One year on, Trump still fuels racial divide

Posted August 15, 2018

First daughter Ivanka Trump received a rude reception Saturday night after she posted a three-tweet statement about the violence in Charlottesville - nearly one year to the day after the white-nationalist "Unite the Right" rally that left one woman dead.

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".

"It's clear from the action of this president, 45 - that's probably the first time I've said "president" with this administration - that a lot of the hate that we're dealing with, he's bringing to light", Walker said in an interview with "Face the Nation" that will air Sunday.

An attempt to reignite white nationalist forces has fallen flat, however, with only around 20 to 40 people attending this year's Washington D.C rally.

The tweets come on the anniversary of deadly unrest triggered by a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The neo-Nazis are planning to protest in front of the White House, while a coalition of progressive groups has organized an "anti-racist" counter-protest nearby. Police kept the neo-Nazis and counter-protesters apart.

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.

Scott, one of the nation's most prominent Black Republicans, was troubled by Trump's statements and met with president in September 2017.

CNN anchor Victor Blackwell responded to President Donald Trump's tweet about the anniversary of Charlottesville by reminding viewers of Trump's own record.

August 12th, 2018 marks one year since Heather Heyer was tragically killed by a neo-nazi in Charlottesville in a violent ordeal known as the "Unite the Right" rally. "But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides".

A year after a white nationalist rally traumatized Charlottesville, in the US state of Virginia, with riots and blood, the city is still healing from the shock.

In one of the most recent race-related flare-ups, a black former White House employee, Omarosa Manigault Newman, has written in an upcoming memoir that Trump was caught on mic uttering the N-word "multiple times" during the making of his hit reality TV show "The Apprentice" prior to his presidential run, and that there are tapes to prove it.

Since becoming mayor, Walker said, she hasn't heard from any Trump administration officials about the violence last August.
