U.Va. was the scene of a torch-lit march the night before the first Unite the Right rally past year, where hundreds of white nationalists, carrying Tiki torches, gathered at the rotunda and surrounded a group of counterprotesters around the Jefferson statue.

White supremacists are set to rally outside the White House on Sunday, one year after torch-wielding neo-Nazis clashed with counter demonstrators in a deadly protest that highlighted the growing boldness of the extreme right in the United States.

"The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division", the president tweeted.

"I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence", Trump wrote.

Tension gripped Washington, DC, and Charlottesville, Va., ahead of the "Unite the Right 2" rally, scheduled for Sunday in the nation's capital on the anniversary of last year's deadly demonstration in the Virginia city. I hope that as we remember the lives lost a year ago, we also renew our commitment to equity and diversity.

They declined, though, to detail specific security threats or whether known white supremacists and nationalists, such as rally organizer Jason Kessler, would be in the area.

The states of emergency will allow state and city agencies to get additional resources, Gov. Ralph Northam said in a statement.

Violent fighting broke out between attendees and counter-protesters that day. They unfurled a banner reading "Last year they came w/ torches".

Stern and other state, county and city officials said to expect large numbers of law enforcement officers in and around Charlottesville as part of a large-scale, multiagency safety and security plan to head off violence. Thirty-two-year-old counter-protester Heather Heyer was killed by self-described white supremacist James Alex Fields Jr., who rammed a vehicle into a crowd at high speed.

Trump has retweeted white nationalist material, said Mexicans crossing the USA border are rapists and drug dealers, once referred to a Hispanic Miss Universe as "Miss Housekeeping" and employed Steve Bannon, a central figure of the new "alt-right" in America, as his campaign chief and top strategist for a time.

Saturday marks one year since a group of white nationalists descended on the University of Virginia's campus.

The rally is being billed as a "white civil rights rally" meant to protest "civil rights abuse in Charlottesville".

Throughout the day, only three people were arrested on misdemeanor charges, one for trespassing, one for disorderly conduct and one for possessing a prohibited item, the city said. A state police helicopter later crashed, killing two troopers.

Lisa Woolfork, a University of Virginia professor and Black Lives Matter Charlottesville organizer, said police are mounting a "huge, overwhelming show of force to compensate for last year's inaction".

Mr. Trump faced bipartisan criticism for his response in the aftermath of the unrest a year ago.

Bro said Heyer, a paralegal for a Charlottesville law firm, helped her understand white privilege, and she has been attempting to explain that to others.

"I don't know exactly what will happen, but it probably will not be good", tweeted Richard Spencer, a leader of the so-called "alt-right" movement, who said he would be staying away from the rally.
