    A seemingly beleaguered and uncomfortable President Donald Trump Saturday afternoon refused to denounce white supremacism, white nationalism, neo-Nazism, Neo-Confederism, or the so-called "alt-right" in the aftermath of a white supremacist rally earlier today that left one dead.

    "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides," the president said at a press event minutes. Minutes earlier the Mayor of Charlottesville announced one person had been killed by a car that rammed into a group of counter-protestors in the aftermath of a white supremacist rally in the Virginia college town. Thousands of white supremacists traveled to "reclaim our country" at a "Unite the Right" rally.

    Reporters gave the President the opportunity to condemn white nationalism, but he ignored them.

    In a stunning display, Trump refused to even answer a question about "white nationalists" from a reporter:

    Trump also called for a "healing procedure."

    "I love all of the people of our country," Trump said, stressing the word "all."

    After signing a bill Trump walked off, ignoring the questions of reporters about white supremacism and if today's killing was terrorism.

    Trump actually rattled off some of the "accomplishments" he believes he's achieved during the middle of his remarks, rather that mention white supremacism.

    "We want to get this situation straightened out in Charlottesville," Trump said, adding  "we want to see what we're doing wrong as a country."
