"I urge all people of good will-go home". You are not wanted in this great commonwealth.

Governor Andrew Cuomo of NY made an official statement earlier today, saying that there are not "many sides" to the violence that unfolded in Charlottesville and rebuking Trump for his response.

At least one person has died and 19 were injured after a auto ploughed into anti-fascist protesters opposing a major white nationalist march planned for this weekend.

"In America there is no place for violence of this kind" - wrote in his Twitter the President of the United States Donald trump, who called USA citizens "to unite". Police eventually broke up the violence and declared the rally an unlawful assembly before it officially started.

The president is being widely criticized for his response to the violence in Charlottesville on Saturday and Colorado politicians are no exception. "Let it only serve to unite Americans against this kind of vile bigotry".

David Duke, a former leader of the white supremacist Ku Klux Klan, was in Charlottesville for the rally, according to his Twitter account. Alt-right activists and white supremacists planned to protest the city's decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from the city's Emancipation Park. When you give license to open expressions of bigotry against some groups, you open the door to bigotry against all groups of people. "Now is the time for leaders to be strong in their words & deliberate in their actions", Clinton said, adding "We will not step backward".

A reporter shouted a question to Trump about whether he had spoken out strongly enough against white nationalists but the president made no comment. You will not succeed.

Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said that at least 35 people were injured and treated by city personnel.

"Ours is a nation whose greatness has been forged in the tough work of binding together peoples of different skin color, national origin, religion, and sexual orientation into one great powerful whole", Murphy said.

The seething hatred among the rioters in Charlottesville is frightening and painful to witness.

Matt Korbon, a 22-year-old University of Virginia student, said counter-protesters were marching when "suddenly there was just this tire screeching sound".

At a podium, Trump read a statement rebuking the violence, but without specifically mentioning or faulting the role of white nationalists.

The Justice Department announcement came as calls for federal investigators to probe Saturday's violence began to emerge from both sides of the aisle.

Some protesters who came for the "Unite the Right" rally were armed and dressed in military-like clothing, while others wore shirts with Nazi symbols and quotes from Adolf Hitler.
