>> President Donald Trump not backing down from his remarks casting blame on both sides for the deadly violence in Charlottesville Virginia where a rally by neo-Nazis and KKK members clashed with antiracists demonstrators. He made the comment last month after suspected white supremacist killed one women and injured 19 when he rammed his car into a crowd of protestors.
But on Thursday, he insisted that pretty bad dudes in the leftist group Antifa were at least partially to blame.>> I think especially in light of the advent of Antifa, if you look at what's going on there, you have some pretty bad dudes on the other side also.
Now, because of what's happened since then with Antifa, you look at, really, what's happened since Charlottesville, a lot of people are saying, in fact a lot of people have written, gee, Trump might have a point. I said you've got some very bad people on the other side also, which is true.
>> That's Trump talking to reporters aboard Air Force 1, after he was asked about his recent meeting with Senator Tim Scott, the only Black Republican in the US Senate. But these remarks coming the same day he signed a Congressional Resolution, condemning white supremacy, and calling the violence in Charlottesville a domestic terror attack.
That resolution sailed through both houses of Congress earlier this week with bipartisan support.
