President Donald Trump took to Twitter to condemn “all types of racism” on the anniversary of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.
The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans!

States of emergency have been declared by Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam and the City of Charlottesville from Aug. 10-12, given that there will be multiple events held to remember the anniversary.
A Unite the Right 2 protest is scheduled for Sunday in Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C., right by the White House. It was organized by Jason Kessler, who launched the original white supremacist rally last year.
Others that have come out to condemn racism are the Democrats
Today we remember the lives lost following the deadly rally that occurred a year ago in Charlottesville, when a group of white nationalists came to a peaceful Virginia town seeking to use hate and division to incite violence against fair-minded, innocent civilians.

One year ago today, we were witnesses to prejudice, hate and bigotry as we all watched the tragedy of #Charlottesville unfold before us.

We will not forget what happened in #Charlottesville a year ago this weekend, or the victims of that ugly day in our country’s history. Racism, bigotry and hate have no place in this country. We will not compromise on this.
