Conservative commentator Ann Coulter on Tuesday praised President Donald Trump's strong defense of his Saturday comments on the Charlottesville violence at a heated news conference, saying on Twitter that "we got our leader back."

In her post, Coulter compared Trump to the Old Testament military leader, judge and prophet Gideon — and it also included video from the fiery session at Trump Tower in Manhattan:

Coulter followed with other tweets opining on some of Trump's comments:

Trump immediately clashed with reporters in taking questions Tuesday after announcing the signing of an executive order on infrastructure, saying "there is blame on both sides" in Saturday's violence.

"You look at both sides," Trump said. "I think there is blame to project on both sides.

"I have no doubt about it. You don't have doubt about it, either," he said. "If you reported it accurately, you would say that."

The melee killed a Charlottesville woman and injured 19 others after a car rammed a crowd in downtown Charlottesville after police called off a rally to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a nearby park.

The alleged driver of the car, James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Maumee, Ohio, faces second-degree murder charges and other offenses. He is being held in jail without bond.

Two Virginia State Police troopers died in a helicopter crash relating to the violence.
