Donald Trump has condemned the violence in Charlottesville as “evil” and denounced white supremacists after a protester died at an anti-fascism rally in Virginia.

The US President said the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists were “repugnant” to everything Americans “hold dear” after the fatal incident on Saturday,

His comments came after he was criticised for not immediately or specifically denouncing the extremist elements of the weekend’s “Unite the Right” in his initial comments.

Heather Heyer, 32, died and 19 others were injured when a car rammed into people protesting against the far-right march.

“Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,” Trump said.

Speaking at the White House on Monday, he added: “All of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our creator, we are equal under the law.”

He paid tribute to Ms Heyer and to two police officers killed in a helicopter crash after helping to tackle the unrest.
