Police in Charlottesville, VA have arrested a man in connection with a vehicle rampage that killed three anti-fascist protesters and injured dozens more.

James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Ohio was booked on charges of murder, hit and run, malicious wounding and failure to stop for accident involving a death.

“The car is registered to 20-year-old James Alex Fields of Ohio,” The Washington Post reports. Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail Superintendent Martin Kumer told The Post that a man with the same name and age was booked Saturday on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding, failure to stop for an accident involving a death, and hit and run. Kumer said Fields is being held without bail.”

The Post also mentioned President Donald Trump, who has received blistering criticism for his response to what many are calling an act of terrorism.

“Dozens of the white nationalists in Charlottesville were wearing red Make America Great Again hats,” The Post noted. “Asked by a reporter in New Jersey whether he wanted the support of white nationalists, Trump did not respond.”

“The worst part is that people got hurt and the police stood by and didn’t do a g—— thing,” David Copper, 70, of Staunton, VA told The Post.

“No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!” the counterprotesters chanted.

President Donald Trump's campaign has filed its fifth demand for the state of Georgia to audit the signatures on ballots.

The statement from the Trump team said that the "Georgia secretary of state should perform an immediate audit of the signatures on all absentee ballot applications and absentee ballot envelopes received for the Nov. 3 General Election. The Trump Campaign estimates that between 38,250 and 45,626 illegal votes from absentee ballots alone were cast in the state of Georgia -- far beyond the Biden-Harris ticket's current margin of 12,670 votes."

President Trump is pressing the U.S. Supreme Court to allow him to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census count -- a move that goes against more than 200 years of practice where non-citizen residents, even those in the U.S. illegally, were among those counted.
