Executive Director of JCORE condemns Trump's response to Charlottesville protests

Dr Edie Friedman, Executive Director of JCORE expressed her disbelief at the President's take on the current situation unfolding in Charlottesville, where White Supremacist and Alt Right groups gathered to protest against the planned removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E Lee.

Edie said: "The fact that we're even having this conversation is unbelievable. If this is the new normal - that the only person to praise the President's behaviour is the head of the Ku Klux Klan, heaven help us".
