Callers Go Head To Head Over Trump And Charlottesville Riots

One woman was killed when a grey Dodge Challenger ploughed into counter-protesters as violent clashes with groups including Nazis and fascists broke out in Virginia.

Franks joined Jeanine Pirro on Fox News on Saturday evening after President Trump made a statement calling the white supremacist rallies "a display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides".

The demonstrators defied the authorities' attempt to restore order, throwing bottles at one another and using pepper spray in the city's downtown area.

The white nationalist group initially gathered in Charlottesville to protest plans to remove a statue of Confederate Civil War General Robert E. Lee while other groups arrived for a counter-protest.

Charlottesville mayor Michael Signer blamed Mr Trump for inflaming racial prejudice during his presidential campaign last year.

The man driving the vehicle is in custody, Thomas said, and police were treating the incident as a criminal homicide investigation.

On Facebook, the Virginia State Police confirmed two people were killed in the crash.

Trump said: "We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for". He has been venerated as a heroic figure in the South.

So far three people have died in the riots. Both political officials and regular citizens criticized Trump for not directly and vehemently condemning the actions of the white nationalist groups whose presence caused the violence. A banner spray pained with "Black Lives Matter" was hung from Parkman Bandstand, a famous landmark in the city.

Although a few cars were held up by the march, police said the rally was peaceful and there were no arrests. "Sometimes, the left maybe throws around this racism title so much that they diminish when something really truly racist and evil happens like it did today".
