"It's actually terrorism and whether it's domestic or worldwide terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out", he said. "This is the risky culture that having a Bully in Chief in the White House has created", she said. Clashes broke out between white nationalists toting Confederate and swastika flags, counter-demonstrators, and police, which culminated in a 20-year-old OH man driving a vehicle through a crowd of people, injuring 19 and killing one 32-year-old woman. And two state troopers were killed when their helicopter, which was providing aerial surveillance of protests, crashed.

It is unclear if the driver has been taken into custody. Marco Rubio, wrote: "Nothing patriotic about #Nazis, the #KKK or #WhiteSupremacists It's the direct opposite of what #America seeks to be".

A group of white supremacists shouted racist, xenophobic, and homophobic epithets while rallying Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

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

A total of 34 people have been injured in clashes between the right-wing protesters and counter-protesters, including the vehicle attack. A White House spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for an explanation as to what Trump mean by "many sides".

Prior to the deadly violence at Saturday's rally, former KKK Leader David Duke mentioned his thoughts on how President Trump's agenda had inspired the march. "It has no place in America".

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

On the same program, White House Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert defended Trump's remarks, saying the President's statement did not equivocate the white supremacists with the counterprotesters.

Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler had called for what he termed a "pro-white" rally to protest the city of Charlottesville's decision to remove the confederate statue from a downtown park. Bannon has described Breitbart as "the platform for the alt-right". He didn't attack us.

"GLAAD and countless LGBTQ Americans stand firmly together with other marginalized communities to denounce these disgusting threats and cowardly fear tactics", Ellis told Variety. Nothing specific against us.

He said: "I have a message to all the white supremacists and the Nazis who came into Charlottesville today".

The website had been promoting the Charlottesville demonstration as part of its "Summer of Hate" edition.

On Friday night they marched through the University of Virginia campus holding torches in a scene reminiscent of Ku Klux Klan gatherings that haunted America's civil rights movement.

The White House was silent for hours except for a tweet from first lady Melania Trump: "Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts".

"He ran this campaign on white supremacy and xenophobic nationalism so of course these people will be running through the streets hitting protesters over the head with bats and ramming cars into them because they have been emboldened by this president".
