It was not clear if the crash was related to the outbreak of clashes in the Southern college town, where protesters fought hundreds of white supremacists trying to halt the planned removal of a Confederate statue from a park.

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides", Trump said in a short statement at a press conference in New Jersey, where he is having a working vacation. "It's been going on for a long time in our country".

Meanwhile, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper denounced the violence and said hatred had no place in society.

Onetime Trump rival Hillary Clinton unleashed a tweetstorm Saturday nearly immediately after Trump's televised remarks ended.

President Donald Trump blamed "many sides" for violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the wake of a white nationalist demonstration, drawing swift reactions.

He thought it necessary to comment on what is being the largest gathering of white supremacists in American history (I don't think they count Republican National Conventions).

The fact that white supremacists took a road trip to Virginia means nothing to me or Donald Trump.

Vice President Pence leaves next week on a trip to South America, where he will visit Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Panama. He adds that it's "certainly something that we could pursue".

"Mr. President, do you want the support of these white nationalist groups who say they support you, Mr. President?"

The White House has not yet acknowledged the death in the incident. "This hate and its terrorism must be confronted and defeated".

"We should call evil by its name", Sen. "My brother didn't give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home", Hatch tweeted.

Trump, as a candidate, frequently came under scrutiny for being slow to offer his condemnation of white supremacists. "The fact is the president has already surrounded himself in his office with alt right heroes and white nationalists". Chuck Grassley of Iowa referred to white nationalists and called the violence "homegrown terrorism".

He also penned a extensive response on Facebook to Friday night's march. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) joined officials from across the country to speak out against the violence. "There are not "many sides" here, just right and wrong". The impact sent bodies flying and left many sprawled in the streets, lying in pools of blood. I know I'm supposed to be an American too, but as I stand over America watching her choke on the regurgitated vomit of 400 years of white supremacy, I don't even feel sorry for her.

That quickly drew a response from Trump supporter and former Klan leader David Duke, who attended the event. But, he added, that quality also makes them vulnerable to events like the violence that took place in Charlottesville.

Politicians on both sides of the aisle agreed that such speech, which included racist and anti-Semitic slurs, should be condemned.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was among the high-ranking Republicans to speak out against the rally, calling it "repugnant" and "vile".

Virginia state police identified the two officers who died in the helicopter crash as 48-year-old Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates. A motive has not been released by authorities.

Members of a self-described militia, dressed in camouflage and armed with long guns, said they meant to keep the peace between opposing protesters.

The protests were precipitated by the city's government deciding to remove symbols of its confederate past, including a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

After a vehicle plowed into a crowd of protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle each spoke out against violence and bigotry.

Police initially declared an unlawful assembly at Emancipation Park at 11:35 a.m., just before the scheduled noon start time for the rally.
