Another senior administration official, though, suggested that the president's omission had not been accidental. "Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups", a spokesperson said on Sunday. "Call this white supremacism, this white nationalism evil, and let the country hear it, let the world hear it". The president on Saturday did not answer any questions from reporters, however, after he'd taken questions from reporters extensively in prior days.

Addressing worshipers at the Mount Zion First African Baptist Church, a few blocks from where the clashes took place Saturday, McAuliffe did not mention Trump by name, but he blamed "political rhetoric" for "breeding bigotry".

Meanwhile, the Daily Stormer praised Trump for not being specific in his condemnation and interpreted his comments as a rebuke of the violence from counterprotesters. "We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation and ... true affection for each other". "On many sides", he said from his New Jersey golf club.

The White House has defended Donald Trump's response to the violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, rejecting criticism that the United States president refused to condemn white supremacist groups for an attack on anti-racism protesters. He added, correctly, that these kinds of events have been going on for a long time throughout American history.

Scaramucci is still a supporter of Trump's, saying that the president "can be a tough coach at times" but "this guy's a victor". It has no place in America.

Trump is calling for "a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives". "There are not "many sides" here, just right and wrong".

The white nationalist "Unite the Right" demonstration - organized by right-wing blogger Jason Kessler - was organized in protest of a plan to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Murdoch is the patriarch of 21st Century Fox, one of the world's most powerful media companies, and News Corp, the owner of newspapers like the Wall Street Journal. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., agreed with Gardner. Lindsey Graham of SC, appearing on "Fox News Sunday", said: "I would urge the president to dissuade these groups that he's their friend".

The violence in the Southern college town of Charlottesville on Saturday was widely condemned, with many politicians and activists on both the left and right also criticizing Trump, a Republican, for waiting too long to address it and when he did so, failing to explicitly condemn the white-supremacist marchers who ignited the melee. They clashed with counterprotesters, culminating on Saturday with a man ramming a auto through the counterprotesters. One woman was killed when a driver plowed a sports auto into a crowd of counter-demonstrators.

James Alex Fields Jr., 20, is charged with second-degree murder, malicious wounding and failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death. Three people were arrested and at least eight were injured, authorities said.

Two Virginia State Police officers were killed in connection to the rally.

Two state troopers also died when a Virginia State Police helicopter crashed near the city after monitoring the chaos. The crash is still being investigated.
