Gov. Terry McAuliffe Refuses to Denounce Antifa Violence in Charlottesville

One person has died and 34 more were injured after a vehicle plowed through a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Kessler, a local blogger and activist, said in an interview Saturday evening that whoever drove a auto into a group of counter-protesters "did the wrong thing".

A auto rammed into a crowd of protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman, and a state police helicopter crashed into the woods, leaving two troopers onboard dead.

Although a few cars were held up by the march, police say the demonstration is peaceful and there have been no arrests.

Ivanka Trump tweeted on Sunday about the recent violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia by alt-right protesters stating that "There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis".

"He has been charged with second degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and failing to stop at an accident that resulted in a death", Col Martin Kumer, the superintendent of Albermarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail told The Guardian.

Rival TripAdvisor also slumped after its latest quarterly report showed that online and transaction revenue growth fell sharply. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 0.15 percent, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq composite index declining 0.21 percent.

"The violence, chaos, and apparent loss of life in Charlottesville is not the fault of 'many sides.' It is racists and white supremacists", Mark Herring tweeted. "You're talking about people who are saying that hate's not okay, kindness matters, and then they get killed for it", Detwiler said.

Shortly after the incident, a Virginia State Police helicopter above the rally crashed outside Charlottesville, killing the pilot and a trooper.

Addressing reporters, Trump refused to name white supremacists or any specific group, blaming the violence "on many sides". In response, a man from OH plowed down anti-white-supremacist protesters with his auto. He says he's also encouraging people to go home.

A 32-year-old woman was among those killed when a auto ploughed into a crowd, according to Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas, and injuries ranged from life-threatening to minor.

Back in February, the City Council voted to remove the statue of Lee, who was leading southern forces against the Union Army in the American Civil War.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have called for peace. "We need to work together".
