"There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis", Trump tweeted.

When asked what the president meant by "on many sides", a White House spokesperson responded: "The President was condemning hatred, bigotry and violence from all sources and all sides".

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) didn't call on the president specifically, but as someone who lived through World War II and lost a brother to that fight for freedom, said, "we should call evil by its name".

Buzzfeed is now reporting that a auto drove into a group of anti-racist protesters, injuring at least 19 people.

Trump condemned "this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides". "It's been going on for a long, long time".

Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer (D.) continued to criticize Donald Trump on CNN after saying violence in his city laid "right at the doorstep of the White House", saying Sunday there was no leadership coming from the president.

The White House has been scrambling to elaborate on President Donald Trump's response to deadly, race-fueled clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The president's homeland security adviser, Tom Bossert, defended the president's initial statement by suggesting that some of the counter-protesters were violent, too.

"To be honest, this is not about Donald Trump", Signer said, adding that the violence from white supremacists demonstrated that the country's core democratic principles were eroding, but people had an opportunity to change for the better.

Alt-right leader Richard Spencer and former Ku Klux Klan member David Duke attended the demonstrations. "The attacks we are witnessing in Charlottesville are completely unacceptable and must not be allowed to continue", Feinstein said. "There is no place here for you". Nothing specific against us.

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

Disturbances began Friday night during a march through the University of Virginia. "Lets come together as one!"

"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". Trump tweeted condolences about the woman killed the protests Saturday evening, more than five hours after the crash.
