President Trump on Saturday condemned "all types of racism" on the eve of the one-year anniversary of a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and counter-demonstrations in which one woman was killed.

During an interview this summer, Kessler said he was still "coming to terms" with what happened at last year's Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville and said he apologized to the family of Heather Heyer, who was killed when a motorist drove his auto into a group of counter-protesters.

Several students said they were angry that the police response was far larger this year compared with last year, when people carrying tiki torches the white nationalist rally went mostly unchecked.

Taking, as ever, to Twitter, the 45th President of the United States referred to last year's incidents as "senseless death and division" and urged the entire nation to come together as one. Police at last year's event were criticized for being caught off guard by the violence, failing to keep feuding groups apart and not reacting quickly enough as fights broke out. Peace to ALL Americans!

A months-long investigation by former U.S. Attorney Tim Heaphy into what happened during the deadly "Unite the Right" rally found that law enforcement failed on multiple fronts, including one that may have led directly to the death of Heather Heyer. He added that the white nationalist protesters in Charlottesville included "some very fine people".

They believe there were no passengers on board and no structures hit when the plane crashed into Ketron Island on Friday night. They also will work to recover the remains of the 29-year-old Pierce County man thought to be the only person on the plane.

Activists in Charlottesville plan a rally against hate on Saturday, and numerous same alt-right groups that appeared in last year's "Unite the Right" rally are planning a sequel in Washington, D.C., on Sunday. Two state troopers also died that day in a helicopter crash near Charlottesville. I hope that as we remember the lives lost a year ago, we also renew our commitment to equity and diversity.

Speaking after the game, the Italian was pleased with how his side got the job done against a "physical" Huddersfield line-up. However, they will certainly need to be more clinical and penetrative if they are to build on last season's fine work.
