President Trump blames 'many sides' for Charlottesville unrest

"No room for it in this country".

On Friday night, torch-wielding white nationalists marched through the University of Virginia campus, which was condemned by the university president and other officials.

Both Virginia State Police troopers died Saturday when their police helicopter crashed and burned in Charlottesville, as they patrolled near the site of clashes between white nationalists and counterprotesters.

White nationalists and counter-protesters clashed throughout the day in the city in which the University of Virginia is located.

Videos taken at the scene showed a car speeding down a street and into a crowd of people. "So sad!" he tweeted. While they have deep and noxious roots in our history, they must not be given any quarter nor any license today.

Cullen graduated from the Virginia State Police Academy in 1994 as a member of the 90th Basic Session, and joined the Virginia State Police Aviation Unit in 1999. One person was killed, according to Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer. Instead, he called for unity among "all races, creeds and colors".

"We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we are proud of our country, we are proud of who we are", he said. Police declared the gathering an unlawful assembly and moved in to disperse the crowds. He had just transferred to the Aviation Unit as a Trooper-Pilot in July. Berke was devoted to our entire family as part of our Executive Protective Unit team for the past three years.

Trump's fellow Republican politicians also slammed the President.

Addressing the fatalities that resulted from the day's events, McAuliffe again addressed those who he said "pretend" they are "patriots".

Trump spoke out after a driver plowed into a crowd of people rallying against the white nationalists - killing one and injuring 19 others. "That's why we voted for Donald Trump because he said he's going to take our country back". "Lets come together as one!"

"The events were triggered by individuals who embrace and extol hatred". "We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for", Trump said in a tweet.

Police officers who had been keeping a wary eye on the march jumped in and broke up the fights.

Several Republican senators referred to the violence as a case of "domestic terrorism". Orin Hatch, R-Utah, who invoked the memory of his brother who was killed in World War II. But Trump walked away without giving an answer. NOPD made three arrests (all were monument supporters) for disturbing the peace, and there was nowhere near the level of violence seen in Charlottesville.

- Listen to black people: We've been saying all along that a Charlottesville could easily happen.

No one on the ground was injured. That's what we believed in.

There were several hundred protesters marching in a long line when the car drove into a group of them.

This time, the extreme right brought in big names of the "alt-right" movement - which has been emboldened, critics say, by Trump's ascent to the White House - in a bid to attract more supporters.

After the election, in a November 2016 interview with The New York Times, Trump disavowed the movement and said he did not intend to energize the group.

On Saturday, local and Ohio officials took to Twitter to show their reaction to the "hatred" and "racism" on display. "And no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play or be with their parents and have a good time", he said.
