Ivanka Trump, administration mark anniversary of Charlottesville riot

Trump stands by his Charlottesville comments

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".

Last year's rally was marked by violence and tragedy when a white nationalist drove his auto into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one and injuring several others.

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

He concluded, "So when you see the President here talk about he is condemning 'all types of racism, ' remember his record over his presidency and the campaign and even before that".

It blew past the previous record set by last December's Thomas Fire near Santa Barbara, exceeding it now by about 14,000 acres. This comes as the River Fire of the two Mendocino Complex Fires has now reached 100% containment.

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.

Actress and activist Mia Farrow called the president's comments a year ago "ugly".

"These purveyors of hate and bigotry were emboldened to take their message public by a President who has refused to categorically and unequivocally condemn them in clear terms", he wrote on Twitter.

Ms Omarosa, the reality-TV star turned White House aide, put it more bluntly when questioned by reporters at a Virginia airport.
