Trump condemns 'many sides' in Charlottesville violence; Prominent Republicans blame white supremacists

13 Août, 2017, 06:48 | Author: Claudine Rigal

One person was killed on Saturday when a auto slammed into a crowd in Virginia after clashes at a gathering of white nationalists who oppose plans to remove the statue of a Confederate general from a public park, officials said. Police said Lt. H. Jay Cullen of Midlothian and Trooper-pilot Berke M.M. Bates of Quinton were killed in the crash.

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. One person died and at least 26 others were sent to the hospital after a vehicle plowed into a group of peaceful anti-racist counterprotesters amid days of race-fueled marches and violent clashes. The driver was subsequently arrested, and the incident is now being treated as a "criminal homicide".

State police tweeted that some in the crowd were using pepper spray. But Donald Trump had little to say-or tweet-about it.

When asked what the president meant by "on many sides", a White House spokesman responded: "The President was condemning hatred, bigotry and violence from all sources and all sides". It is unclear if the events are related.

McAuliffe had earlier declared a state of emergency on Saturday morning "to aid state response to violence" at the Charlottesville rally.

"The hate and the division must stop, and must stop right now". There is no place for this kind of violence in America.

Anti-racism protesters waved flags from the Black Lives Matter movement, chanting slogans like "We say no to racist fear" and "No Nazis, no KKK, no fascist United States of America".

"From what I saw, it looked extremely deliberate", Will Mafei, 23, of Charlottesville said.

Virginia's governor has declared a state of emergency involving violent clashes between hundreds of protestors in Charlottesville, Va.

President Donald Trump, speaking midafternoon from New Jersey, condemned "the egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" in Charlottesville.

Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler had called for what he termed a "pro-white" rally to protest the city of Charlottesville's decision to remove the confederate statue from a downtown park.

The father of Trump's press secretary, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, posted that white supremacy is the "worst kind of racism-it's EVIL and perversion of God's truth to ever think our Creator values some above others". He just said the nation should come together.

Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer said he was disgusted that the white nationalists had come to his town and blamed Trump for inflaming racial prejudices.

For many Americans, they are outdated symbols of racism and slavery, and have been mobilizing to have them taken down from public places.

Trump's reference to "V.A." was not to Virginia, but rather to the Veterans Administration: the president's 3 pm presser had originally been planned as a signing of the Veterans Affairs Choice and Quality Employment Act of 2017, which provides funding to extend a program that allows veterans to seek care at private medical facilities instead of just at the V.A.
