Is Donald Trump giving a voice to white supremacists?

Race relations in the US are causing yet more fury and soul searching – and raising more questions about President Donald Trump and his stance on white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

Critics are appalled at his reaction to the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday.

A protest by the ‘Unite the Right’ movement turned ugly. And a woman was killed when a car ploughed into the crowd.

Trump has blamed both sides for the violence – infuriating many Americans, including in his own Republican party.

So where is America heading?
