“My condolences, also, to the grieving families of the two state troopers and quick recovering for those injured,” she added
White supremacist groups joined in Charlottesville this weekend for a “Unite the Right” rally and to protest the removal of a Confederate statue. On Saturday, a man with ties to white supremacist groups drove into a crowd of anti-fascist protesters, killing Bro’s daughter, Heather Heyer, and injuring many others.
During an impromptu press conference, President Trump issued yet another stern warning to those who committed violence in Charlottesville over the weekend. “Justice will be delivered,” promised President Trump.
