A newspaper in Charlottesville, Va., used President Trump’s “fire and fury” warning to North Korea to describe white supremacist protests in the city on Friday night.
“Fire and fury” led the front page of Saturday’s Daily Progress, stationed above a photo of tiki torch-bearing protesters rallying at the University of Virginia.
The protesters chanted “white lives matter,” “you will not replace us,” and “blood and soil,” a phrase associated with the Nazis, while marching Friday night.
Local and state emergencies were declared in the city Saturday as clashes between white supremacists and counter-protesters turned violent.
Trump vowed “fire and fury” against North Korea earlier this week after North Korea said it had expanded its nuclear weapon capabilities.
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Trump told reporters Tuesday. “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
