On Anniversary of Charlottesville, White Supremacist Rally in D.C. Fizzles

HeadlineAug 13, 2018

In Washington, a white supremacist rally outside the White House largely fizzled on Sunday when just over two dozen people showed up for the Unite the Right protest. They were vastly outnumbered by counterprotesters, journalists and police officers. Sunday’s Unite the Right rally came a year after the deadly white supremacist protest in Charlottesville. President Trump marked the anniversary of Charlottesville by writing on Twitter, “I condemn all types of racism.” Shortly after the deadly Charlottesville protest last year, Trump said there were “very fine people on both sides.”
