GREENSBORO, N.C.-- Three people died and dozens others were injured Saturday when white nationalist groups clashed with counter protesters in Charlottesville, Va.
One of the three deaths came after a driver of a silver Dodge Charger plowed into one of the groups streaming away from the rally at Emancipation Park through the narrow downtown streets.
The violence prompted a news conference by President Donald Trump and dozens of social media responses from current and former lawmakers from around the country.
