President Donald Trump is blaming "many sides" for the violent clashes between white supremacists and counter-protesters in Virginia. Here is everything Trump has tweeted since he was sworn in as 45th president of the United States.
The president's reluctance to condemn white supremacists also stood in stark contrast by his insistence of calling out "radical Islamic terrorism" by name. Cory Gardner, who reprimanded President Donald Trump and urged him to "call evil by its name".
"Praying for those hurt & killed today in Charlottesville", he also wrote. "This is nothing short of domestic terrorism & should be named as such".
Gardner and other Colorado politicians, including U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, reacting to Trump's remarks about the violence in Virginia. In comments from Bedminister, N.J., Trump blamed "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides".
"My heart wrenches for VA & I pray for the safety of all in #Charlottesville during these horrific turn of events", said Denver Mayor Michael Hancock.
White nationalists had assembled in Charlottesville to vent their frustration against the city's plans to take down a statue of Confederal Gen. Robert E. Lee.
He also did not label the later assault, which occurred when a car plowed into a crowd of protesters in the city's downtown area after police halted the rally. He also offered a call for unity among Americans of "all races, creeds and colors".
Other Twitter users responded to Gardner with calls to back his words with actions, and questioned Gardner's past support for President Trump and his policies. Embrace inclusion, celebrate differences-that's the America we believe in.
U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, a Democrat representing Denver, in a tweet said that "domestic terrorism in #Charlottesville must not go unanswered".
"We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for", he wrote on his personal Twitter account. He added that he was "heartbroken to hear about loss of life in today's domestic terror attack".
All Americans have the right to peaceful protest and free speech, but there is no room for violence in our society.
Trump says he's spoken with the governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, and "we agreed that the hate and the division must stop and must stop right now". "Let's come together as one!"
"It's been going on for a long time in our country".
