As white surpemacists clashed with counterprotesters Saturday morning in Charlottesville Va., government officials from around the country condemned the violence and called for an end to the rally. 

Later in the afternoon, a car plowed into a group of people protesting the white supremacist rally.

The reaction came from both sides of the aisle, with many condemning not just the violence but the views of the white nationalists, who objected to the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee.
