  • Charlottesville: White supremacist groups clash with anti-far-right protesters, in pictures

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer stated that a auto plough into a group of counter-protestors during a gathering for the far-right wing, killing at least one person. "Shame on you. You pretend you are patriots, but you are anything a patriot". "Somewhere around the globe they are putting their life in danger". And you did hurt people. "It's a wrong thing all in itself and it's something we should reject in the strongest terms".

"We stand united behind the President in condemning the violence in Charlottesville and any message of hate and intolerance", Mr. Sessions said in a statement issued Saturday after President Trump had weighed in.

Rescue workers assist people who were injured when a auto drove through a group of counter protestors at the "Unite the Right" rally Charlottesville, Virginia, U.S., August 12, 2017.

Her identity was not immediately released.

Matt Korbon, a 22-year-old University of Virginia student, said several hundred counter-protesters were marching when "suddenly there was just this tire screeching sound".

"Our state police and law enforcement family at-large are mourning this tragic outcome to an already challenging day", said Colonel W. Steven Flaherty, Virginia State Police Superintendent in a statement.

The New York Daily News reported that the deaths were of Virginia troopers.

Trump, who has a following among white supremacist groups attracted to his nationalist rhetoric, has come under fire for blaming the Charlottesville violence on hatred and bigotry "on many sides".

"It's been going on for a long time in our country", Mr Trump said.

"But to be honest, this is not about Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpColbert questions Trump: What's tougher than "fire and fury"? Our message is plain and simple: Go home", the Democratic governor said. "It has no place in America".

Politicians from both sides of the aisle condemned the violence that turned deadly as white nationalists gathered over the weekend in Charlottesville, Va., to protest the removal of a Confederate monument. "You have made our commonwealth stronger". "You will not succeed". Take your hatred and your bigotry with you because there is no place for it here. Lee Detwiler of L.E.A.R.N. said, "Were trying to have a measured response of love and kindness and getting along and peace".

While Trump failed to publicly decry violent racists on Saturday, other conservative political figures said exactly what the president would not. We can work tomorrow. "I told the president that twice". We have to bring people together. The hate and division must stop, and must stop right now'.
