President Trump Issues Statement Ahead of Deadly Charlottesville Anniversary

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

First daughter Ivanka Trump received a rude reception Saturday night after she posted a three-tweet statement about the violence in Charlottesville - nearly one year to the day after the white-nationalist "Unite the Right" rally that left one woman dead.

Shortly before a pre-planned evening rally to mark the anniversary of a campus confrontation between torch-carrying white nationalists and counterprotesters, activists unfurled a banner that said, "Last year they came w/ torches".

"The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division", the president said from his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf resort.

"I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence", Trump wrote.

At least two separate anti-white nationalist rallies will also be taking place in Lafayette Park.

A anti-fascist protest in Charlottesville on Saturday passed off with little trouble.

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 past year.

Violent fighting broke out between attendees and counter-protesters that day.

In the year since, the city has taken steps toward meeting some of the activists' demands, despite resistance on some issues from the Republican- controlled state legislature.

The counter-demonstration organized by Lance's Shut It Down D.C. coalition will feature minority, immigrant and other groups targeted by white nationalists, said Lance, "so that people can see overwhelmingly that these folks are unacceptable and are invaders in our town".

"It means that I'm making available every resource.to ensure that we have safe events", she said at a news conference that was held at a Washington synagogue.

The area also includes the street where Heather Heyer was killed when a man attending the rally is accused of plowing into a crowd of people with his auto.

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.

Chants included "no justice, no peace", "take the statues down", and anti-police messages such as "last year they came with torches, this year, they came with badges".

In the forthcoming memoir, Manigault Newman says there are recordings of Trump using "the n-word" during tapings of his NBC reality show and that she personally witnessed him using racial epithets. "This year, I'm afraid of the police", Woolfork said. "This year, I'm afraid of the police", Woolfork said.

Protesters march at Lambeth field at the University of Virginia, ahead of the one year anniversary of the 2017 Charlottesville "Unite the Right" protests, in Charlottesville, Virginia, U.S., August 11, 2018. Two state troopers also died that day in a helicopter crash near Charlottesville.

An independent investigation of last year's rally violence, led by a former federal prosecutor, found the chaos stemmed from a passive response by law enforcement and poor preparation and coordination between state and city police.
