here is route 55 in millville. both directions though in terms of traffic look great. but the visibility is still poor as you can see. and new jersey roads, he seeing some fog. and at least roads are clear. 42, new jersey turnpike and 295 all clear. i think there is blame on both sides. and i have no doubt about it, and you don't have any doubt about it either. >> president trump is reverting back to his original statement about the violence in charlottesville saying both sides are to blame. and yesterday's surprise remarks are renewing criticism of how he's handled the deadly clashes. >> in an exchange with reporters yesterday, president trump said not everyone involved in the violence is being held accountable by the public. the president said the group that was originally permitted to protest just wanted to keep a statue of robert e. lee in its place. the president said troublemakers were among the anti-hate protesters. and he defended his position.
>> you had a group on one side that was bad and you madyou hadp on the other side that was also very violence. nobody wants to say that, but i'll say it. you had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit and they were very, very violent. >> those comments were apparently not planned. a senior white house official tells nbc news the president was not supposed to take any questions, but he simply went, quote, rogue. house speaker paul ryan is the first republican leader to comment on the remarks tweeting we must be clear, white supremacy is repulsive and counter to all the country stands for. there can be no moral ambiguity. david duke praised the president, he thanked him for what he called honesty and courage. he also called the "black lives matter" and antifa movement leftist terrorists. last night in bucks county, local religious and civic leaders spoke to the crowd
gathered at the garden of reflection memorial. >> they called on the community and the nation to move forward in the spirit of diversity, inclusion and peace. >> oir valur values are far mor resolute and far more american at their very core than any of the values that we are he re he supposed by the hate-filled groups. >> and they also paid respects to heather heyer, the woman run down. today the charlottesville community will mourn heyer. her family wants them to wear purple. heyer's father says he forgives the man who ran down his daughter and encouraged others to stop hating. >> in the wake of the rally, there is a new push to remove confederate monuments across the country. the city of baltimore removed four. city council there cited events in charlottesville when it adopted a resolution calling for
the immediate destwruks of confederate monuments monday night. the city's mayor says she contacted the maryland historical trust for permission and identified confederate cemeteries where they will send some of the statues. in birmingham, alabama, a large wooden wall was put up around a confederate monument in a downtown area. the city was already making plans to have the monument removed, however a new state law prohibits the removal or alteration of monuments more than 40 years old. if the state's attorney general finds the city has violated that law, it could be fined $25,000. and this morning there is a growing push to move a statue here in philadelphia. >> matt delucia is live in center city with the version city swirling around the statue of frank rizzo. >> reporter: and that statue is right behind me. some want it removed, others want to stay put. this morning it remains untouched, but last night some folks did put a sign up around
it and threw eggs at the statue. the conversation continues over whether to remove this. one councilwoman wants the conversation to end with the statue taken out. now, this controversy surrounds his tactics while in office. many call him a racist and now councilwoman gim says this is time to start talking about taking it out of the heart of the city. and this is not the first time that there has been a call to remove it. last year activists called for the statue to be taken down, but there are folks on the other side, some who recently signed a petition to keep the statue right where it is arguing that the former mayor is a big part of the city's history. and of course you also got the councilwoman, you will listen to her and also hear from somebody on the other side who wants the statue to stay. take a look. >> it's the history that is part of philadelphia and we shouldn't look away, but it's not one that
belongs in the heart of our city. >> first thing he did, integrate the police force. put a black and white officer in the cars. is that a racist? i don't think so. >> reporter: mayor kenney spokesperson issued this statement, saying we think now is a good time to have that conversation about the statue's future. we need to figure out the proper forum for that conversation in a serious structured way, but now is the right time. and councilwoman gim says the statue should be moved to a museum instead of a very public area. she intends to bring it up when council is back in session next month. matt delucia, nbc 10 news. 6:07. a woman was trapped on the roof of her home for more than an hour while her ex-boyfriend was in a standoff with police in philadelphia's westfield plain section. the he was upset after she handed him a restraining order and he told her if she calme dc
