  • Woman Troopers Killed After White Supremacist Rally

President Trump's national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster, who also appeared on the program, expressed a similar attitude toward the incident.

Nineteen people are being treated for serious wounds and five are said to be in a critical condition.

"This senseless act of violence rips a hole in our collective hearts", a statement from the Charlottesville city government said.

But, like Trump, Bossert implicated "both sides" for Saturday's violence in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union", while also saying the White House was "absolutely" against white supremacists.

A state of emergency was announced by the local and state governments with police declaring the "Unite the Right" rally an unlawful assembly and ordering the crowds to disperse.

The New York Daily News reported that it was not clear whether Heyer was with the demonstrators counter-protesting.

Saturday's chaos claimed the lives of two law enforcement officers, when a Virginia State Police helicopter crashed outside the city.

"I didn't hear the words 'white supremacy, ' and I think it's important to call it for what it is", he said.

Four people have been arrested, including James Fields, a 20-year-old white man from OH who is being held in jail on suspicion of crashing the vehicle.

The University of Virginia Health System said 20 people were hospitalised after the vehicle ploughed into the group of people protesting near a popular pedestrian mall in the college town.

President Donald Trump said hate and division have no place in America.

The White House has since clarified in a statement that his condemnation included white supremacists. He says "twice I said to him we have to stop this hateful speech, this rhetoric". At his January inauguration, black-clad anti-Trump protesters in Washington smashed windows, torched cars and clashed with police, leading to more than 200 arrests.

Christians on all sides of the political spectrum have vented their shock, horror and fury after white supremacists led marches in Virginia that led to one person being killed.

The statue is one of many Confederate symbols hated by anti-racism advocates but embraced by many white Southerners, who see them as part of their heritage, as well as by white nationalists, who believe in a separate nation for white people.
