"Why didn't you intervene, though?" a reporter pressed.
Hours before Trump made that speech, he bashed Frazier on Twitter. He is a closet white supremacist that voters were hoodwinked through false promises and lies into putting him in the White House.
The president's implication that "many sides" were responsible for the violence, didn't sit well with both lawmakers and private citizens.
Speaking at a White House press conference, Mr Trump said: "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".
"I have a message to all the white supremacists and Nazis who came into Charlottesville today".
"When it comes to President Trump, I'm with Cory Gardner", the SC senator told Fox News.
He later added that it's hard for White House aides to change the president and his way of thinking, but that those around him need to give "direct advice, to be blunt with him".
A 32-year-old woman was killed in the auto crash, officials said.
Trump's "words were not - not - what this nation needs", McAuliffe, a Democrat, said, his voice breaking with emotion. "Trump's not a white supremacist", Bloom told AP.
"I'm not going to make any bones about it". It's what any American would do.
Alt-right and white nationalist rallygoers are pointing fingers at the counterprotesters who showed up to denounce them. Will they denounce the racism behind the next iteration of Trump's Muslim ban?
Heading into Sunday, law enforcement officials hope to gain a better idea of the suspect's motives and his background, while relatives of the injured pray for their loved ones.
Attorney general Jeff Sessions said that the FBI's Richmond field office and Rick Mountcastle, the US Attorney for the Western District of Virginia, would lead the investigation. Charlottesville authorities tonight reported that a 20-year-old OH man had been arrested and had been charged with murder. Heather Heyer, 32, was killed and 19 others were injured.
It was unclear Sunday what the specific scope of the investigation was. The Justice Department is also looking into whether Fields was helped or egged on by others to mow down counter-protesters.
"Virginia has come so far in recent decades to put division behind us".
Virginia State Police will be assisting local authorities, and a spokesman said the Virginia National Guard "will closely monitor the situation and will be able to rapidly respond and provide additional assistance if needed".
"You can be a domestic terrorist if you're trying to intimidate the population, or if you're trying to affect the conduct of the government by mass destruction", Fishwick said. "Truly bad people!" To be clear, the "truly bad people" he is referring to are the journalists not the white supremacists.
When Trump said during the election past year that it was time "to take our country back", he was speaking in words that Duke and his cohort understood perfectly. "The President of the United States should say so", McCain said in a statement.
"We condemn in the strongest possible terms the egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides".
"This isn't about President Trump - this is about a level of violence and hatred that could not be tolerated in this country", Bossert told CNN's Jake Tapper.
In another incident in 2010, she said her son smacked her in the head and locked her in the bathroom after she told him to stop playing video games. "This racial intolerance and racial bigotry can not be condoned".

Bossert replied that Trump "didn't dignify the names of these groups of people, but rather addressed the fundamental issue".
The White House scrambled to elaborate on Trump's response to the race-fueled clashes as he came under bipartisan scolding for not clearly condemning hate groups.
"I wouldn't have recommended that statement", added Scaramucci, whose abbreviated tenure was characterized by a pledge to let Trump express himself without interference from staff members. And that just can't happen, it can't continue to happen, it shouldn't have happened in the first place, but what I've seen today just proves to me that it's not a joke.
Still, the tone and tenor of the president's comments Saturday - noticeably less fiery than what he has had to say on Twitter and in public settings about the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, and the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell - reflected Trump's own thinking. Posobiec praised Trump's remarks, saying the president was "making it rain red pills" - a prolific alt-right symbol of knowledge and wisdom that stems from the plot of The Matrix. Even more forceful was the tacit endorsement from within the Trump Administration. She further noted that as a white woman it's her duty to attend protests.
