Vehicle ploughs into crowd, kills one, at violent U.S. white nationalist rally

Vehicle ploughs into crowd, kills one, at violent U.S. white nationalist rally

Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner tweeted "Mr. President - we must call evil by its name".

Virginia Senator Mark R Warner said Virginians mourn the life taken in this morning's events and reject this hateful violence in Charlottesville.

He called on "swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives", and said that, "No child should ever be afraid to go outside and play or be with their parents and have a good time".

The previous two days, Trump took more than 50 questions from a small group of reporters. There is no excuse for violence and bigotry.

"Everyone has a right under the First Amendment to express their opinion peaceably, so here's mine: not only as the Mayor of Charlottesville, but as a UVA faculty member and alumnus, I am beyond disgusted by this unsanctioned and despicable display of visual intimidation on a college campus", he said, according to The Hill.

The founder of the Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi and white supremacist website that considers itself a part of the alt-right, celebrated the fact that Trump "outright refused to disavow" the white nationalist rally and movement. "These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism".

In a brief appearance, US President Donald Trump condemned the violence and "hate" in the city.

Unlike President Donald Trump, who refused to pin responsibility of the violent exchanges between white nationalist groups and counter-protesters, Hillary blatantly blamed white supremacy for the spread of hatred in America. Mimi Arbeit, an organizer of the counter-protests, however, rejected Kessler's claim that the rally was about freedom of speech.

After a season marred by a painful elbow injury, Wolfe added bulk in the offseason, beefing up 20 pounds, he said. Wolfe had 51 tackles and 5.5 sacks a year ago and is a huge part of the Broncos run defense and pass rush.

UPDATE 12:45 PM ET: The governor of Virginia has since called a state of emergency over the violence in the city and the National Guard has been called into action.

"We have to respect each other", Trump said.

The fighting broke out in the city's downtown when hundreds of people, some wearing white nationalist symbols and carrying Confederate battle flags, were confronted by a almost equal number of counter-protesters. He didn't attack us.

Earlier, an hour after the commencement of the main march, which has attracted leading white nationalist figures such as David Duke and Richard Spencer, Trump tweeted "We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for". Nothing specific against us. He just said the nation should come together.

"I want to urge my fellow Virginians, who may consider joining either in support or opposition to the planned rally, to make alternative plans", he said in a statement.

Trump was criticized by members of both political parties for not specifying white nationalists in his comments about the violence in Charlottesville.

Some protesters who came for the "Unite the Right" rally were armed and dressed in military-like clothing, while others wore shirts with Nazi symbols and quotes from Adolf Hitler. His chief strategist, Steve Bannon, once declared that his former news site, Breitbart, was "the platform for the alt-right".

Every time Trump refuses to condemn white supremacists, he tacitly endorses them.
