Trump Blames Media for Misquoting Him, Then Misquotes Himself

President Donald Trump on Tuesday blamed the press for allegedly misreporting his statements in the aftermath of the white-supremacist-fueled deadly violence that took place in Charlottesville this month, but he left out the fact that he blamed β€œboth sides for the violence.” The comment at the time drew sharp condemnations from across the political spectrum, with Republicans and Democrats saying the president suggested a moral equivalence between the neo-Nazis and the counterprotesters.
