White nationalists and anti-racism protesters will face off just metres from the White House on Sunday as both mark the one-year anniversary of violent clashes in Charlottesville. Speaking to press in the days that followed, Trump stated, "You have people who are very fine people on both sides".

A memorial to Heather Heyer - who was killed at last year's Charlottesville rally by a driver facing murder and hate crime charges - stands at the site of her death.

"Some of our members are concerned about safety for their staff and guests and came to us with questions as we are a resource for the restaurant community".

Rep. Eljah Cummings on Pres. Trump condemning "all types of racism and acts of violence": "He has not gone far enough". "Peace to ALL Americans!", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Students from the University of Virginia, along with residents and anti-fascists, march across campus during a "Rally for Justice" on August 11, 2018, near downtown Charlottesville as the city marks the anniversary of last year's Unite the Right rally.

The local chapter of Black Lives Matter is also planning a separate march to the site.

Cryptic captain Pogba: ‘There are things I cannot say’
Pogba played a key part in France's successful World Cup campaign and was therefore allowed to miss most of United's pre-season. Pogba's penalty two minutes was, what I guess you can say, weird? "It's not a role that I give to myself".

In Washington, thousands protesting the white supremacist rally also are expected at numerous locations, and many plan to converge on Lafayette Park, before the organizer of the rally, Jason Kessler, and his followers arrive. Gov. Northam declared a state of emergency in advance, allowing Charlottesville to have a heavy police presence. Government and police officials in Washington have expressed confidence the city can manage the events without violence; the mayor and police chief have promised a massive security mobilization to keep protesters and counter-protesters apart. They unfurled a banner reading "Last year they came w/ torches". James Alex Fields, Jr.is charged with driving his vehicle into a group of counter-protesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of people.

"We the people of Washington, D.C. say unequivocally that we denounce hate, we announce that we denounce anti-Semitism, and we denounce the rhetoric that we expect to hear this Sunday", said Mayor Muriel Bowser.

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.

Those torches carried by white supremacists in Charlottesville a year ago shone a light on an ugly truth. Bro's desk at the Heather Heyer Foundation sports one of Heyer's favorite sayings: "If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention".

When asked by Cooper whether she had seen any change in Trump's views on what happened in Charlottesville, or on race issues in America, Bro said, "I have other things to do than to worry about what he's doing". The day's death toll rose to three when a state police helicopter that had been monitoring the event and assisting with the governor's motorcade crashed, killing two troopers. On Saturday night, she was angry at the police response to the student rally.

Mr. Trump faced bipartisan criticism for his response in the aftermath of the unrest past year.
