Ivanka Trump Condemns White Supremacy, Neo-Nazism on Charlottesville Anniversary

Businesses say they'll refuse service to Unite the Right attendees in DC

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".

One year after Susan Bro's daughter was killed when a auto 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.

With Charlottesville police widely criticized for their handling of last year's rally, D.C. authorities are vowing to prevent violence.

He adds that, "We must come together as a nation".

Rep. Eljah Cummings on Pres. Trump condemning "all types of racism and acts of violence": "He has not gone far enough". Peace to ALL Americans!

Jason Kessler, one of the organizers of last year's rally is planning another "white civil rights" rally on Sunday.

The 2017 Charlottesville rally, which drew white supremacists and neo-Nazis, was originally meant to protest the planned removal of a statue depicting Confederate General Robert E. Lee that still stands.

Hundreds of students and protesters descended on Charlottesville's downtown mall and the University of Virginia on Saturday.

His family announced in late July that he had opted not to seek further treatment and would receive palliative care at home. The 12-time US Tour victor has only bettered Thursday's driving display once, during the 2006 Barracuda Championship.

The state of emergency will stay in place in Charlottesville through the weekend so people can go and honor Heyer's life along with the two state troopers who also died previous year. Government and police officials in Washington have expressed confidence the city can manage the events without violence; the mayor and police chief have promised a massive security mobilization to keep protesters and counter-protesters apart.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said Thursday she signed an order to escalate emergency operations in preparation of the rally that is scheduled to take place Sunday at Lafayette Square, a park across the street from the White House.

The president of the University of Virginia has offered an apology to the students and community members who faced off a year ago against white supremacists during a march through campus.

On the eve of last year's rally, torch-toting white supremacists marched through the University of Virginia's campus, shouting racist and anti-Semitic slogans. Crowds of white supremacists and counterprotesters clashed before a auto plowed into a crowd, killing 32-year-old counterprotester Heather Heyer.

As reported a year ago, following Heyer's death, "about 1,000 people attended a memorial service for Heyer in Charlottesville".

Carlson said police didn't intervene to help her or her friends that night past year. And two Virginia state troopers died when their surveillance helicopter crashed near the protests.

Only took him a year.

. "Every police action that you will see on Sunday will be done with the ultimate goal of ensuring the safety of everyone that attends", he said. "I think there's blame on both sides", Trump said.

An investigation by a former United States attorney found a lack of planning, poor communication and a passive response by law enforcement added to last year's chaos.
