US President Donald Trump has come under fire for his "weak" response to the deadly clashes between white supremacists and counter-protest groups in Charlottesville, Virginia. Trumpgave a statement Saturday pointing to "many sides" as being responsible for the violence; but while he denounced bigotry, he did not condemn white supremacy.
Several Republican lawmakers have either called out Trump or issued statements singling out white nationalists and white supremacists. On ABC, McMaster described the auto attack on counter-protesters as "terrorism". "We must begin to work together to heal our nation".
Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., tweeted: "Mr. President - we must call evil by its name. But what this is, what you see here, is you see someone who is a criminal, who is committing a criminal act against fellow Americans".
On Saturday, white nationalists held the Unite the Right rally to protest the city of Charlottesville's decision to remove the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from Emancipation Park downtown. Unwilling or unable to believe that the president represented the very group of wealthy entrepreneurs and business leaders who search for tax cuts, dividend shares, and larger profits that had endangered the remnants of America's postwar middle class, robust numbers of white men and women, of all class and educational backgrounds, voted for Trump.
Meanwhile, the Daily Stormerpraised Trump for not being specific in his condemnation and interpreted his comments as a rebuke of the violence from counterprotesters.
He added: "These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism". A few hours after violent encounters between the two groups, a vehicle drove into a crowd of people peacefully protesting the rally.
A total of 34 people have been injured in clashes between the right-wing protesters and counter-protesters, including the auto attack. The driver was later taken into custody.
The website had been promoting the Charlottesville demonstration as part of its "Summer of Hate" edition.
"He has to move away from that sort of "Bannon-bart" nonsense", Scaramucci said, apparently combining Bannon's name with Breitbart, the website that Bannon ran before joining Trump's campaign previous year. Scaramucci today said that "for the record, I thought that was off the record".
Virginia police have not yet provided a motive for a man plowing a vehicle into a crowd of people objecting to the white nationalists, but USA attorneys and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have opened a civil rights investigation into the crash, an FBI field office said.
Breitbart has close ties with the alt-right movement, an ideology that can be associated with white nationalism.

North Korea responded saying under no circumstances will it give up its nukes or put them on the negotiating table. Stop testing missiles for an "extended period", Tillerson said, and the USA might deem North Korea ready to talk.

Turnbull added: "If North Korea decides to carry out some of its violent threats, then obviously bad consequences will follow". Trump has said he would not allow Pyongyang to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States.
