Ivanka Says What Her Dad Couldn’t Manage On Charlottesville, One Year On

Trump took to Twitter Saturday to mark the anniversary of the Charlottesville rally, writing, "The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division".

In what may someday be characterized as one of the defining moments of his presidency, Donald Trump infamously blamed both sides for the violence which resulted in the death of one protester and injuries to dozens of others. This from the president who said that Nigerians will never go back to their huts when they come and see America. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence.

Trump drew strong criticism in the days after the Charlottesville rally past year for equating white supremacists with counter-protesters and saying "both sides" were to blame.

Officials declared states of emergency for both the city of Charlottesville and the state of Virginia to help law enforcement mobilise state and local resources for security reasons.

Two days later, after a firestorm of criticism, the president said: 'Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups'. Police have also prohibited firearms within 1,000 yards of the event, which will apply even to those with license to carry them.

Counterprotester Heather Heyer died and more than a dozen others were injured at last year's event after a white supremacist drove a vehicle into several people. Officers from the United States Park Police and the Washington police department will erect a barrier separating the white nationalists and the thousands of counter-protesters who intend to oppose them.

"These purveyors of hate and bigotry were emboldened to take their message public by a president who has refused to categorically and unequivocally condemn their message and actions in clear terms", he said ahead of the anniversary rally. We must come together as a nation. He ended his tweet by wishing "Peace to ALL Americans!" There are some notable absences - Richard Spencer, one of the co-organisers of last year's Charlottesville rally with Kessler, has chose to skip it.

Last year's protests in Charlottesville on August 11 saw hundreds of neo-Nazi sympathizers, accompanied by rifle-carrying men, chanting white nationalist and anti-Jewish slogans while wielding flaming torches - scenes reminiscent of racist rallies held before the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 60s.

Congressman Tom Garrett, R. -Va., on Saturday said Russian Federation is to blame for some of the hate spewed from last year's rally.

"The President opined that there were good people in both groups, a statement for which he was widely criticized", he said on his website.

A year after a white nationalist rally traumatized Charlottesville, in the USA state of Virginia, with riots and blood, the city is still healing from the shock.
