Trump's Remarks on Charlottesville Violence Are Criticized as Insufficient

President Trump blames 'many sides' for Charlottesville unrest

Charlottesville City Manager Maurice Jones said at the conference that 14 people were treated for injuries, "ranging from life-threatening to mild". And he did not condemn the white nationalist and white supremacist groups that had arrived to protest the city's decision to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee, a hero of the Confederacy - and the president did not call out any of those groups by name. "When such actions arise from racial bigotry and hatred, they betray our core values and can not be tolerated".

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and other political leaders condemned the deadly attack Saturday on counterprotestors at "Unite The Right" white nationalist and neo-Nazi rally in Virginia.

Two people also died when a Virginia State Police helicopter crashed near the violence in Charlottesville, federal officials said. There is no place for you in America.

Trump said "many sides" were involved in the Charlottesville incidents, drawing fire for not specifically denouncing the far right.

The man being held for driving a auto into a crowd of counter-protesters at a white nationalist rally in Virginia is being identified. But there are other things in Trump's statement that are also worth calling out - most notably "not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama".

One person was killed and 19 injured when the vehicle that appears to be a Dodge Challenger crashed into a crowd of protesters leaving a "Unite the Right" rally. But my message is clear: We are stronger than you.

The University of Virginia Health System said it was treating 19 injured people from the crash, five of whom were in critical condition.

Colleen Cook, 26, stood on a curb shouting at the rally attendees to go home.

- "As @POTUS Trump said, "We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation".

You came here today to hurt people.

The violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, between white nationalists and counter-protesters confronted Trump with perhaps the first true domestic crisis of his young administration. They rallied behind his promises to build a wall on the southern border, reduce the number of foreigners allowed into the country and pressure everyone in the country to speak English and say "Merry Christmas".

- February 1: Protesters hurl smoke bombs, break windows and spark a massive bonfire, prompting University of California at Berkeley officials to cancel a talk by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos for safety concerns.

Saturday's scheduled men's soccer exhibition game between Virginia and Wright State at Klöckner Stadium, as well as the Cavaliers' Football Meet the Team and Movie Night event were canceled due to the ongoing public safety concerns in downtown Charlottesville.
