President Donald Trump on Sunday said he wants “peace with everyone” after white supremacists marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing one person and injuring more than a dozen others.
Trump, who said he had a “strong moral and religious conviction” against neo-Nazis and white supremacists, said he’d speak with “all of you” and “make sure that you get the peace you want with all your heart.”
White supremacists marched through Charlottesville on Saturday, marching in a procession that included the “Unite the Right” rally.
A man wearing a Confederate flag mask was arrested after a scuffle with counterprotesters.
A white supremacist with a bullhorn said the rally was “a threat to the country.”
The president has since expressed frustration that neo-Nazi groups have grown in strength since the protests began.
In a statement on Sunday, Trump called on “everybody who has committed or supported acts of violence” to be arrested.
