Chuck Todd fears Trump’s #Charlottesville statement might have only made things worse

On Saturday, after an attack in Charlottesville, Va. left many injured and one person dead, President Trump tweeted and also made a statement in person:

We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2017

What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives.#Charlottesvillepic.twitter.com/DB22fgnu6L

NBC News’ Chuck Todd said Trump might have only made things worse:

Hard to see how that statement from the POTUS will do anything to tamp things down. He may have just done the opposite

There has been a distinct tone difference between what POTUS said and didn’t say vs many Senate GOPers who did call out the hate by name

There are those on both sides of the aisle who don’t think Trump went nearly far enough in his condemnation, but did Trump’s statements really make things worse?

Journalism in 2017: “I condemn in the strongest terms.” = “He’s making things worse!” https://t.co/N7Wb7YMoqw

Which Senate Dems did you ask to condemn BLM when it was torching cities? https://t.co/4AM5y8y3w5

Maybe Chuck will address those questions and more on Sunday’s Meet the Press.

I swear, he could do exactly what you want and you would still condemn him. #LiberalHate

Indeed! How dare POTUS condemn violence and factionalism and call on all of us to unite as Americans? The nerve of that guy! https://t.co/QP3wLIphHu

Provoking this sort of violence is why Charlottesville’s Resistance government targeted the Confederate monument in the first place. https://t.co/73wm6nQEuC
