White nationalists and anti-racism protesters will face off just metres from the White House on Sunday as both mark the one-year anniversary of violent clashes in Charlottesville.

Officials have declared states of emergency for both the city of Charlottesville and the state of Virginia to help law enforcement mobilize state and local resources for security reasons. Virginia State Police Superintendent Gary Settle said more than 700 state police will be activated during the weekend.

The increased police presence is meant to serve as a "deterrent to anyone who would want to come into the community and exercise their First Amendment rights in a way that would violate someone else's First Amendment rights", Brackney said. Police say Miska bought razor blades inside a business, which were included in the city's ordinance to ban.

Manigault Newman calls Trump a "racist, misogynist and bigot" in her memoir and claims, without providing evidence, that there is a recording of Trump using the n-word. He denies the allegations.

"We did not want to have the entire city militarized", said King. Newsham said the white nationalists and counterprotesters. During a "Bikers for Trump" event in Bedminster New Jersey, the President told reporters that Manigault Newman was a "lowlife".
