BEDMINSTER, N.J. (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald asked Americans to rise above hatred and bigotry to silence violent protests like those seen in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday.

Violence erupted between white nationalists and counter-demonstrators over the fate of a monument that honors a hero of the Civil War that ended slavery. One person was killed.

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides," told reporters at his New Jersey golf course.
