Phoenix.-  Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer came to the defense of President Donald Trump and his remarks on Charlottesville saying he said "nothing wrong." On Tuesday night, she appeared on Don Lemon's show against commentator Ana Navarro. Lemon asked her if she was ashamed of the president's comments that the violence was the fault of both sides. "No, absolutely not," she said. "I was not ashamed. 

He took the bull by the horn and spoke from his heart. I think this relentless reporting and this relentless attacking of him is not serving our country or issues that we talk about well. I think it's overburdensome I'm feeling that the people of America, of the United States particularly, have about had it."

 When asked specifically about white nationalist organizations like the KKK, Brewer responded, "You know Don, I am old. I am 72 years old. I've lived through a lot of this. I've denounced the Ku Klux Klan. I think they are terrible. I think what happened in Charlottesville is horrible, but the fact of the matter is that there were groups there from the far-left and the far-right. Call it what you want. Call it the KKK -- I'm sure it was them -- they had torches. 

And then on the left, you had Antifa. They were there with clubs, too." You can see the entire exchange below:

Phoenix police chief: City will be prepared for Trump rally

Phoenix.- President Donald Trump plans to rally supporters on Tuesday night at the Phoenix Convention Center and Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams says the city is working hard to ensure a safe event. In a statement Thursday, Williams says Phoenix is well-prepared to handle another presidential visit because high-profile events are common in the city. 

The Phoenix metro area has hosted Super Bowls, music festivals and major professional and collegiate sporting events in recent years. Williams says her department has officers assigned to the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center to constantly monitor and evaluate activities that may impact communities. 

The police chief says she won't discuss specifics regarding security planning, but says there will be maximum staffing during Trump's visit.
