  • David Duke is seen at Saturday's rally in Charlottesville where he said that white nationalists will'fulfill the promises of Donald Trump

People at a rally at the World War II Memorial in D.C. on August 13 to protest the violence that broke out in Charlottesville following a white supremacist rally.

Saturday's car-ramming occurred after a violent rally by neo-Nazis and white supremacists over the removal of a Confederate statue.

UPDATE: In response to criticism of failing to acknowledge white supremacists in Charlottesville attacks, President Trump released a new statement on Monday, stating that, "Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups".

"Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President's Manufacturing Council, he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES", Trump tweeted.

"This isn't politics. This is about who we are as a nation, and I call upon every elected official to join us together, to come up with constructive ways of healing, of reconciliation and just telling these people to stop", the Virginia governor said as the White House spent most of the day in defending Trump. These extremist fringe groups have no place in the American debate.

Above all else, we must remember this truth: No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first. We love our flag. "We are all made by the same almighty god".

Trump also, for the first time, mentioned Heather Heyer by name, as he paid tribute to the woman killed when a auto plowed into a group of anti-racist counter-protesters in Charlottesville. The accused, James Alex Fields, was denied bail at an initial court hearing on Monday. And, you know, the president's apparent refusal to take these racist groups head-on is really raising questions because, as you say, he's not typically one who reserves his opinion.

"You can be sure this Department of Justice in this administration is going to take the most vigorous action to protect the right of people like Heather Heyer, to protest against racism and bigotry", Sessions said on NBC's "Today" show. Trump even criticized his Democratic rival on the campaign trail for refusing to use the term herself.

Franklin Graham also took to Twitter, posting, "It is such a tragedy-life was lost and many people were injured in VA. Violence and hatred aren't the answer".

BENNETT: Well, I think because whether he likes it or not, white supremacist and alt-right groups are part of the president's base of support. Earlier this week, the president let loose on North Korea.

Arsenal vs. Leicester City
But perhaps the answer that baffled Wenger the most was when the German defender said his favourite pet animal was a guinea pig. The £52 million signing became the first Arsenal player to score on his Premier League debut since Thomas Vermaelen in 2009.

Authorities said Heyer, 32, was killed when Fields' auto slammed into a crowd of anti-racism activists, capping a day of bloody street brawls between the two sides.

Four people have been arrested, including James Fields, a 20-year-old white man from OH who is being held in jail on suspicion of crashing the auto. He can start by publicly calling this what it is: white supremacy.

Across the United States, events were planned on Sunday to "stand in solidarity with Charlottesville. honor all those under attack by congregating against hate" a loose coalition of civil society groups said in postings on social media. "Radical leftists are the ones that brought the violence". We'll see if they carry through with that.

A women yelled "Nazis go home!" over and over at Heimbach until police ushered him away. He ignored reporters' shouted questions, including whether he wanted the support of white nationals who have said they backed him or if the auto crash in Virginia were deemed intentional, would it be declared to be terrorism.
