Ivanka Trump Condemns White Supremacy, Neo-Nazism on Charlottesville Anniversary

  • White nationalists participate in a torch-lit march on the grounds of the University of Virginia ahead of the Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville Virginia

Police at last year's event were criticized for being caught off guard by the violence, failing to keep feuding groups apart and not reacting quickly enough as fights broke out. "Peace to ALL Americans!" he tweeted.

Kessler has been promoting this year's event on various social media platforms and blames the city of Charlottesville for violence during last year's rally, when armed neo-Nazis descended on the normally tranquil southern town.

Carlson's group locked arms and chanted slogans of their own, including "Black Lives Matter!" and "No Nazis, No KKK, No Fascist USA!".

And while the authors of the book make the rounds of the media to promote their work (which are yet to attract any legal action or restriction) Washington braces itself for a white nationalist rally on Sunday, when liberals - who are holding a counter-protest - will come face-to-face with a core Trump constituency they see as dregs of America.

"Nothing would excite us any better than for this to be noneventful and folks to go home and it be a peaceful weekend for all", Settle said. "We denounce hate. We denounce anti-Semitism, and we denounce the rhetoric we expect to hear this Sunday".

"Officers will be on high alert for anyone who will be carrying a firearm", he warned.

In one of the most recent race-related flare-ups, a black former White House employee, Omarosa Manigault Newman, has written in an upcoming memoir that Trump was caught on mic uttering the N-word "multiple times" during the making of his hit reality TV show "The Apprentice" prior to his presidential run, and that there are tapes to prove it.

"The City of Charlottesville, Charlottesville Police and all partner agencies involved in safeguarding the Greater Charlottesville Region throughout the weekend continue to remain vigilant in anticipation of planned events", city officials said in a news release.

Previous year the objective of the rally on August 12, 2017 was to protest city plans to remove a statue of General Robert E. Lee who led the Confederate army during the Civil War.

In addition, they will enforce a state law that prohibits wearing masks in certain places.

Besides some verbal confrontations between riot police and demonstrators, a rally in Charlottesville marking the anniversary of last year's deadly clash between right- and left-wing activists passed without any major incident. They stopped to pay their respects at the corner where a local woman, Heather Heyer, was killed when an OH man drove his vehicle into a crowd of counterprotesters following last year's rally.

Two Virginia state troopers who were monitoring the rally were later killed in the line of duty when their helicopter crashed.

On Saturday in Charlottesville, the downtown area was virtually locked down, with more than 700 officers on hand to ensure there would be no violence.

Several events are scheduled in Charlottesville to observe what happened previous year and promote racial healing.

The organizer of last year's rally, Jason Kessler, had vowed to hold a rally in a park near the White House on August 12 after Charlottesville denied him a permit.

A white supremacist rally is set for Sunday in Washington, D.C., but it is not clear if the National Socialist Movement will be participating.

"If something happens in Washington, it can easily affect Northern Virginia", Northam told Richmond-based WRVA radio station on Wednesday.

Unite the Right leaders said they are using Sunday's rally in the nation's capital as an opportunity to stand up for their civil rights.
