"I wanted to help him". "Black Lives Matter is just as racist as the Nazis or the KKK or anyone else".

The author of the original email, according to the Times, was Jerome Almon, who operates government conspiracy websites and says Islamic terrorists have infiltrated the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The email's author, Almon, told The Times that he was hoping the email would reach Trump because he doesn't feel the president is "getting the correct advice or proper information".

"We're going to end up in a violent civil war", Almon said.

Mr. Almon's email said that Black Lives Matter, a group that formed to protest the use of force by police against African-Americans, is being directed by terrorists.

The email concluded: "The President should confront the opposition with the facts. his advisers are moving way [too] slow, and are not aggressive enough".

There is no evidence that any of the journalists used the contents of the email in their coverage, the Times said. Dowd forwarded the message to administration allies in Washington.

Donald Trump's personal lawyer on Wednesday forwarded an email equating Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee with America's first president and Revolutionary War hero Gen. George Washington, The New York Times reported.

"We remain resolute in our potential and ability to improve American manufacturing", he said in a statement . For U.S. business leaders, navigating President Donald Trump's controversies is proving to be a thorny task.

It goes on to say that both men "saved America", among other wild claims, and concludes that "you can not be against General Lee and be for General Washington, there is literally no difference between the two men". The email he sent to Dowd reportedly claimed that Gen. Well, one person is President Trump's personal lawyer John Dowd, who was last seen passing love notes to special counsel Robert Mueller.

It was the planned removal of Lee's statue in Charlottesville that prompted a large group of neo-Nazis and white supremacists to organize demonstrations in the Virginia town this weekend. Trump's comments - and his reluctance to back off from those statements - have led to a political backlash.

Almon, the apparent author of the email Dowd forwarded, is a 52-year-old man who has promoted himself as a hip-hop music executive based out of MI.

"I believe President Trump probably remembers me, and probably recognizes me, and that was the whole thing - I wanted to help him", Almon said.

Almon told the Post in a phone interview that he has previously met Trump, and as a one-time Obama supporter, he has come to support the current president because "he's far more right than he is wrong, and he's done far more on average than his opponents".

Among the similarities of Lee and Washington outlined in the email were slave ownership and rebelling against a ruling government. "Both men's battle tactics are still taught at West Point", the email reads.
