Americans Protest Due To Trump's Response To Fatal White Nationalist Rally.

Thousands of protesters crowded the streets around Trump Tower. The protest follows a series of rallies across New York City and the country due to President Donald Trump's response to the fatal white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, violence - on many sides," Trump said in Bedminster, New Jersey, in brief remarks before signing legislation extending a programme allowing veterans to receive private health care.
"We must love each other, respect each other and cherish our history - together."

Even as Trump called on the nation to unite, many faulted the president - and his reference to "many sides" - for not strongly coming out against the type of far-right groups that supported his campaign and organised the weekend's events.

According to Reuters report, The Charlottesville police chief said a driver was in custody after a 32-year-old woman died and 19 sustained injuries ranging from minor to life-threatening when a car hit counter-protesters in downtown Charlottesville. A further 15 injuries were reported in connection with the protests, police said. Two state police troopers died when their helicopter crashed nearby.
