CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia (AP) President Donald Trump is condemning ``in the strongest possible terms'' what he's calling an ``egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides'' after clashes at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
A hospital official says one person is dead, 19 injured after a car plowed into a group of protesters in downtown Charlottesville.
The driver is now in custody.
Disturbances began Friday night during a march through the University of Virginia. Saturday's clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters have grown so violent the governor has declared a state of emergency and police have ordered people to disperse.
Trump is calling for ``a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives.''
The president made his comments at a bill signing ceremony at his golf club in New Jersey where he's on a working vacation.
Trump says he's spoken with the governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, and ``we agreed that the hate and the division must stop and must stop right now.''
He says ``we have to come together as Americans with love for our nation and ... true affection for each other.''
