Us President Donald Trump's failure of leadership on Charlottesville violence is another sign of a presidency in peril

       Us President Donald Trump's insistence that both sides were responsible for the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, has turned what was a fumbling presidency into what now appears to be one on the verge of total collapse.
"You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that, but I'll say it right now," Trump told reporters at a press availability Tuesday in New York City.
That stance was a reversal from comments Trump made 24 hours earlier, condemning the white supremacists and neo-Nazis who had gathered in Charlottesville to protest the removal of a confederate statue. It was, however, broadly in line with what Trump said yesterday even as the protests were raging -- arguing that there was plenty of blame "on many sides" for the violence.
