>> US President Donald Trump is in New York Tuesday with plans to announce an infrastructure initiative. But he's been unable to escape the outcry that followed his initial failure to blame white supremacists, for a weekend of violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. On Tuesday, a fourth business leader quit the White House Manufacturing Counsel in protest over the President's statements.

Trump hitting back on Twitter saying, for every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Counsel, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on, jobs. Critics pointed out the President appeared quicker to attack those who resigned from the Council, than he was to blame white supremacists for the death of a demonstrator in Charlottesville.

>> Racism is evil. And those who cause violence and its name are criminal and thugs, including the KKK, Neo-Nazis, white supremacists.>> But after making those remarks on Monday, the President left the room after a combative exchange with the news reporter.>> Can we ask you some more questions then, sir?

>> It doesn't bother me at all, but you know I like real news, not fake news, you're fake news.>> The President continuing this threat on Twitter writing, made additional remarks on Charlottesville, and realize once again that the fake news media will never be satisfied, truly bad people.
