Trump, as a candidate, frequently came under scrutiny for being slow to offer his condemnation of white supremacists.

"People need to wake up, recognize that and resist it as fearlessly as it needs to be done", said Carl Dix, a leader of the Refuse Fascism group organizing demonstrations in New York, San Francisco and other cities. As we saw yesterday, failure to do so puts American lives at risk.

Counter-protesters were also on hand, and the two sides clashed, numbering more than 1,000, with people throwing punches, hurling water bottles and unleashing chemical sprays.
