Charlottesville: Trump condemns hatred and bigotry 'on many sides'

U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Dallas, condemned the actions on Twitter: "The racist white supremacist actions in Charlottesville are completely horrendous", he said. "It's been going on for a long time in our country, not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, it's been going on for a long, long time", Trump said at a previously scheduled event for veterans.

We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. But after reports of clashes at an alt-right rally in Charlottesville, he instead began his remarks by addressing the violence.

Resident Jason Kessler who organized Saturday's "Unite the Right" rally told CNN "the anti-white hatred coming out of the city" is what's drawing protesters there.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Hundreds of people are facing off in Charlottesville ahead of a white nationalist rally planned in the Virginia city's downtown.

Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida also critiqued Trump for not directly labeling as a terrorist attack Saturday's assault by a auto, in which at least one person was killed and roughly 20 injured.

Many also noted that Trump avoided using the words "white supremacy" or "white nationalism".

Colleen Cook, 26, stood on a curb shouting at the rally attendees to go home. "These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism", Gardner wrote on Twitter.

Democrats also criticized Trump's response. "You're all among the best this nation produces", Trump tweeted. On many sides. Many sides.

Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, added that the president's job is "moral leadership".

McAuliffe further indicated that he spoke with President Donald Trump earlier in the day and encouraged a movement in America "to bring people together". For now, when you see the photo, know that it has not yet been authenticated as related to the protest.

"I'm not going to make any bones about it".

Hundreds of people chanted, threw punches, hurled water bottles and unleashed chemical sprays on each other Saturday morning at white nationalist rally in Charlottesville.

- "We reject the racism and violence of white nationalists like the ones acting out in Charlottesville".

"The views fueling the spectacle in Charlottesville are repugnant". He said in a statement, "Men and women from state and local agencies will be in Charlottesville [on Saturday] to keep the public safe, and their job will be made easier if Virginians, no matter how well-meaning, elect to stay away from the areas where this rally will take place". A motive has not been released by authorities. Counter-protesters massed in opposition. That effectively ended the rally's start, and Emancipation Park remained empty.
