(Studio: Anderson Cooper) What President Trump said yesterday about the rally & violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, introduced. [TRUMP - says not all the demonstrators were white supremacists: they wanted to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee, the next day there were "bad people."] The night marchers with torches chanting "you will not replace us" & "Jews will not replace us" shown. Trump's liquidating of business advisory boards after CEOs quit over his initial remarks about Charlottesville, the affirmation of values by heads of the five military branches & statement from both Presidents Bush noted.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; Bedminister, New Jersey: Jim Acosta) The reaction of the Trump administration to the backlash to his comments yesterday with no resignations from the White House staff, what V.A. Secretary Jim Shulkin†† said/did not say about Trump's remarks discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The Vice News video of the night marchers with torches chanting "Jews will not replace us" & the car hitting counter-demonstrators shown. [From Charlottesville, "Vice News Tonight"'s Ellie REEVE†- offers views on how well organized the Tiki torch marchers were, knowing what they were doing: a planned protest, how Trump exceeds the expectations of white nationalists, how veterans were radicalized in Iraq & committed to security, how these men feel they are oppressed & that white western culture is under assault.] [In Reeve's interview, white nationalist Christopher CANTWELL - says "stupid animals" struck the vehicle so he hit the gas: he was justified.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) [In earlier interview by Reeve, CANTWELL - explains how he is trying to make himself more capable of violence; talks about that bastard Jared Kushner with that beautiful girl; shows all the weapons that he carries, how nobody was killed unjustly.] [Now, CANTWELL - says we have done everything in our power to keep this peaceful: how our enemies will not stop.]
