American #Secretary of State #Rex Tillerson on Sunday distanced himself from the controversy surrounding President #Donald Trump's reaction to the violence that took place in Charlottesville.

Tillerson, on Fox News Sunday, said, "We express America's values from the State Department". The Secretary of State responded that he does not believe anyone doubts American values, the commitment of the U.S. government to advancing and defending those values.

When Wallace asked if Tillerson if he was separating himself from Trump's comments, the former ExxonMobil chief executive didn't say no.

"The President speaks for himself", Tillerson said.

The central intelligence agency and the Jammu and Kashmir CID have been alerted about Jaish planning another attack in state. Rising Kashmir hs learnt that the body of the militant is yet to be retrieved as intense exchange of fire is going on.

Trump initially blamed the violence on "many sides", but amid mounting criticism, he called out white supremacists and hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan specifically a couple of days later.

In the past, Tillerson has come under fire for saying, as he did in May, that U.S. foreign policy should sometimes separate values such as freedom, human dignity and "the way people are treated" from policies it pursues around the world.

Wallace wanted to know if Trump was making it harder for Tillerson to tout American values, when foreign leaders were questioning the president's own values.

In response, the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination took the unusual step to call out the USA for its "failure at the highest political level to unequivocally reject racist violent events". Rogers, an expert on former Nicaragua dictator Daniel Ortega, stated that he sees similarities between the United States leader and Latin American presidents who stay in power for extended periods.

"It shows a lack of understanding of the President's broader policy when it comes to protecting Americans at home and overseas from all acts of terrorism", Tillerson said.

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Mr Tillerson was asked to comment on Mr Trump's seesawing response to violence at a white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Virginia, this month and the criticism that he had morally equated neo-Nazis with the individuals protesting against them.

"It shows (Gorka's) lack of understanding of the president's broader policy when it comes to protecting Americans at home and overseas from all acts of terrorism", Tillerson said. "So we condemn racism and bigotry in all its forms".

The Administration "must do better in consistently and unequivocally condemning these groups", Cohn, who is Jewish, said.
