The governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, has said that his only message for the white supremacists who brought chaos to the city of Charlottesville is "Go home".

Susana Martinez said Saturday she was asking her state residents to pray for the victims in Charlottesville and to condemn "the white supremacists responsible for this cowardly attack".

"Three fatalities today, in addition to many individuals who have been hurt", McAuliffe said at a news conference following the tragic events. "It is now clear that public safety can not be safeguarded without additional powers, and that the mostly-out-of-state protesters have come to Virginia to endanger our citizens and property", McAuliffe said in a statement posted to Twitter.

President Donald Trump said hate and division have no place in America. "You're all among the best this nation produces", Trump tweeted.
