President Trump is urging ‘peace to all Americans’ as cities across the US are bracing for Unite the Right 2018 marches this weekend.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and the city of Charlottesville have declared a state of emergency in anticipation of the white nationalist parades and protests set to take place in Charlottesville, Washington DC, and other towns this Sunday.

‘The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. We must come together as a nation,’ Trump tweeted on Saturday morning.

‘I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans!’ he added.

In DC a Unite the Right parade and rally is slated to take place with permits for protest granted in different parts of Capitol Hill.

The march will start at a Metro station near the Capitol at 5pm and end with a demonstration in Lafayette Square Park that sits directly opposite from the White House. The rally permit request estimated about 400 attendees.

Black Lives Matter also have a permit for counter-protests. An individual who plans to burn a Conderedate flag in the park also reportedly received a permit, according to ABC.

Washington DC will tighten security on Sunday with guns being banned from the premises, even for permit holders, according to Police Chief Peter Newsham.

White nationalists will also be kept separate from counter-protesters, according to USA Today.
