From the Morning Memo:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a brief response to President Donald Trump on Tuesday once again blaming “both sides” for the racially charged violence in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

In a tweet, Cuomo criticized Trump’s assertion at a Trump Tower news conference that some of the people who marched in opposition to taking down a statue honoring Robert E. Lee were good people.

“There are no ‘very fine’ white supremacists, Mr. Trump,” the governor posted to Twitter.

Trump at the news conference once again condemned bigotry and violence in Virginia, but added members of the “alt life” were also to blame for instigating violence in Virginia.

Cuomo has come under fire for the comments made late last week by Dan Loeb, a prolific political donor and supporter of charter schools who wrote on Facebook that Senate Minority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins had been worse for people of color than the Ku Klux Klan.

Loeb has apologized and Cuomo has condemned the remarks. Activist groups are calling on the governor and others to return the money Loeb has donated to their campaigns.
