One woman was killed when a car ploughed into a crowd in the city. That incident had followed a far-right rally which was supported by white supremacists and neo-Nazis protesting against the removal of a statue of Robert E Lee, a general who had fought for the pro-slavery Confederacy during the US Civil War. Mr Trump faced bipartisan criticism when he first condemned violence - in which anti-racism protester Heather Heyer , 32, was killed - "on many sides". On Wednesday, Mr Trump met South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, who had condemned his comments in the aftermath of the violence. Why did people find Trump remarks offensive? Mr Trump revived controversy over the issue on Thursday, when he said, after being asked about the meeting with Mr Scott: "I think especially in light of the advent of Antifa [anti-fascists], if you look at what's going on there. You have some pretty bad dudes on the other side also and essentially that's what I said. "Now because of what's happened since then with Antifa. When you look at really what's happened since Charlottesville, a lot of people are saying and people have actually written, ชุดเครื่องนอน 'Gee, Trump may have a point.' "I said there's some very bad people on the other side also." Hours later, Mr Trump signed a resolution "rejecting white nationalists, white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups". The resolution, which the president said he was "pleased to sign", was unanimously passed by Congress earlier this week.
