Saturday, August 12, the US President responded to the tragedy in Virginia, but did not mention the violence from the extreme right, which caused serious criticism by the American public and world leaders.
"The perpetrators will be prosecuted"
This time Donald trump made more stringent wording. "All who broke the law are brought to justice", — he promised. Trump said that he discussed the investigation with FBI Director Christopher Ray and United States attorney General Jeff Sessom. "Regardless of skin color, we all live by the same laws," he added.
State of emergency
The authorities of Virginia on August 13 in Charlottesville imposed the state of emergency after hundreds of nationalists staged a protest against city plans to dismantle the monument to Confederate General Robert Edward Lee. The protest was supported in particular racist group "Ku Klux Klan" and right-wing extremist movement "right-wing Alternative".
The demonstration turned into violent clashes and far-right nationalists with their opponents. In the course of events in Charlottesville three people were killed and dozens were injured.
