Several hundred people were peacefully marching through downtown. "President Trump needs to take a break from the golf course and denounce these hate rallies immediately with clear and strong language".

On May 13, noted white nationalist Richard Spencer led protesters with torches in a Charlottesville rally against the planned removal of Confederate statues in the city. It remains unclear if the driver of the vehicle has been apprehended.

Noting that most of the protesters were from out of the state, McAuliffe said the emergency was declared to assist local government in restoring public safety.

Sen. Bernie Sanders wrote, "The white nationalist demonstration in #Charlottesville is a reprehensible display of racism and hatred that has no place in our society".

Kessler further claimed that "hundreds of people have been put out of their accommodations" by Airbnb's decision, a number that the company has declined to confirm.

Some of the white nationalists cited Trump's victory as validation for their beliefs.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have called for peace. "These rights belong to the "Unite the Right" activists who will express their beliefs, and to the many others who disagree with them".

Violence has broken out ahead of a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, forcing city, county and state authorities to declare a state of emergency.

"This isn't how he should have to grow up", she said.

The protesters were met with counter-demonstrators and tear gas.

The clash is the latest in a series of confrontations in Charlottesville, situated about 100 miles from Washington DC, voted to remove the statue of General Lee.

Video showed protesters also chanting "Jews will not replace us" and "white lives matter".

"This is about an anti-white climate within the Western world and the need for white people to have advocacy like other groups do", he said in an interview.

"UVA is public in the most profound and meaningful sense of that word; we are committed to the public good, and we seek to recognize and represent the great diversity of the public in our commonwealth and in the country", said one earlier statement.

"White supremacists have descended upon Charlottesville again to evoke a reaction as ugly and violent as their beliefs", he said.

He blamed Charlottesville officials for cancelling the rally. Virginia State Police is leading the Commonwealth's planning and response for these events and will be on the scene in a support capacity before, during and after the planned rally.

Businesses in the area closed down for the day due to the protest.

Writing on Twitter, she said: 'They are coming for the church!
