The mother of the young man suspected of ramming his auto through a crowd of protesters during a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, said she thought her son was attending a Trump-related rally on Saturday. Also, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, an anti-white nationalism protester, died when a 20-year-old Ohioan ran a auto through a crowd of demonstrators.

Trump said "many sides" were involved in the Charlottesville incidents, remarks that drew fire for not specifically denouncing white nationalists.

"There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis", she tweeted.

Hundreds of white nationalists converged for Saturday's "Unite the Right" march, called to protest against the removal of a statue of a general who had fought for the pro-slavery Confederacy during the US Civil War.

The president made his comments at a bill signing ceremony at his golf club in New Jersey where he's on a working vacation.

Lieutenant H Jay Cullen and Trooper-pilot Berke MM Bates also died after a Virginia State Police helicopter that had been assisting with policing the rally crashed. "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of bigotry hatred and violence on many sides", he said at an impromptu press conference. "That's why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he's going to take our country back".

The White House was silent for hours about the rioting, except for a solitary tweet from USA first lady Melania Trump who wrote: "Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts". A long, long time'.

Numerous eye witnesses told The Daily Caller News Foundation that the vehicle was driven by a member of the white supremacist movement.

The city of Charlottesville was reeling Sunday, trying to understand how the college town was suddenly engulfed by chaos and violence as a white nationalist rally turned deadly, claiming the lives of three people. Trump's not a supremacist.

De Blasio also went after President Trump for his response to the violent clashes in Virginia.

The organization called on Trump to find "moral clarity" and condemn the violence and racially motivated hatred.

NY officials also spoke out to condemn the violence.
