Charlottesville events marking one year since violent protest

President Trump addressed concerns this morning tweeting that last year's event resulted in "senseless death and division" and condemning all forms of "racism and acts of violence".

President Trump urges peace for all Americans one year after the deadly incidents in Charlottesville.

The First Daughter's tweet comes just one day ahead of a planned Unite the Right 2 rally in Washington DC that was timed to mark the one-year anniversary of Charlottesville.

One year after Susan Bro's daughter was killed when a vehicle plowed into counterprotesters at a rally of white nationalist and other right-wing groups in Charlottesville, Virginia, Bro plans to mark the tragedy by going to the street where it happened.

The president infamously blamed protesters "on many sides" for the conflict instead of specifically criticizing the racist sentiment that spurred the tragedy. Majuto claimed that the police "were not on our side" a year ago when white supremacists confronted counterprotesters.

His apparent refusal to condemn neo-Nazis and violent white nationalist groups elicited strong bipartisan pushback.

Subsequent to the UVA rally, a group of dozens of demonstrators marched off campus through other parts of the city, chanting things like, "Whose streets?"

On Wednesday, Gov. Ralph Northam and the city both declared states of emergency, citing the "potential impacts of events" in Charlottesville during the anniversary weekend.

Auhthorities said two people were arrested, one for trespassing and the other for disorderly conduct. "I have to stand up for myself, I have to stand up for my young guns (employees) and any other black person who can't".

United States waging "economic war" against Turkey
On Friday the currency dropped as much as 18 percent at onepoint, the biggest one-day fall since a 2001 financial crisis inTurkey. The Lira has lost almost a third of its value this year, as relations with the United States have become increasingly strained.

Fantasy fallout: Derrius Guice will miss rookie season due to tore ACL
But there are other running backs, such as Ronnie Brown and Edgerrin James, who were never the same after the injury. The injury ends Guice's season before it started. and puts the Redskins run game right back where it ended.

Devin Nunes accidentally revealed his master plan to everyone
In the recording, you can hear McMorris Rodgers say, "Also, the Senate has to start". The fundraiser, which featured Nunes as the headliner, was closed to the press.

Christopher Malone, a political-science professor and dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Molloy College, said Trump's racially charged outbursts are part of a calculated effort to appeal to whites, especially those with a sense of cultural grievance, and is best expressed through his campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again".

Even after a year, Trump has still not specified whom he considered to be among the "very fine people" who joined the white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

With many commenters noting her father defended "both sides" at the time, Ivanka got an earful for saying too little, too late.

"Our main message is that we want people to see Kessler and his allies for what they really are", Shallal said.

Fighting broke out between attendees and counterprotesters that day.

Trump has retweeted white nationalist material, said Mexicans crossing the United States border are rapists and drug dealers, once referred to a Hispanic Miss Universe as "Miss Housekeeping" and employed Steve Bannon, a central figure of the new "alt-right" in America, as his campaign chief and top strategist for a time.

While some businesses closed for the weekend, many merchants remained open in a show of solidarity. Crowds of white supremacists and counterprotesters clashed before a auto plowed into a crowd, killing 32-year-old counterprotester Heather Heyer.

Carlson said police didn't intervene to help her or her friends that night past year. "They weren't there to protect us", she recalled. An extensive review identified "gaps" in planning and communication among agencies, culminating in this year's plan, Charlottesville Police Chief RaShall Brackney said.
