Sen. Kamala Harris denounced the violence carried out by White supremacists in Virginia and criticized President Donald Trump for refusing to explicitly address the issue, reports The Huffington Post. She was one of many Asian American leaders who spoke out against the violence from the White nationalists.

On Saturday, a violent confrontation broke out between a White nationalist group and opposing protestors, according to CNN. A driver who was aligned with the White nationalist group drove into the crowd, killing one and injuring more than 30 others.
