Many writers on Tuesday took to Twitter to react to President Trump's remarks on the violence in Charlottesville in which he walked back his previous statement and defended the "Unite the Right" protesters (whom he now says were "very quietly" and "innocently" protesting).
Trump also said there were "very fine people" on both sides, blamed the deadly violence on the "alt-left," and compared Confederate General Robert E. Lee to George Washington.
