VIDEO: Violence breaks out at white nationalist rally in Virginia

But president Trump drew scrutiny for issuing what some viewed as an equivocating statement that there was "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides".

Many protesters "express beliefs that directly contradict our community's values of diversity, inclusion and mutual respect", Teresa Sullivan, president of the University of Virginia, said in another statement released hours before the rally.

Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine called "displays of violence and bigotry" by white nationlists in Charlotte "sickening". In the meantime, I stand ready to provide any and all resources from the federal government to ensure there will be no recurrence of such violence in Virginia or elsewhere. "So sad!" he tweeted.

While calling for restoring law and order, the president has not referred to the violent acts during the demonstration as terrorism. Instead, he called for unity among "all races, creeds and colors". We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we're proud of our country. Police declared the gathering an unlawful assembly and moved in to disperse the crowds.

Emergency crews were responding, according to CBS affiliate WCAV-TV. Similar protests happened in May when New Orleans officials decided to remove confederate statues.

By being equivocal, Trump also failed to follow the same self-proclaimed rules he used to hammer other politicians.

"Mr. President - we must call evil by its name".

"There were just a few cars that counter-protesters were blocking", the man said. Vice-President Mike Pence supported the president's speech.

A state of emergency has been declared in Virginia after protests leave one woman and two state troopers dead.

The day of violence ended in tragedy, with a car plowing through a crowd, killing one and injuring 19.

State police swooped in with tear gas as one counter-protestor who was repeatedly pummeled with sticks and a metal pole was left bleeding profusely.

For example, Sen. Luther Strange of Alabama, who faces a close primary election on Tuesday and has been fending off attacks from his right, stuck close to Trump. President Donald Trump has created a context in which white supremacists feel emboldened in their views and have no shame in admitting them publicly and vocally.

A Subway sandwich shop where a worker was cleared of drugging a Utah police officer's drink says in a new lawsuit that police waited two months to publicly disavow the headline-making allegations.

In a follow-up tweet, James said that the youth deserve better.

Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission tweeted: "I am grieved to the core to think that this is the United States of America that I'm watching on live television right now".

McAuliffe told the "white supremacists" and "Nazis" who attended the rally to "go home". He graduated from the Virginia State Police Academy in August 2004 as a member of the 107th Basic Session. No good comes from violence. But Trump walked away without giving an answer.

Gore said Trump should "give more thought to what it means to have a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan and Nazi movement marching and creating this kind of hatred".

Witnesses are reporting seeing a Virginia State Police helicopter crash near Birdwood Golf Course in Charlottesville. "We are determined to take this country back".

Trump walked out of the room.

Let's also be clear that we can't really end white supremacy. Too often, though, our warnings and protestations are met with tepid responses. Jay has flown us across the commonwealth for more than three and a half years.

The city has become ground zero for white nationalist and other protesters, who faced larger counter-rallies in the past.

Both local hospitals said they had taken precautions to prepare for an influx of patients and had extra staff on call.
