President Trump's job approval rating has fallen over the last week, according to a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday.

Just more than a third of American voters (35%) say Trump hasn't had an impact on white supremacist groups, and six in 10 voters (59%) say he's encouraged them. Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the President is looking at ways that "we can unify and break down some of the division that we think is taking place in our country". He's unhinged. It's embarrassing, and I don't mean for us, the media, because he went after us, but for the country. "I really question his ability ... his fitness to be in office".

Trump reread some of his initial response to the deadly rally, notably omitting the phrase "on many sides", which he used to describe groups inciting violence in Charlottesville.

Trump spent roughly 15 minutes near the top of his remarks going through each of the three public statements he made in response to the violence at the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville that left one counterprotester dead.

He also spent more than 10 minutes at the Phoenix rally rereading his three responses to Charlottesville, arguing that "the words were flawless".

After the Senate's attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare crumbled, Trump has shown no restraint in attacking the fellow Republicans who defected - and even the red states they represent. "After people in the crowd begun throwing rocks and bottles at police, police responded with pepper balls and OC (oleoresin capsicum) spray to disperse the crowd and stop the assaults", Phoenix Police Department spokesman Sergeant Jonathan Howard said. "I got the white supremacists, the neo-Nazi, I got them all. We have KKK. I got 'em all", he said.

Despite saying in his brazen Phoenix rally that he'll not keep criticizing Flake by name, Trump did just that on Twitter, once again repeating his familiar taunts of the lawmaker who has challenged parts of his agenda. And I have no doubt about it, and you don't have any doubt about it either, " Trump said August 15 during a combative news conference with reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower.

"Nobody wants me to talk about your other senator", Trump said, waving his arm.

A person close to Mr. Trump said the president had discussed a pardon for Mr. Arpaio, who was found guilty of criminal contempt of court when he defied a judge's order in a case involving racial profiling.

When speaking at a rally in Phoenix Donald Trump blasted "fake media" and claimed his comments on the Charlottesville protests were misrepresented.

The congressman acknowledged that Trump's belligerent Arizona speech was vastly different in tone from his measured address to the nation Monday night on Afghanistan.
