Former White House aide Marc Short on Sunday acknowledged the White House handled its response to last year's violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. poorly.

"The White House didnít handle it as well as it could have from a [public relations] perspective," Short said on ABC's "This Week."

Short, who left his post as White House legislative affairs director last month, said that President Trump mixed up his messaging, but refuted assertions that the president has never called out white supremacists by name.
================================================== =====================
Trump is so conflicted over his mission from Putin that he has trouble with his messaging regarding hate groups attacking each other. Which one to pick, which one to slam? 'There were guilty people on both side,' I believe he said. Definitely conflicted, trying to recall Putin's list of instructions on destroying America.
