Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said President Donald Trump's comments on the violence at a rally by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia are dividing and not healing the nation, The Hill reported.

"Mr. President, I encourage you to try to bring us together as a nation after this horrific event in Charlottesville," Graham said on Wednesday. "Your words are dividing Americans, not healing them."

Trump had blamed white supremacists and counter-protesters for the violence, The New York Times noted.

"I think there is blame on both sides," Trump said on Tuesday. "You had a group on one side that was bad. You had a group on the other side that was also very violent. Nobody wants to say that. I'll say it right now."

But on Wednesday, Graham maintained: "Many Republicans … will fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world."
