The White House has moved to clarify a statement made by Donald Trump in the wake of the attack in Virginia on Saturday (August 12).
One woman died in Charlottesville after a car was rammed into a group of people who were peacefully protesting against a white supremacist rally.
A separate incident saw two police officers die after a helicopter monitoring the rally crashed outside the city, and a 20-year-old has been charged with murder in the wake of the attack.
Giving a press conference to respond, Trump condemned violence "on all sides."
Immediately, this prompted a backlash from both Democrats and Republicans for not singling out white supremacists or white nationalists in the statement.
However White House officials has now moved to clarify this comment, saying the President was simply calling for unity and togetherness in the wake of the violence.
