Current and past state and national leaders have spoken out against the deadly demonstration in varying ways, some of them taking a stronger stance against the elements of racism involved in Saturday's "Unite the Right" rally that brought together neo-Nazis, white nationalists, "alt-right" activists and counterprotesters. Plans to remove a statue of the Confederal General Robert E. Lee from the city, saw white nationalists clash with police and anti-racist protesters.

Mr Obama was among them, tweeting a quote from Nelson Mandela.

Condolence visit: Osinbajo sends delegation to Anambra

"'No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion". There were several hundred counter-protestors marching against the racist rally, when a vehicle drove into them at speed, killing a 32-year-old woman. "People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.' - Nelson Mandela", he wrote in a series of tweets. He's since been charged with second-degree murder. And two more people have been declared dead after a helicopter, that was monitoring the rally, crashed.
