Video: Trump's shifting rhetoric on racism since Charlottesville violence

President Donald Trump has come under strong criticism for not calling out white supremacists when racist violence flared in Charlottesville, Va. on the weekend. In an initial statement Saturday, his rhetoric was seen as soft on racists, to calling out groups like the KKK Monday, and then on Tuesday suggesting that both sides were the triggers of violence.
