Charlottesville protesters demonstrating against racism on one-year anniversary of deadly rally

President Trump marked the anniversary of the deadly neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville, Virginia with a tweet that did not single out white supremacists as responsible, while his Jewish daughter named the racist ideology and condemned it.

Unite the Right is holding a rally Sunday evening in Washington, D.C. Some marchers linked arms as they walked.

President Trump grew criticism past year for his initial response the 2017 "Unite the Right" rally as he said "hate" came from "all sides".

Demonstrators on Sunday chanted, "Will you protect us?"

The tweet appeared to echo his equivocations after last year's violence when he blamed "many sides" for the violence and said there were "very fine people" on both sides.

As the news of his death emerged, high profile names from the world of wrestling have paid tribute to Neidhart. Known by their bright pink ring gear, the Hart Foundation became two-time WWF Tag Team Champions.

Two days later, after a firestorm of criticism, the president said: "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". President Trump addressed concerns this morning tweeting that last year's event resulted in "senseless death and division" and condemning all forms of "racism and acts of violence".

"We celebrate the success of this economy without any question", he said. "But the reality of it is that there are pockets of this nation where the recovery has been uneven and the opportunity zone legislation supported by the president will have a positive impact, a power impact, in communities that are distressed and, disproportionately, communities that are black and brown".

A student rally has been planned this weekend in Charlottesville to reclaim the campus square where the white supremacists marched previous year wielding tiki torches.

"I don't know exactly what will happen, but it probably will not be good", tweeted Richard Spencer, a leader of the so-called "alt-right" movement, who said he would be staying away from the rally. The rhetoric is not always helpful. "But the fact of the matter is that I'm more interested and more concerned with the progress of one nation and one American family than I am just the Republican Party".
