In the second game of the Ohio State baseball team’s season, coach Bob Todd decided to start Brett McKinney on the mound.The right-hander instantly impressed spectators by striking out the first three batters he faced. McKinney earned the win, going five innings without allowing a run and striking out eight in the process. That start would be impressive for any pitcher, much less a freshman making his first collegiate appearance. For the 19-year-old McKinney, it was a long-awaited, glorious moment.“It was so surreal. [It was] everything I worked for and everything I worked at,” McKinney said of the win. “My dad and my brother were able to come down and see the game, so that was really cool.”For McKinney, having his father, Chuck, and older brother, Chad, in attendance was even more special because they are the two most influential people in his baseball career. At the age of two McKinney began playing tee ball with his brother as they both looked up to their father, who played for the Cincinnati Reds.“Baseball has been in my family forever,” McKinney said. “My dad was a big influence. He’s always been coaching me so it’s nice.”It’s now Brett’s turn to continue the family tradition of playing baseball. But that wasn’t necessarily always his plan.At Badin High School, McKinney was a two-sport star, playing baseball in the spring and football in the fall. “I always had the dream I could be good enough in both [baseball and football] that I could choose one or the other,” McKinney said. “As I got older, I realized I wasn’t going to be big enough to play football, so I started to concentrate more on baseball.”While he might not have the size for football, McKinney is larger than life on the mound. At 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, McKinney is an intimidator when he toes the rubber for the Buckeyes. And the coaching staff couldn’t be happier that he turned his attention to baseball and OSU.Both Todd and coach Eric Parker, who works with the pitchers, have been impressed with the freshman so far.“He’s doing a great job. It’s always an adjustment that first year coming in from high school,” Parker said of McKinney. “He’s working hard, making adjustments and getting better each week.”McKinney is adjusting quickly to his new surroundings and has already gelled with the veteran pitchers on the team.“All the upperclassmen have been great helping me out with different things. Everybody has done a great job taking me under their wing and teaching me the tricks,” McKinney said.Todd will look for McKinney to learn a new trick: moving from the rotation to the bullpen, as the Buckeyes enter Big Ten play this week. McKinney has started in all six of his appearances this season but will now transition to the bullpen as Alex Wimmers, Dean Wolosiansky and Drew Rucinski fill out the rotation.“He’s come in and given us some quality innings, and he’s trying to be one of the guys that is going to help us either as a set-up guy or a closer. As a freshman that’s awful tough to do, when you make the adjustment from high school to a Division 1 program,” Todd said.While it may be a tough move, Parker is confident his freshman hurler can do it.“One thing I really liked about him through the recruiting process is that he has always wanted the ball. He’s ready to take on whatever role,” Parker said. “It looks like we’re going to need him in the bullpen here early. And we feel confident he’s going to be able to handle whatever role we give him.”Whether starting or relieving, the one thing McKinney can certainly do is strike batters out. In his six appearances, McKinney has piled up 30 punch-outs, which ranks him second on the team and first among Big Ten freshmen.McKinney and the rest of the staff will look to continue to strike out opponents when OSU hosts Toledo today at 2:05 p.m. at Bill Davis Stadium. read more

first_imgGalantas Gold has commenced operations at its Omagh processing plant, in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, sourcing feed from the underground Kearney gold vein development.The processing plant has had a recent upgrade to some sections and is expected to operate part-time until production stoping commences, anticipated late in 2018 or early in 2019.The plant operates a froth flotation system for production of a gold-silver concentrate. This process removes the sulphide minerals and gold and concentrates them into a product suitable for smelter treatment. The concentrate is then exported, via Belfast port, to a smelter.Galantas’ Omagh development reached the main Kearney gold vein back in June. The vein intersection is around 15 m below the base of the Kearney open pit (pictured).A horizontal development tunnel, driven on vein at this level in both directions, has provided this limited mill feed.The decline tunnel is planned to be extended at depth, along with construction of a second means of egress. This should provide access to lower levels and permit stoping between the first two horizontal levels.A new 4 t capacity Epiroc LHD has been ordered on a rental-purchase basis to improve productivity in loading operations from the smaller cross-section vein drives. It is equipped with radio remote control, which enhances safety in stope mucking operations, and is expected to be delivered next month.last_img read more

first_img Jan 27th 2017, 8:00 PM Short URL WHEN VENUS AND Serena Williams step out onto the court of the Rod Laver Arena on Saturday morning, it will mark the culmination of a fairytale Australian Open that nobody saw coming.It was a tournament that saw presumed favourites vanquished early on and old greats afforded another moment in the sun. Players like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Mirjana Lučić-Baroni dominated their opponents to the point that people were left scratching their heads and asking, “What year is this again?”Fitting then that the women’s final will feature Venus and Serena going head to head in a Grand Slam final for the first time since 2009. After all, it doesn’t get any more vintage than that. #TBT 1991, Compton, with Dad#tennis #coaching— EleVen by Venus (@EleVenbyVenus) October 8, 2015 In that open letter in 2006, Chris Evert cautioned that Serena was in the prime of her health and ought not to squander it. But both Serena and Venus have demonstrated time and time again that age ain’t nothing but a number and showed there are no barriers that they can’t overcome.After all, they’ve endured racist and sexist remarks – most recently in 2014 when the President of the Russian Tennis Federation pejoratively referred to them as the “Williams Brothers”. They’ve fought through injury, illness and immense personal turmoil. They’ve campaigned for equal prize money for female tennis players.They’ve had their bodies scrutinised and analysed to a frankly insane degree. They’ve failed to land the same lucrative sponsorship deals as peers like Maria Sharapova. And they’ve more than paid the price on the rare occasions they’ve lost their temper on the court.Despite all of that, however, they have never given up or retreated. Thanks to tenacious parents, a tremendous force of will, and unparalleled athleticism and power, Serena and Venus have left an indelible mark on a sport that didn’t always welcome them with open arms.The two little girls that grew up playing on the scrappy courts of Compton have turned the lily-white sport of tennis on its head and made it their own. If anybody embodies the fabled American dream, it’s Venus and Serena Williams. Share Tweet Email Venus and Serena Williams started playing tennis when they were children under the tutelage of their father, Richard Williams. Before Venus and Serena were even born, Richard had his heart set on turning his children into professional tennis players.The story goes that he was watching the television one day when he stumbled upon coverage of the French Open. The winner, Virginia Ruzici, won $40,000 for her troubles, a figure that impressed Richard.He immediately set about immersing himself in the world of tennis and better acquainting himself with the game, so that by the time Venus and Serena were old enough to hold a racket, he was well placed to coach them.A few years ago, he relayed the conversation he had with his wife Oracene Price to CNN. “I went to my wife and said that we have two kids, and we’ll become rich. They’re going to be tennis players.” On Saturday, Venus Williams will vie to become the oldest woman to ever win a Grand Slam in the Open era — a record currently held by her sister — while Serena Williams will be bidding to win her 23rd title and become the most successful player in the Open Era.Either way, tennis fans can expect a fairytale ending. As Serena Williams herself put it, “A Williams is going to win the tournament.”Set your alarm! Australian Open gets its dream final between Federer and Nadal > Image: AP/Press Association Images Image: AP/Press Association Images Champion. Again. Serena Williams joins Steffi Graf on 22 Grand Slam titles after clinching a 7th #Wimbledon crown— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 9, 2016 Source: Wimbledon/Twitter 32,070 Views Venus Ebony Star Williams was born in June 1980. Thirteen months later, she was followed by Serena Jameka Williams. The family moved to Compton in 1983  — Richard wanted to toughen the girls up — and both girls soon started playing tennis.It was clear early on that they had a natural aptitude for the sport, and Richard was soon serving as their full-time coach. They trained in the less-than-salubrious grounds of East Compton Park for many years until they were picked up by Rick Macci, a tennis coach based in Florida.Early on, the girls were regarded as somewhat of an anomaly in their sport. In a recent interview with ESPN, Macci recalled thinking, “Athletes with their body types went to other sports; they didn’t play tennis.”The family moved to Florida when Serena and Venus were aged nine and 10, respectively, to attend Macci’s tennis academy in West Palm Beach, where they remained until 1995. Neither Venus nor Serena participated in many junior tournaments with their father opting instead to focus on preparing them for the professional game.Both girls would turn pro at the age of 14, thus marking the beginning of two of the greatest tennis careers in history. Source: PA Archive/PA ImagesIn 1997, Venus Williams made her Grand Slam debut in the French Open. The 17-year-old lost in the second round. This was soon followed by a first round defeat at Wimbledon. But she came into her own in the US Open and made the final on her first attempt, where she lost to Martina Hingis.The tournament was notable for an incident in the semi-final in which Williams was deliberately bumped by her opponent, Irina Spirlea, during a changeover.At the time, many including Richard Williams speculated that the bump was racially motivated. (Spirlea denied this and later suggested that she was merely putting “the f**king Venus Williams” back in her place after Venus refused to turn for her.)It would not be the last time the issue of race would rear its ugly head, but more on that later. Source: Sean L/YouTubeIn January 1998, Serena Williams made her Grand Slam debut at the Australian Open where she faced none other than Venus Williams in the second round. It was an irresistible match-up.With their white braids and powerful playing style, they were unlike anyone else on the women’s tour. Venus won in straight sets on that occasion, but the match heralded the arrival of a new era of tennis. Source: SerenaWilliamsFans/YouTubeThe first Williams Grand Slam title came in 1999 when Serena defeated the likes of Kim Clijsters, Monica Seles, Lindsay Davenport and finally Martina Hingis to win her first US Open, thus beginning a period of dominance for the Williams sisters.Between 2000 and 2003, Venus and Serena won a combined nine Grand Slam titles — four for Venus and five for Serena. On many occasions, the sisters faced each other in the finals, leading to an unprecedented sibling rivalry that the sport had never seen before.In the midst of all this joy and success, however, was an ugly incident at Indian Wells, a high-profile tournament played in California. At the 2001 tournament, Venus was scheduled to play Serena in the semi-final, but withdrew due to injury at short notice, leading to accusations of match-fixing.Serena progressed to the final by default. During the final, she was booed and jeered by the crowd, who were still peeved at having been denied a Serena-Venus match. It was a disorienting sight considering she should have been the home crowd’s favourite.A match report from the time describes the hostile atmosphere:The celebration was awkward. As she began a parade queen’s wave at the crowd, boos mixed with a smattering of applause.Richard Williams later claimed that he had been heckled and subjected to racist abuse by members of the crowd. As a result, the sisters would boycott the tournament for 14 years. Source: BBC/YouTubeBecause of the sheer longevity of their careers, it’s easy to forget that Serena and Venus have endured many dips in form.Indeed, in contrast to the highs of the early 2000s, 2004 to 2006 was somewhat of a fallow period for the sisters. There were victories, sure  — Venus won Wimbledon in 2005, while Serena won the Australian Open the same year —  but not at the same rate as in previous years.They suffered enormous personal trauma like the murder of their sister Yetunde Price in 2003 and their parents’ divorce in 2002. They were hampered by injuries. And their commitment to the sport was repeatedly called into question.At one point, Chris Evert even took it upon herself to write an open letter to Serena Williams in Tennis Magazine, advising her that she was “tarnishing her legacy” by devoting too much time to “distractions” like guest appearances on ER and The Bernie Mac Show. Serena WIlliams guest-starring on an episode of The Bernie Mac Show. Source: YouTubeA return to form soon followed, however, with the sisters climbing up the rankings once more and adding to their trophy cabinet.Serena defied the odds to win the Australian Open in 2007 as an unseeded player. Venus Williams won her fifth Wimbledon title in 2008, forever solidifying her status as the ‘Queen of the Grass’. And the sisters won a doubles title at the Beijing Olympics.But like clockwork, these highs were soon countered by extreme lows. In 2011, Serena Williams was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism in her lungs and later had to undergo surgery to remove a hematoma related to the embolism.That same year, Venus Williams was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder known as Sjogren’s Syndrome. Her ranking and form plummeted that year and she has since struggled to maintain the consistency she enjoyed early on in her career. Source: EMPICS SportBut while Venus faltered, Serena thrived. She returned from her bout of illness with a new vigour and sense of purpose. In June 2012, she hired a new coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, who brought out the best in her and has since helped oversee nine Grand Slam titles.By September 2015, Serena Williams was on the precipice of something historic. She had won the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the French Open, and was looking to complete the calendar slam, as well as her 22nd career Grand Slam, a total that would bring her in line with Steffi Graf’s record.The build-up was intense with the majority of pre-tournament coverage centred on Serena’s legacy and her place in history. The New York Times even published a piece by the noted poet Claudia Rankine on The Meaning of Serena Williams.And why not? It was a sure thing that she’d win, right? She was in the form of her life.Wrong.Her dreams of a 22nd title came to a crashing halt when Italian player Roberta Vinci shocked everyone — even herself — and defeated her in the semi-final, spoiling the narrative everyone had been spinning for the previous fortnight.“Serena Williams’s loss to Roberta Vinci was, beyond any reasonable doubt, a gargantuan upset,” wrote The New York Times.But if there’s one thing Serena Williams has proved time and time again, it’s that she has the ability to pick herself up, dust herself off and go at it again. Number 22 may have eluded her in New York, but it wasn’t off the cards just yet. Source: Jon BuckleMeanwhile, Venus Williams was making great strides and enjoying a much-welcomed return to form of sorts. In 2015, she made two Grand Slam quarter-finals, her best performance since 2010.She built on this success in 2016 and reached the semi-final in Wimbledon at the age of 36, which made her practically a senior citizen in tennis terms. (Her opponent in the third round was a 19-year-old named Daria Kasatkina.)But Venus maintained that age wasn’t a factor.I don’t think anyone feels older. You have this infinity inside of you that feels like you could go forever.She bowed out in the semi-final, losing to Angelique Kerber.Kerber’s opponent in the final? None other than Serena Williams.At Wimbledon, Serena Williams was in flying form, winning all but one of her matches in straight sets. But she had suffered a defeat in the Australian Open final to Kerber just six months earlier.Would the German stand in her way again? In a word, no.Serena was ferocious and hungry, and won her 22nd title in straight sets, 7-5 6-3. In doing so, Serena cemented her place in history and reminded everyone that you can never count a Williams out.

Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“In the second half we were the better team, we kept the ball and created good chances but we couldn’t score.”“You need to be consistent as a team. Week in, week out you need to play well enough to pick up points. This is the most competitive and demanding league, so you have to be ready to play one game against a team who likes to keep possession, then the next against someone who is more direct.”“Every game is different and you have to be prepared to stop this. Then when we have the ball we need to play like we did in the second half.”“At this moment, all we need to do is learn and improve mentally, to be ready to play in the way we did for the second half for the 90 minutes.”last_img read more

A three-year-old boy saluting his father’s flag-draped casket as it left St. Matthew’s Cathedral.So much of the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, in November of 1963, has been indelibly etched in the minds of the American people.Picture of President Kennedy in the limousine in Dallas, Texas, on Main Street, minutes before the assassination. Also in the presidential limousine are Jackie Kennedy, Texas Governor John Connally, and his wife, Nellie.But one of the most heart-wrenching moments of those fateful few days happened in the upstairs family quarters of the White House, far from public view.It was there that the Kennedy children, Caroline, then almost six, and her little brother John Jr., age three, learned that the father they so adored had died.President Kennedy’s family leaving his funeral at the U.S. Capitol BuildingMany believe that Jacqueline Kennedy broke the news to her two children, shortly after flying back to the White House from Dallas. (The 2016 movie, Jackie, starring Natalie Portman, would perpetuate this myth.)In reality, the task fell to the children’s beloved nanny, Maud Shaw, at the request of the First Lady’s mother, Janet Auchincloss. Believing that her daughter was too distraught — and had endured too much — to face her children, she reached out to the nurse.The Kennedys and the Connallys in the presidential limousine moments before the assassination.According to William Manchester in his book The Death of a President, a 1967 account of the Kennedy assassination and the days that followed, Miss Shaw was speechless. “Please, no.

In her 1966 memoir, White House Nannie: My Years with Caroline and John Kennedy Jr., Shaw recounted, “I sat on the edge of [Caroline]’s bed [that night] and felt tears well up in my eyes. Caroline looked up at me. ‘What’s the matter, Miss Shaw? Why are you crying?’ I took her in my arms. ‘I can’t help crying, Caroline, because I have some very sad news.’ Then I told her.”Caroline with her father aboard the yacht Honey Fitz off the coast of Hyannis, Massachusetts at age five, August 25, 1963.Manchester’s book offers additional details of the moment, with Shaw reportedly telling the little girl:“Your father has been shot.

Now he has the best friend anyone could have.” She paused. “God gives each of us a thing to do.

Shaw sat beside her on the bed, patting her head until she fell asleep, then she tiptoed out of the room and settled into a rocking chair in her own room. There she sat, in the dark, keeping her ears pealed for the slightest sound from either child as the night wore on.Shaw, who spent seven and a half years with the Kennedy family — starting just days before Caroline was born — would retire and return to her native England in 1965. It would be a great loss for the family. Shaw was described by her nephew, Ian Roberts, as “one of the classic English nannies,” a woman with a firm hand and a ready smile. But she was more than just the children’s governess.The Kennedy family in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, in 1963.She “was probably their best friend at the time,” Jackie’s former Secret Service agent, Clint Hill, told People in 2015. “I nursed the children from the cradle and came to love them just as if they had been my own,” Shaw wrote in White House Nannie. “Happily, they repaid me with their own love and affection.”Shaw would see Kennedys once more after her retirement. In 1965, Jackie took Caroline and John Jr. to England for the dedication of a memorial to their late father, and the children accompanied their former nanny on a short trip to the quaint coastal town of Sheerness, where Shaw resided with her sister Hettie.This would be their last time together, but they would keep in touch through letters over the years. Adams died in 1988, at age 85.Read another story from us: Jacqueline Kennedy’s packing list for tragic Dallas trip becomes publicIn her memoir, Shaw noted that she had worked for “all sorts of people and their children in many parts of the world.” But the Kennedy children held a special place in her heart. “I have a deeper love for them than all the others,” Shaw told The Daily Times-News in 1966, “perhaps because we have seen so much together.”last_img read more

Venezuelas crackdown on sales of everyday goods risks alienating loyalists

first_imgCARACAS, Venezuela — The sprawling street market that radiates outward from the metro station in Petare, Caracas’ largest slum, is the retail equivalent of an anti-Target.There’s no organization to it. Tube socks and school supplies are sold beside giant pyramids of pineapple and piled yucca. Leopard-print hot pants stretch over mannequin buttocks next to the stinky stalls of fishmongers.The bazaar was known until this month as one of the city’s biggest open-air black markets, the place to find all the scarce items that shoppers must queue up for hours to get in supermarkets, or can’t find at all. Earlier this year, toilet paper and cornmeal were scarce; lately it’s diapers and deodorant that have “gotten lost,” as Venezuelans say.Authorities mostly turned a blind eye to the informal commerce, but late last month Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro went on TV to decree a ban on street sales of coffee, eggs, shampoo and some 50 other “regulated” items whose prices are capped by the government. He ordered the National Guard to police market stalls for such items as mayonnaise and powdered milk, and threatened to prosecute recidivist violators. Shoppers visit a supermarket in Caracas on Oct. 29, 2014 after a list of products that have weekly restrictions per person was published, following a presidential decree to fight chronic shortages of basic goods. Juan Barreto/AFPThe crackdown is tricky for Maduro. In Petare and elsewhere, it risks alienating some of the poor Venezuelans who had long been loyal to Maduro’s predecessor, the late Hugo Chávez, but are increasingly unhappy with his understudy.“Maduro ya se maduró,” quipped vendor Maribel Nieble, with a play on the president’s last name that meant “Maduro has turned rotten.”She had a sorry-looking pile of bananas on her stand, but it was really just a facade. Hidden underneath in a dirty fruit crate were several illicit bottles of Downy-brand laundry detergent and cooking oil. When a bus pulled up and Nieble didn’t see any troops, she quickly set out her wares, concealing them again once the crowds thinned.“I feel like a drug dealer,” she said.In stores, the detergent’s price was capped at the equivalent of about 60 cents, if using the government’s highest official exchange rate of 50 bolivars per dollar. Nieble was selling her Downy for twice that.“I have six kids and two grandchildren,” she said. “I’m just trying to survive.”Maduro says this standard type of markup is tantamount to “theft.” He blames Venezuela’s scarcities and soaring inflation on an “economic war” waged by business owners, shopkeepers and others allegedly trying to undermine Venezuela’s socialist government by hoarding, price-gouging and sneaking goods across the border for sale in Colombia.“These right-wing contraband groups are still at work, with their anti-national and parasitic spirit, riding on the backs of the people and sucking their blood,” Maduro said Tuesday, assuring TV viewers that the government “had neutralized the perverse effects of the economic war” in 2014.In recent months, Maduro’s Twitter feed has been a rotating gallery of seizure photos showing contraband captured along the border. The foodstuffs, which are worth far more on the Colombia side, are often arranged in the style of a narcotics bust, even though the sacks are filled with flour and sugar. One photo last week showed a pickup truck jammed with so much beef that the meat was practically falling out onto the highway. En sector Guarero, en la Guajira, GNB incauta 530 pipas y 70400 lts de combustible. La lucha continúa!— Vladimir Padrino L. (@vladimirpadrino) November 13, 2014 Related posts:Venezuela rating cut by Moody’s as oil plunge hits finances Venezuela struggles with getting basic goods under Chávez’s successor Showdown looms for Venezuela, as protest leader Leopoldo López vows new march Venezuelan cartoonist fired after sketch slamming health care This oil-rich country has the world’s largest petroleum reserves but also one of its highest inflation rates, at 63 percent, and shoppers have long been accustomed to store shelves stocked with imported goods. But with hard currency scarce, oil prices falling and the government more dependent on crude exports than ever, a kind of consumer psychosis has set in here.The supermarket lines can make camping out for an iPhone look like a breeze. Outside one holiday appliance sale in Caracas last week, some shoppers said they had been waiting for two days.Well-to-do Venezuelans shield themselves from inflation by putting their money in U.S. dollars in accounts abroad, but the poor have turned to trading in items such as cooking oil, shaving cream and hair conditioner, the stuff that often gets “lost.”The government now requires shoppers to give their names and identification card numbers to cashiers in the checkout aisle, and Maduro has ordered the installation of fingerprint scanners to make sure Venezuelans don’t exceed their purchase limits.Related: As oil plummets, Venezuela goes from bad to worseMaking matters worse is an endemic culture of corruption that puts an additional squeeze on the few remaining forms of local industry and legitimate commerce.Pedro Zambrano, a trucker, said he delivers 6,000 pounds of cheese every week to the capital from his home state of Tachira, along the border with Colombia. About half of his would-be profits are eaten up by bribes to inspectors and police along the highways, he said. “All that’s left over goes toward keeping my truck on the road and my kids fed.”Zambrano had come to Petare for a few bottles of cooking oil, which he said cost nearly twice as much along the border. He said Maduro’s complaints about contraband are legitimate, but he scoffed at the claim that the government is trying to stop it.“Until they fix the corruption in the National Guard, nothing will change,” he said.Zambrano said Venezuela’s problems would be fixed when supermarket supplies met consumer demand, but not through escalating enforcement.Those who were taking Maduro at his word in the Petare market already seemed to be paying the price. The president’s decree had prompted Carmen Velasquez to stop illegally selling cooking oil and cornmeal, but no one was buying the tomatoes and cucumbers she was trying to sell instead. Her produce was spoiling in the hot sun.“I’ve already had to throw away one crate, and now the rest of it is going bad,” Velasquez said. “I’m 73 years old. Where else am I going to find a job? How will I eat?”The more-canny vendors, like Nieble, the Downey dealer, weren’t waiting to find out.Nieble had a partner waiting in line at a supermarket a few metro stops away, and they were in touch by cellphone. A new truckload of laundry soap had arrived, and the limit was four bags per person. Her friend would hold a place for her.Nieble didn’t appear to be in any hurry to get there.“There are still 40 people ahead of us in line,” she said.© 2014, The Washington Post Facebook Comments GNB retiene chatarra, gasoil y arroz en Táchira por irregularidades. #CiudadCCS— Ciudad CCS (@CiudadCCS) November 11, 2014last_img read more

returning to his original comments that “many sides” were responsible for the deadly clashes in which a man believed to be a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of anti-racism protesters “What about the alt-left that came charging at the as you say the alt-right Do they have any semblance of guilt” Trump said Tuesday afternoon during a press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower “You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent” he said adding that “there’s blame on both sides” Politicians of all parties criticized Trump’s initial statement on Saturday’s violence in which he also blamed both sides white supremacists including some with Nazi flags as well as anti-racism protesters On Monday Trump condemned the violent attack on a crowd of counter protesters that killed a 32-year-old woman and injured 19 others saying “racism is evil” But with his Tuesday press conference ostensibly about infrastructure Trump returned to his widely panned “both sides” approach “You had some very bad people in that group but you also had people that were very fine people on both sides” Trump said Tuesday “You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of to them a very very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E Lee to another name” The park where white supremacist groups had gathered to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen Robert E Lee was renamed Emancipation Park in June “Are we going to take down statues to George Washington How about Thomas Jefferson” Trump said identifying both former presidents as slave owners “You know what Its fine Youre changing history youre changing culture And you had people and Im not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists because they should be condemned totally but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists and the press has treated them very unfairly” The remarks drew quick condemnation again from Republicans and Democrats Meanwhile former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke thanked Trump for his “honesty & courage” Asked as he was leaving whether he plans to visit
