While President Trump has been heavily criticized for blaming "many sides" for the unrest, instead of denouncing the white nationalists for their bigotry and violence, many politicians and celebrities have spoken out against the clash on social media.

The former U.S. president sent the tweet on Sunday, following reports that white nationalists were marching on Charlottesville.

Then, on Monday afternoon - two days after the fact - Trump gave an impromptu announcement to the press, while gazing deeply into his teleprompter. "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".

The violent rally comprised of neo-Nazis, KKK members, and white supremacists led to the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer, who was run over by a auto during the event.
