Charlottesville: Trump criticised over response to far-right
US President Donald Trump is facing criticism from both Republicans and Democrats for his response to violence at a Virginia white supremacist rally.
A woman was killed and 19 were injured when a car ploughed into a crowd of counter-protesters in Charlottesville.
Mr Trump condemned violence by “many sides” - but stopped short of explicitly condemning the far-right.
The White House has since clarified in a statement that his condemnation included white supremacists.
“The president said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred. Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, neoNazi and all extremist groups,” a spokesperson said on Sunday.
Later on Sunday, one of the organisers of the march, Jason Kessler, was chased away as he tried to give a press conference.
