Flowers, candles, and chalk-written messages surround a photograph of Heather Heyer on the spot where she was killed and 19 others were injured at a white-supremacist rally August 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Despite the threats, Bro said she refuses to live in fear and has vowed to continue to carry on her daughter's legacy by establishing a foundation in her name.

Bro wants to build a legacy for her daughter, more than just sayings scribbled with chalk, flowers and candles, at the site of Saturday's vehicle attack. "I think this is a wonderful thing for our community, because at times like this, we need to show our strength and love, and not our division and hate", said rally attendee Keenan Cortez.

A day later, on Tuesday, Bro said she did not recall praising or criticizing Trump.

"It's not that I saw somebody else's tweets about him, I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters... with the [Ku Klux Klan] and the white supremacists", she said on Friday. "And anything he can do to further that mission, I'm going to be behind him".

Heather Heyer, Bro's 32-year-old daughter, was killed Saturday when James Alex Fields Jr. drove at full speed into a crowd of counterprotesters gathered at the rally.

"But Bro said she changed her mind after watching Trump's controversial remarks on Tuesday".

The officials, who were not authorised to be publicly named, said no one has been reported hurt in the operation. Police are investigating a possible gunfight at a train station in Nimes, France, according to local reports .

She acknowledged a statement that she had released Monday, in which she thanked Trump for his "words of comfort and for denouncing those who promote violence and hatred" that day. "Her story reminds me of Viola Liuzzo, [a white woman] who left her home in Detroit to help with the Selma-to-Montgomery March, only to be killed by white supremacists". The driver, who is facing a second-degree murder charge, is a known white supremacist. "I'm not forgiving that".

Also, Bro says that subsequent to seeing the news gathering, it's past the point of no return for expressions of remorse.

She also added that she feels Trump is catering to the wrong groups of voters.

The White House has not explained why officials waited four days before trying to connect Trump with Heyer's relatives. "You can't wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying, 'I'm sorry, '" she said.

"She would have laughed them to scorn", she said.

The mother of the lady slaughtered in Charlottesville, Virginia, a weekend ago said she is not inspired by got notification from the President since she trusts he compared her girl to racial oppressors.
