Two Fox News Host Clash over Charlottesville and Trump’s Response to Violence

On Tuesday, two Fox News hosts got into a heated debate when discussing the violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

One host said the violence was partially fueled by President Donald Trump.

During a segment on Fox News’ The Five, co-hosts Juan Williams and Jesse Watters debated the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville and whether the president’s condemnation of the groups involved was sufficient enough.

“Juan, you’re looking at the president today, didn’t really give any ground when it comes to both sides. How do you feel about that?” Waters asked Williams after playing a clip of Trump’s remarks condemning the violence.

“I just don’t understand why he felt the need to double down,” Williams said of Trump’s press conference Tuesday, where he blamed both the “alt-left” and “alt-right” for the violence.

“Instead, he just dived back into the mess,” Williams added.

Watters said violence from both sides was unacceptable that day, and the president did nothing wrong by denouncing all forms of hatred and violence.

“One is racist and hateful, and the other is a bunch of counter-protesters looking for trouble,” Watters said.

“They came with guns, Jesse,” Williams said, referring to white nationalists and KKK members at the rally.

Watters said many demonstrators showed up to protest the city’s removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

“The white supremacists are despicable human beings that shouldn’t exist in America,” Watters said. “But… there is a part of society that says you know what, if we’re just going to bring down Confederate statues – that’s the difference between that person and someone wearing a cloak.”

“I don’t know why you are feeling the need to defend Donald Trump or the alt-right,” Williams said.

Trump expressed his concerns Tuesday surrounding efforts to remove the United States monuments of Confederate soldiers.

“This week it’s Robert E. Lee … I wonder is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after … Where does it stop?” Trump said.

Trump disavowed hate groups Monday at the White House, where he specifically denounced neo-Nazis and white nationalist groups in response to the violent rally over the weekend.

“Racism is evil — and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,” Trump said.
