'Egregious Display of Hatred': Trump Condemns Charlottesville Violence

13 Agosto 2017

Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said the driver has been arrested and police are treating the incident as a criminal homicide investigation. Lets come together as one!

Police initially declared an unlawful assembly at Emancipation Park at 11:35 a.m., just before the scheduled noon start time for the rally.

That's according to officials at the nearby University of Virginia hospital. Several people chase the auto. "It has no place in America", Trump said in a video statement.

Donald Trump has strongly condemned the ongoing violence in Virginia and said that a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives is vital.

It's the latest confrontation in the city since it voted earlier this year to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a downtown park.

The bamboo-wrapped beacons are decidedly nonwhite, having roots in Polynesian and Hawaiian cultures - a fact that white-nationalist marchers might not have meant to highlight.

"Go home. You came here today to hurt people", McAuliffe said.

The situation in Charlottesville, Va. appears to be degenerating as a planned rally by white supremacists has been met with large counterprotests, street fighting, armored police, and a declared state of emergency.

The crash was confirmed in social media posts by the Virginia State Police and the National Transportation Safety Board.

Things got scary in the small college town of Charlottesville, Virginia, last night, when hundreds of torch-bearing white supremacists began marching through the city and onto the campus of the University of Virginia.

Up to 6,000 white nationalists had been expected to attend the "Unite the Right" rally.

Though the president did take to Twitter before a press conference, it was first lady Melania Trump who broke the silence concerning the protests. "No good comes from violence", Mrs Trump said.

After the park was cleared, protesters carrying Confederate flags, Nazi symbols and other anti-Semitic signs marched to McIntire Park, a larger location where city officials had previously tried to move the rally.

Rally supporters and counter-protesters screamed, chanted, threw punches, hurled water bottles and unleashed chemical sprays on each other Saturday morning.

President Trump joined a chorus of figures from across the political spectrum Saturday to speak out on Twitter against the white nationalist rally that took place.

A university spokesman said one person was arrested and several people were injured.
