on Friday night
  3. ThinkProgress: "Fox News website features story glorifying running over liberal protestors with cars"
  4. Salon: "GOP Zealot Blames 'Hard Left'"
  5. MSNBC: "Maddow: Racism 'a persistent infection' in white American culture'"

Right Leaning:

  1. Daily Caller: "Sin of O-mission. EXCLUSIVE: Obama Never Told 21 States Russians Were Hacking Their Voting Systems"
  2. Breitbart: "Next on Liberals' List For Destruction: Confederate Carvings at Stone Mountain Memorial"
  3. The Washington Times: "Trump says 'alt-left' also to blame for Charlottesville violence, warns against eradicating statues"
  4. The Blaze: "Black Lives Matter: All Confederate symbols should be banned"
  5. Fox News: "'Entirely Correct' WH stands by Trump in blaming both sides for Charlottesville violence"

President Trump on Saturday signed four executive actions to provide relief from economic damage sustained during the coronavirus pandemic after talks between the White House and Democratic leadership collapsed Friday afternoon.
