Pres. Trump Sends Single Tweet Condemning Racism On Charlottesville Anniversary

One person died and several others were injured on August 12 a year ago when a auto ploughed into counter protesters who had taken to the streets to oppose a Unite the Right rally of white nationalists.

"The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division", he stated.

"We must come together as a nation", Trump wrote on Twitter from his golf club in New Jersey.

"I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence", Trump added, before declaring, "Peace to ALL Americans!"

Mark Lance, a philosophy professor at Georgetown University and an organizer of some of Sunday's planned the counter-demonstrations, said Kessler's call for "white civil rights" was meant to obscure the beliefs of those that rallied in Charlottesville.

A collective of counter-protest groups will stage a rally earlier in the day before congregating at the park and have vowed to drown out the white nationalists' message. States of emergency were declared Wednesday for the Commonwealth of Virginia and Charlottesville.

The rally attracted counter protesters, and clashes quickly broke out between the two groups. In an interview later Friday on "Anderson Cooper 360", Bro said she thinks it's time to "take the focus off Heather, as Heather would want us to do".

On Sunday, thousands of counter-protesters are slated to attend multiple rallies against white supremacy in Washington, DC.

Donald Trump Thanks Kanye West for His "Support" on ‘Kimmel’
Kanye West took to Twitter to defend his inability at responding to a question comparing Donald Trump and George W. Pride is often a word that people say in a positive connotation, but it's actually one of the seven deadly sins.

Last year, 22-year-old Clara Carlson faced down the group of white supremacists who marched through campus, surrounding her and a group of friends.

Several events are scheduled in Charlottesville to observe what happened previous year and promote racial healing.

"Last year, I was afraid of the Nazis".

The area also includes the street where Heather Heyer was killed when a man attending the rally is accused of plowing into a crowd of people with his auto.

District law states you can't deny service to anyone based on political affiliation, but when it comes to behavior that threatens a protected class, D.C. law does allow businesses to deny services. The day's death toll rose to three when a state police helicopter that had been monitoring the event and assisting with the governor's motorcade crashed, killing two troopers.

An independent investigation of last year's rally violence found the chaos stemmed from a passive response by law enforcement and poor preparation and coordination between state and city police.

There are no official far-right protests planned in town this weekend, but the city's downtown area has been closed to traffic, and the University of Virginia, where hundreds of white supremacists marched with flaming torches previous year, is restricting access to parts of its campus. An extensive review identified "gaps" in planning and communication among agencies, culminating in this year's plan, Charlottesville Police Chief RaShall Brackney said.

When asked by Cooper whether she had seen any change in Trump's views on what happened in Charlottesville, or on race issues in America, Bro said, "I have other things to do than to worry about what he's doing".
