Sen. McConnell: White supremacist, KKK, and neo-nazi groups not wanted in Ky

He says all Americans must speak out against such views. The survey underscores the political problems posed by clashes with Trump, showing sentiment is largely behind the president.

No member of President Trump's cabinet has offered any public criticism of the President over his embrace of white supremacists. He says, "less than kind behavior was met by people taking the high road".

USA Today notes McConnell failed to mention President Trump by name in his apparent condemnation of the president's comments on Charlottesville. John McCain, Sen. Lindsey Graham and House Speaker Paul Ryan have criticized Trump's belated and weak reaction to the Charlottesville violence and his failure to put blame squarely on the white nationalists.

The president also led McConnell in who voters believed was more trustworthy, with 55 percent saying Trump and 14 percent choosing McConnell.

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao stood shoulder-to-shoulder Tuesday with President Donald Trump, the same man who railed against her husband, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, last week and demanded that the lawmaker "get back to work" on health care.

McConnell released a statement Wednesday morning ahead of a rally in Lexington similar to the one that turned violent in Charlottesville over the weekend. "Their messages of hate and bigotry are not welcome in Kentucky and should not be welcome anywhere in America", McConnell said in his statement.

Heimbach has not said when a protest in Lexington might take place. But he also said: "You also had people that were very fine people, on both sides".
