The white nationalist rally being held in Charlottesville, Virginia has turned deadly. The protest has escalated, as a car has plowed into a group of marchers, killing one and injuring multiple others.
The protestors affected were acting peacefully against the white supremacy march in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Secretary of Public Safety, Brian Moran, said the driver, a man, has been arrested. However, he is still unidentified.
Witnesses say the car plowed into a crowd of people who were protesting a rally, which was held by white nationalists who oppose the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee by the city of Charlottesville. One person has been milked, while numerous others are injured.
President Donald Trump took to his post in order to give his input on the violence. He “condemned hate on many sides” on national television early Saturday.
The president read,
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides. It has been going on for a long time in our country — not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America.”
He failed to mention the white nationalists and the alt-right movement in his ‘speech.’
Take a look at the shocking images from the rally.
