Donald Trump: I didn’t have all the facts for first statement on Charlottesville violence

A defiant President Trump said Tuesday that he didn’t blame white supremacists initially for violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, because he didn’t have all the facts at the time.

“When I make a statement, I like to be correct,” Mr. Trump said at a contentious press conference in New York. “This event just happened. Before I make a statement, I like to know the facts. I don’t want to rush into a statement.”

He said, “Frankly, we still don’t know all the facts.”

“The driver of the car is a murderer,” the president said of a white man who drove his car into a crowd of protesters.
