US President Donald Trump has spoken out against racist violence after the killing of a protester in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday.

“Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs,” he told reporters.

The Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists were “repugnant” to everything Americans held dear.

Heather Heyer, 32, died and 19 others were hurt when a car ploughed into demonstrators in Charlottesville.
