This was what Trump said:
"You have some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me — I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name."
He further went on
"Trump: Well, George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So, will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down- Excuse me. Are we going to take down, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him?
Reporter: I do love Thomas Jefferson-
Trump: OK, good. Well, are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now, are we going to take down his statue? So, you know what? It's fine. You're changing history. You're changing culture and you had people, and
I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists because they should be condemned, totally.
But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats. You got a lot of bad people in the other group, too."
Concerning his Tax returns there is no obligation to release them and it is pretty recent for Presidents to do so. Also he has released his tax returns:
As for the accusers, to my knowledge none of them has hold up in court and I haven't seen much evidence of sexual assault. Unlike you I don't take women at their word. I'm not saying they are lying, I'm saying innocent until proven guilty.
As for the call for Death Penalty I haven't heard of it so I can't make a comment on it.
Concerning Russia there's nothing concrete. If they had anything on him and ties to Russia that would mean he somehow cheated in the election they'd release it. Trump's administration has also been one of the hardest ones against Russia concerning Crimea and other issues.
