Trump condemns 'all types of racism' on anniversary in Va.

While white supremacy has gained more publicity following the Charlottesville riots, far-right forces in the country have not been strengthened.

"It's nice that they're here to protect us", said Lara Mitchell, 66, a sales associate at a shop that sells artwork, jewelry, and other items.

The neo-Nazis are planning to protest in front of the White House, while a coalition of progressive groups has organized an "anti-racist" counter-protest nearby.

A year ago in Charlottesville, neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen and other members of hate groups marched through the University of Virginia campus shouting anti-Semitic slogans, then fought with counter-protesters in the city streets.

McAuliffe was governor when white nationalists marched through Charlottesville and clashed with counterprotesters, ultimately killing one of them, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, who was struck by a vehicle driven by a suspected white nationalist.

President Donald Trump was roundly condemned past year for saying there was "blame on both sides" for the violence, condemning the anti-fascists who came "with clubs in their hands".

Those demonstrations descended into violence after the two sides - some on the right armed with firearms, and some on the left with shields and clubs - met, and several people were injured.

The white supremacists were heavily guarded at the rally by police and were outnumbered with thousands of counterprotesters with signs and banners denouncing racism and fascism.

Trump fielded bipartisan backlash after he initially condemned the violence "on many sides" without singling out white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

The President tweeted this morning, "I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence". "Peace to ALL Americans!" the president tweeted.

As Mr Trump sent out that message, though, demonstrators had once again gathered in that college town to mark the occasion - with the voices of the anti-white supremacy crowd reportedly carrying the day.

In addition, two police officers died in a helicopter crash while they were monitoring the protests. "This also from the president who, on time after time after Charlottesville, said, 'There are very fine people on both sides'".

The violence culminated with a man driving a auto into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a woman and injuring 19 people.

"Both of those are both actively being investigated", Brackney said.

Carlson said police didn't intervene to help her or her friends that night previous year.

"A group of white nationalists came to a peaceful Virginia town seeking to use hate and division to incite violence against fair-minded, innocent civilians", Warner tweeted.

As reported past year, following Heyer's death, "about 1,000 people attended a memorial service for Heyer in Charlottesville".
