Britain's Prime Minister is the latest person to slam US President Donald Trump for saying there's "blame on all sides" in the wake of the tragedy in Virginia.

The President refused to single out white nationalists at a Charlottesville rally against the removal of a statue of Confederate army leader Robert E. Lee from a local park.

Alt-right groups, members of the Klu Klux Klan and neo-Nazis were among those gathered in a "Unite The Right" protest on Saturday, sparking a counter-rally from anti-racism advocates.

32-year-old Heather Heyer died after a suspected white nationalist crashed his car into the crowd of anti-racist demonstrators. James Fields, 20, has been charged with her murder. 

Prime Minister Theresa May telling reporters leaders should always condemn the far-right.

"I see no equivalence between those who propound fascist views and those who oppose them and I think it is important for all those in positions of responsibility to condemn far-right views wherever we hear them."

Former KKK leader David Duke has repeatedly praised the US President for his comments.
