Speaking from New Jersey, President Donald Trump condemned the violence at the rally, calling it an "egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides".

McAuliffe and Charlottesville City Manager Maurice Jones each made reference to "three fatalities" during the press conference, but did not elaborate about the additional two beyond the automobile incident. "He and his administration pursue policies and use rhetoric that embolden racism and bigotry".

Utah lawmakers were quick Saturday to denounce the violence in Charlottesville, where one person was killed and dozens more injured when a auto plowed into a crowd of people protesting a white nationalist rally.

Virginia Professional Fire Fighters president, Robert Bragg III, said on Twitter that the helicopter involved in the crash was a state police helicopter.

"There is no place for you here, there is no place for you in America", he continued. However, here we have a group of white supremacists and literal Nazis who are starting fights and throwing torches, and this is somehow still only being called a protest/rally/march.

Saturday's demonstrations turned deadly when a auto plowed through a crowd of counter-protesters, resulting in multiple injuries and at least one death.

Garcetti released a statement condemning the violence later Saturday afternoon.
