"I am so disappointed in [Trump's] lack of response in regards to calling this domestic terrorism and white supremacy. He needs to denounce it," the city's Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy told reporters on Sunday adding that every elected US official should press Trump on condemning the white supremacists for their attacks.
Bellamy also said he expected further white supremacist rallies as a means to "try to redeem themselves."

About a hundred anti-racism demonstrators gathered in downtown Charlottesville near the police station on Sunday following Saturday's clash between far-right activists and counterprotesters. The situation was calm, however, there was a heavy police presence in the area with several officers in riot gear or carrying assault rifles.
The far-right demonstrations started in Charlottesville on Friday leading to the major "Unite the Right" rally on Saturday organized as a protest against the plans to remove a monument to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The rally led to clashes between the demonstrators and counterprotesters, culminating in a car ramming incident, which left one person dead and over 30 injured.
