The tenure and ouster of Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s chief strategist and champion of his nationalist impulses, exposed deep fissures within the Trump-era Republican party that are hindering efforts to kick-start a sputtering GOP legislative agenda.
Drowned out by the counterdemonstrators, the handful of rally attendees concluded their event without speeches from planned speakers. Police said 27 people were arrested. President Trump praised police, then later tweeted support for protesters "speaking out against bigotry and hate."
Recent condemnations of the president by GOP leaders have been harsher, more frequent and sometimes more personal. They are caught between disgust over his failure to unequivocally condemn neo-Nazism, a desire to advance a conservative agenda and fears of rupturing the Trump-GOP coalition ahead of the 2018 elections.
“The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful.”
— Bob Corker (Tenn.)
“President Trump is the greatest thing that’s happened to this country. I consider it a Biblical miracle that he’s there.”
— Luther Strange (Ala.)
“There is no moral equivalence between those who are inciting hate and division and those who took to the streets to make it clear that those views are unacceptable.”
— Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
“I give all public officials kind of a little bit of slack in terms of not necessarily saying the perfect thing.”
— Ron Johnson (Wis.)
“I’m worried.”
— Susan Collins (Maine)

The Fix
Analysis
Take a look at how various senators have responded to Trump's overall rhetoric since he was inaugurated, and gauge how they have reacted to the president's comments on the Charlottesville protests.
Last weekend’s Unite the Right rally, which ended with one dead and dozens injured, was a collection of virtually every kind of white nationalist the U.S. has ever known — KKK, skinheads and neo-Nazis. Amid them were young men who appeared clean-cut and unashamed. Who were they? And what in their relatively short lives had so aggrieved them that they felt compelled to drive across the country for a rally?
