As officials in the U.S. capital of Washington and in the neighboring state of Virginia brace for the first anniversary of a white nationalist rally that exploded in deadly violence, U.S. President Donald Trump Saturday issued a plea for unity.

Majuto said police "were not on our side" past year when white supremacists surrounded counterprotesters on the rotunda.

In a tweet Saturday, the president recalled the riot's in the Virginia town resulted in senseless death and division.

"Some of our members are concerned about safety for their staff and guests and came to us with questions as we are a resource for the restaurant community".

He then condemned all types of racism and acts of violence.

"Peace to ALL Americans!" he tweeted.

The remarks swayed from his comments after last year's "Unite the Right" rally in the city, which led to violence and several deaths, when Neo-Nazi sympathizers and counterprotesters clashed during demonstrations. "This progress that they are so afraid of - the rise of black leaders and Black Lives Matter getting bigger and people feeling safe to speak their mind - that is still happening".

A Charlottesville native, born in the segregated basement of the University of Virginia hospital, Brown-Grooms said white supremacy was present in Charlottesville long before the rally and is the "elephant in the room" the city now must deal with.

There were no arrests made during Saturday night's event on UVA's grounds, however police did arrest three people during the day in Charlottesville.

On Wednesday, Gov. Ralph Northam and the city both declared states of emergency, citing the "potential impacts of events" in Charlottesville during the anniversary weekend.

The rally attracted counter protesters, and clashes quickly broke out between the two groups. They unfurled a banner reading "Last year they came w/ torches". In an interview later Friday on "Anderson Cooper 360", Bro said she thinks it's time to "take the focus off Heather, as Heather would want us to do". James Alex Fields, Jr.is charged with driving his auto into a group of counter-protesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of people.

The founder of last year's event organized a march Sunday in Washington, D.C.

Those torches carried by white supremacists in Charlottesville a year ago shone a light on an ugly truth.

"While we are opposed adamantly to what we are going to hear, we know what our responsibility is - to protect First Amendment events, to protect Washingtonians and to protect our city", she said. A state police helicopter later crashed, killing two troopers.

Several events are scheduled in Charlottesville to observe what happened past year and promote racial healing. Trump said in a stunning press conference last August.

Bro said Heyer, a paralegal for a Charlottesville law firm, helped her understand white privilege, and she has been attempting to explain that to others.
