President Trump's Chief Economic Advisor Gary Cohn speaks out about his boss's handling of violence in Charlottesville. Cohn told the Financial Times that, amid enormous pressure to resign, he felt compelled to voice his distress. These comments make Cohn yet another member of Trump's team to criticize his rhetoric on the violence. David Graham, Staff Writer at The Atlantic, says the question now is how much more Trump can take of the backlash. Graham says he's unsure what Trump hopes to gain by ridiculing members of his own party.
