Authorities in Charlottesville, Virginia, were investigating a day after a rally of neo-Nazis, white nationalists, and Ku Klux Klan members erupted into deadly violence, including a auto that rammed into a march of counter-protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman. Saturday's clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters have grown so violent the governor has declared a state of emergency and police have ordered people to disperse. The president did not single out any group, instead blaming "many sides" for the violence.

A friend from childhood, Felicia Correa, who launched a crowdfunding page and said she was speaking for Ms Heyer's mother, who was not ready to speak in public, said: "She died doing what was right". He did not answer questions from reporters about whether he rejected the support of white nationalists or whether he believed the auto crash was an example of domestic terrorism. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., tweeted: "Mr. President - we must call evil by its name". He then asked Mr. Bossert: "Are you at least willing to concede that the president was not clear enough in condemning white supremacy?" Added Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.: "Nothing patriotic about #Nazis, the #KKK or #WhiteSupremacists It's the direct opposite of what #America seeks to be". "Everyone in leadership must speak out".

He had been responding to President Trump saying: "We ALL must be united and condemn all that hate stands for".

Dozens of protesters rallied in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday night denouncing the violence in Charlottesville that has so far left three dead and many others injured. "I think he would have needed to have been much harsher". "It meets the definition of terrorism".

Homeland security adviser Tom Bossert tells CNN's "State of the Union" that the media was trying to "press on the words he didn't say".

Bossert himself is specifically condemned the racist groups.

"There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis", she wrote Sunday.

They converged on the university town of Charlottesville to protest the removal of a Robert E Lee statue, who headed the Confederate Army in the American Civil War. "There was violence between protesters and counter protesters today". A 32-year-old women was killed after a vehicle was driven at speed into a group of anti-fascist protesters and two policemen died in a helicopter crash while taking part in efforts to restore peace to the area. The driver was later taken into custody.

In May, a torch-wielding group that included prominent white nationalist Richard Spencer gathered around the statue for a nighttime protest, and in July, about 50 members of a North Carolina-based KKK group traveled there for a rally, where they were met by hundreds of counter-protesters. He didn't attack us. "That is exactly what we saw on display this weekend", Signer said on CNN's "State of the Nation". Nothing specific against us.

Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer, a Democrat, says that he blames Trump for inflaming racial prejudices with his campaign a year ago. Sen.

"I'm not going to make any bones about it".
