President Trump has insisted there was “blame on both sides” during the Charlottesville clashes that left a 32-year-old woman dead.

In a fiery press conference at Trump Tower in New York, Mr Trump also defended himself against criticism that he was slow to condemn the violence.

The President said he had wanted to get all the facts before he made his second, stronger statement where he called neo-Nazis and white supremacists “repugnant”.

His first statement had claimed “many sides” were involved, and stopped short of outright condemnation of the far-right.
