In comparison, Donald Trump insisted both sides were at fault during the demonstration that claimed the life of anti-fascist protester Heather Heyer.

Trump's response to the crisis has been attacked by both Republicans and Democrats, although is approach has been praised by the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke.

It took Trump more than 48 hours to condemn the racist organization before attempting to blame anti-fascist protesters for the violence.
