'Unite The Right' Rally Turns Deadly: Trump, Sessions Respond

Virginia declares state of emergency after violence erupts at white nationalist event.
The highly publicized "Unite the Right" rally, organized by white nationalists, in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday turned deadly after a driver appears to have intentionally driven a car into a group of counter-protesters. AP reported Saturday afternoon that a hospital official said that one person had died and 19 are injured as a result of the tragic incident.
Video of the horrific incident shows a Dodge Charger appearing to accelerate into a crowd of counter-protesters. One witness who posted a video on Twitter describes the victims as "anti-racist protesters":
"A counter protester had allegedly thrown a rock at the car, causing the driver to swivel around and ram into people and cars in its way, before driving off with someone's shoe attached to its bumper," the Daily Mail reports.
