Meantime, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has issues a scathing statement this morning regarding the president’s reaction to the race-fueled attacks in Charlottesville, VA, and is calling on the Mr. Trump to apologize:

“I will dispense for now from discussion of the moral character of the president’s Charlottesville statement. Whether he intended to or not, what he communicated caused racist to rejoice, minorities to week, and the vast heart of America to mourn. His apologist strain to explain that he didn’t mean what we heard. But what we heard is not reality, and unless it is addressed by the president as such, with unprecedented candor and strength, there may commence an unraveling of our national fabric.”
