President Donald Trump briefly acknowledged the year-anniversary of the violent and deadly Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally in a Saturday morning tweet.

Trump drew backlash last year when he blamed “both sides” for the violent white nationalist rally that left a counter-protester dead and dozens of others injured.

Despite Trump being out of town, Washington D.C. is preparing to ramp up security for a Charlottesville rally anniversary event outside the White House Sunday.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and the city of Charlottesville declared a state of emergency ahead of the one-year anniversary of the rally as well.
