Heather Heyer, a 32-year old Virginia paralegal, died Saturday after being struck by a auto in an apparently willful act of terroristic violence while she was protesting against a white-nationalist rally in Charlottesville.

He added: "It's been going on for a long, long time in our country".

The Democratic governor said law enforcement authorities had done "great work" in "a very delicate situation", in comments reported by The New York Times.

President Trump himself remained out of sight and silent, aside for a retweet about two Virginia state policemen killed in a helicopter crash while monitoring the Charlottesville protests.

Heather Heyer, a paralegal with the Miller Law Group, was killed when a neo-Nazi drove his vehicle through a crowd of counter-protesters voicing their opposition to the racist rally. When asked for clarification, a White House official confirmed to CNN that, no, we hadn't misheard POTUS: Trump was "condemning hatred, bigotry and violence from all sources and all sides", the spokesperson said.

"I condemn white supremacists and racists and white Nazi groups and all the other groups that espouse this kind of hatred", Bossert said.

White supremacists and other groups gathered in Charlottesville to protest that city's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, enshrined in bronze on horseback in the city's Emancipation Park.

The far-right demonstrators, who included neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan (KKK) members, clashed with counter-protesters.

Heyer was among the counter-protesters when she was killed; the city said she died "exercising her peaceful first-amendment right to speech".

McAuliffe said the police estimated 80 percent of those in attendance - both the white supremacy and counter protesters groups - were likely armed "yet not a shot was sacked".

"When such actions arise from racial bigotry and hatred, they betray our core values and can not be tolerated", the attorney general said.

On the Democrat side, Senate minority leader Charles Schumer said: "Of course we condemn ALL that hate stands for. But what this is, what you see here, is you see someone who is a criminal, who is committing a criminal act against fellow Americans".

Counter-protesters massed in opposition. 'I'm sure there were good people in the group that had various opinions on the removal or maintenance of the statue, but. what they found when they showed up were groups from outside that showed up on both sides looking for trouble, dressed in riot gear, prepared for violence'.

'Well, I will tell you, one death is too many, ' Bossert answered.
