How the alt-right and Republicans reacted differently to Donald Trumps comments about Charlottesville

On 15 August, US President Donald Trump once again blamed both sides for the deadly violence at the Unite the Right march in Charlottesville. One person was killed after the far-right marchers clashed with anti-fascists in the Virginia town. Despite the presence of white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups in the marches, President Trump has continued to condemn both sides, much to the delight of the so-called alt-right and other right wing supporters, and the dismay of many of his Republican colleagues.

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.
