US: Emergency declared as clashes erupt at hate rally

Trump, on a working vacation at his New Jersey golf club, had meant to speak briefly at a ceremony marking the signing of bipartisan legislation to aid veterans, but he quickly found that those plans were overtaken by the escalating violence in the Virginia college town.

Buzzfeed is now reporting that a vehicle drove into a group of anti-racist protesters, injuring at least 19 people. "Look at the intentional courting, both on the one hand all of these white supremacist, white nationalist groups like that, anti-Semitic groups, and then look on the other hand the repeated failure to step up and condemn, denounce, silence, put to bed, all of those different efforts just like we saw yesterday", he said Sunday morning on CNN.

President Trump also said that people should unite, bearing in mind that they "are all Americans first".

The president kept quiet as Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) declared a state of emergency - and as Trump's own wife responded, writing in a tweet that "no good comes from violence".

Mr. Trump, in his remarks, said bigotry and hatred has gone on for a long time.

"We're closely following the bad events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia", Mr. Trump said. "It's been going on for a long, long time". TV news footage showed numerous white nationalists were armed with guns, shields and even pepper spray.

White nationalists were protesting the city's decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, when they clashed with counter-protesters who also showed up.

Trump called for "a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives".

Charlottesville Democratic mayor Michael Signer said Sunday that President Donald Trump had emboldened organized racists who caused the racially charged violence in his city over the weekend.

- "The violence, chaos, and apparent loss of life in Charlottesville is not the fault of "many sides". There are not "many sides" here, just right and wrong". 'I think he would have needed to have been much harsher as it related to the white supremacists'.

Republican member Cory Gardner meanwhile tweeted that the President Trump should "call evil by its name".

Pressed again on the President's position towards the white supremacists, Bossert offered a condemnation of hate groups.

He said the event will provide "a way for [fans] to see the action first-hand" in a way that's never been done before. Chris Hughes and James Cooke-Priest, the minds behind the Top Gear live tour, are the organizers for the live show.

But some of the white nationalists cited Trump's victory as validation for their beliefs, and Trump's critics pointed to the president's racially tinged rhetoric as exploiting the nation's festering racial tension. "Everyone in leadership must speak out".

The neo-Nazis had gathered at Charlottesville's Emancipation Park (formerly Lee Park) because the city voted to remove a Confederate statue there; it still remains pending a judge's ruling.

He had allegedly driven a auto, at speed, towards a crowd of people who were on the streets protesting against the presence of the white nationalists.

It is unclear if the driver has been taken into custody.

Former Klan Imperial Wizard David Duke attended the rally as well as other prominent white nationalist leaders. "The attacks we are witnessing in Charlottesville are completely unacceptable and must not be allowed to continue", Feinstein said. "We must all come together as Americans - and be one country UNITED".
