Cleveland Clinic, American Cancer Society dump Trump's Mar-A-Lago

por Thomas Dworetzky , Contributing Reporter
As fallout from President Trump's soft-on-Nazis response to the Charlottesville white supremacist rally continues, the Cleveland Clinic and the American Cancer Society have announced that they are cancelling their planned events at his Florida club, Mar-A-Lago.

"After careful consideration, Cleveland Clinic has decided that it will not hold a Florida fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago in 2018," a statement from the hospital giant, reported by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, declared, adding that, "we thank the staff of Mar-a-Lago for their service over the years."

The clinic had held fundraisers at the club for almost eight years, according to CNN Money.

This came on the heels the president's remarks about the Charlottesville, Virginia, protests, which turned violent, and deadly, when a car rammed counter-protesters, caused many injuries and the death of a 32-year-old woman, Heather Heyer.

In his statements to reporters Tuesday, Trump claimed that there existed some equivalency between white supremacists and those protesting their rally, emphasizing that there is “blame on both sides."

He further suggested that there are "some very fine people on both sides."

On Friday, Heyer's mother, Susan Bro said on ABC's "Good Morning America," "I'm not talking to the president now," adding, "I'm sorry. After what he said about my child, and it's not that I saw somebody else's tweets about him. I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters like Ms. [Heather] Heyer with the KKK and the white supremacists."

"You can’t wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying, ‘I’m sorry.’ I’m not forgiving for that," she went on.

At issue for alt-right protesters are monuments honoring members of the failed Confederate rebellion, such as Robert E. Lee, who led armies against the U.S. in the support of slavery during the American Civil War.

The Cleveland Clinic's decision also followed CEO Toby Cosgrove's move, along with other top U.S. executives on Wednesday, to close down the business advisory council reporting to Trump, over his Charlottesville comments.

The clinic's decision was followed shortly thereafter by a similar announcement by the American Cancer Society, which had run yearly events at the venue for almost a decade, according to CNN Money.
