Washington( CNN) White nationalist and neo-Nazi hate groups have induced headlines over the last two days for the violent conflicts in Virginia on Saturday, but what does their influence definitely sounds like outside of Charlottesville?

President Donald Trump denounced violence “on many sides” on Saturday after protesters and counterprotesters clashed. But the President faced bipartisan criticism for failing to call out the racist and white supremacist opinions of those who had traveled from across the country for the event; he eventually did so Monday afternoon, a full 48 hours after his first tweet on the topic.

“Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminal and thugs, ” Trump said on Monday, “including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other loathe groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
