What about the alt-left? Trump asks as he blames both sides for violence in Charlottesville

US President Donald Trump has maintained that both left- and right-wing groups were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, which left one anti-racist protester dead and 19 others injured. At a press conference at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday (15 August), Trump repeatedly criticised alt-left groups that he claimed were violent in their interactions with the white supremacist and Nazi groups that rallied to protest the removal of a Robert E Lee statue from a park. Trump also insisted that he was not wrong in failing to condemn Nazi and white supremacist groups following the events in Charlottesville, while blaming left-wing supporters for charging at the alt-right.
