White nationalists planning 9 rallies this weekend

Protestors Claim Police Allowed Violence in Charlottesville

Trump's comments on the violence Saturday - he condemned actions "on many sides" - have been roundly criticized for what he didn't say about white supremacists, the alt-right or Nazi sympathizers.

But as the death toll linked to the rally rose to three - one in the auto ramming and two state police officers in a helicopter crash outside Charlottesville - the president's apparent refusal to criticize far-right hate groups sparked sharp criticism, even from members of his Republican Party.

Trump remained out of sight and silent, save for a few retweets.

Two Virginia State Police officers also died when their helicopter, which was dispatched to the area, crashed just outside of Charlottesville.

In the hours after a vehicle plowed into a group of anti-racist counter-protesters on Saturday, Trump addressed the violence in broad strokes, saying that he condemns "in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides".

Trump has spent this week at his tony golf club in New Jersey, attempting to show the American public that he is indeed working and not vacationing. "Evangelical Trump supporters aren't responsible for the character flaws and ethical failures of the president".

"My daughter has been talked to by me and my mom (Karen Sterner), who taught human relations for a long time at Southwest (Minnesota State University)".

A series of White House aides on Sunday looked to explain Trump's statement the day before. Trump's failure to immediately condemn the white supremacists in his first reaction after the Charlottesville violence has brought back memories of his presidential campaign in February 2016 when he at first declined to refuse support from the Ku Klux Klan and David Duke.

There are enough ex-White House staffers to provide a boatload of material. Usually, a statement would be signed by the press secretary or another staffer; not putting a name to one eliminates an individual's responsibility for its truthfulness and often undercuts its significance.

"In New York, if you said you were going to have people carrying torches (into a rally), they'd say, you have a better chance of seeing God", he told the Daily Press.

Peltz reported from NY. "You could have a melee inside of that park where a thousand people were jammed there".

Sessions told ABC News on Monday morning that the auto crash that had killed Heyer "does meet the definition of domestic terrorism".

"To anyone who acted criminally in this weekend's racist violence, you will be held fully accountable". Trump's remarks on Monday followed criticism that his initial statement about the clash of protesters did not condemn racist groups specifically. Two days later, he declared that "racism is evil" as are the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups.

And as I have said many times before, no matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws.

Elected officials have been rushing to use buzzwords like "white supremacists" and "domestic terrorism" in response to President Trump's grossly inadequate response to Charlottesville, but if they mean it, they'll take the extra step in promoting the American dream for all citizens; not just denouncing attacks waged by the angriest our country has to offer. Added Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.: "Nothing patriotic about #Nazis, the #KKK or #WhiteSupremacists It's the direct opposite of what #America seeks to be".

Tensions remained high Sunday as the city and nation grappled with the aftermath of deadly violence between white nationalists defending a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee and opponents protesting white supremacist views. He blamed the counter-protesters and police.

A violent series of events surrounding a white nationalist rally turned deadly when a vehicle plowed into a group of anti-racist marchers. "We planned for a long time for today's incidents". "Her bravery should inspire all to come together". "No condemnation at all".

"We stand in solidarity with those in Charlottesville who found their peaceful voice to stand against rising hatred, bigotry and racism", Dyce said.

Charlottesville resident Jeffrey Stricker said he attended the would-be news conference to protest Kessler and other white nationalists.
