Most Americans think Trump is ripping the country apart. His Charlottesville response shows how.

There’s one number from Fox News’s new national poll that, justifiably, has dominated people’s attention. Asked if President Trump is drawing Americans together or tearing the country apart, more than half — 56 percent — choose the latter option. …

This wasn’t what was supposed to happen, to hear Trump tell it on the campaign trail last year and in his public comments as recently as this month. He would reverse the trend of Americans thinking we were on the wrong path and he would get Americans to unite together.

So what happened? CONT.
