Ivanka Trump, administration mark anniversary of Charlottesville riot

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.

Although city officials denied Kessler's application for a protest permit in Charlottesville, his application for a permit in D.C. was approved for up to 300 people; on the other hand, counter-protest groups were approved for up to 1,500 people. While he gathered some support from his base, who believed that Antifa helped ignite the combustible atmosphere, Trump was widely condemned even by members of his own party, who pointed to the death of Heather Heyer, who was killed when a Unite the Right demonstrator plowed his vehicle into a crowd of counter-protesters. Heyer's death. A white nationalist allegedly murdered an anti-Nazi protester.

Ivanka Trump encouraged her followers to "strengthen our communities" and help other "achieve his or her full potential".

In a tweet over the weekend, Trump said he condemned "all types of racism and acts of violence".

"We must come together as a nation", he said. "Peace to ALL Americans!" the president tweeted.

Washington moved on. GOP leaders who harshly criticized the president at the time still largely back his agenda, well aware that polling shows there was no sustained damage to Trump's popularity among the party's voters after Charlottesville. By comparison, more than 8 in 10 Republicans said the president's policies either had no effect on race relations or encouraged unity. "Not this particular White House", she said.

Fields was charged with 29 hate crimes. "I don't know exactly what will happen", he said "but it will not be good".

Police were out in force as early as Saturday night while members of the Washington chapter of Black Lives Matter also strolled through the park, as if on patrol. Racist protests known as "flash demos" held during the a year ago which were better attended than Sunday's were organized on the dark web, thus avoiding counter-protesters and police restrictions.
