Thousands of demonstrators roared "shame, shame, shame" and "not my president!" while awaiting Mr. Trump's motorcade along Manhattan's Fifth Avenue, but it ultimately approached from another direction.
Mr. Trump, under pressure after initially condemning what he called an "egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides," on Monday declared that "racism is evil" and described members of the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists who take part in violence as "criminals and thugs."
Texas A&M University late Monday called off a planned white supremacist rally on its campus next month, citing concerns of a "major security risk" following the demonstrations that turned deadly over the weekend in Virginia.
A former A&M student named Preston Wiginton had been organizing a "white lives matter" rally in College Station, Texas, saying he was inspired by Saturday's "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, when a vehicle plowed into a group of counterprotesters, killing at least one and injuring 19. But the university said it was cancelling the event because of "concerns about the safety of its students, faculty, staff, and the public."
On Sunday's "Last Week Tonight," John Oliver harshly condemned President Trump for his response to the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., this weekend. "It's the kind of tragedy that calls for true leadership from whoever is in the Oval Office," Oliver said.
"There honestly aren't that many instances in modern American politics where you can honestly think, 'That guy really should have mentioned the Nazis,' but this is emphatically one of them," Oliver said, arguing that Trump had made "a wild false equivalence between Nazis and people who oppose Nazis." The comedian said there is a reason Trump enjoys vocal support among white nationalists such as David Duke, who said on Saturday that "we're going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump.". "Nazis are a lot like cats.

On Saturday, he discovered that social media sleuths had incorrectly identified him as a participant in a white nationalist rally some 1,100 miles away in Charlottesville, Va.
A man at the rally had been photographed wearing an “Arkansas Engineering” shirt, and the amateur investigators found a photo of Mr. Quinn that looked somewhat similar.
EDT. The US government is seeking to unmask every person who visited an anti-Trump website in what privacy advocates say is an unconstitutional “fishing expedition” for political dissidents.
The warrant appears to be an escalation of the department of justice’s campaign against anti-Trump activities, including the harsh prosecution of inauguration day protesters. On 17 July, the department of justice served a website-hosting company, DreamHost, with a search warrant for every piece of information it possessed that was related to a website that was used to coordinate protests during Donald Trump’s inauguration.
A leading neo-Nazi website continued to be accessible Monday despite efforts by website registration companies Google and GoDaddy to oust it after it mocked the woman killed in a deadly attack at a white nationalist rally in Virginia.
The registration had moved there after GoDaddy tweeted late Sunday night that it had given the Daily Stormer 24 hours to move its domain to another provider, also because the site had violated GoDaddy's terms of service.
New Yorker David Berkowitz still pays for cable, streams from Netflix and Amazon (AMZN), and sometimes buys individual movies from Amazon.
Disney's (DIS) plan for two new streaming services (and possibly more) is just the latest sign that everyone is jumping into the streaming business. It intends to launch a kids-oriented movie and streaming-TV service in 2019 that will pull Disney and Pixar films from Netflix (NFLX), as well as an ESPN sidekick service (minus pro football and basketball) expected early next year.
A 23-year-old man who was “out for blood” when he attempted to detonate what he believed was an explosives-laden van outside an Oklahoma bank in a plot similar to the deadly 1995 bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building is expected to be formally charged on Monday, authorities said.
Federal officials said Jerry Drake Varnell of Sayre, Oklahoma, was arrested early on Saturday in connection with a plot to detonate a vehicle bomb in an alley adjacent to BancFirst in downtown Oklahoma City.
More than a thousand protesters gathered outside Trump Tower in New York City on Monday night, ahead of Donald Trump’s first visit to his home there since his inauguration.
While a number of people marched up and down outside Trump Tower, around 200 protesters, all dressed in black, gathered at the corner of Central Park for what they described as a “funeral march” to “mourn the death of Heather Heyer, and condemn the many ways Trump is killing our country”.
European stocks on Monday partly recovered from last week’s sharp losses after senior U.S. officials over the weekend sought to play down the risk of a nuclear conflict with North Korea.
Economic data: Industrial production in the eurozone fell 0.6% in June compared with May, indicating that the region’s economy may be settling down after a growth spurt in the beginning of the year.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters criticized President Donald Trump for taking days to specifically call out hate groups and their racist ideologies following a deadly rally in Virginia this weekend, and said on Monday that the sentiment in his latest remarks were “not in his heart.”
Earlier Monday, Trump said in prepared remarks that hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan and others were “repugnant” and that “racism was evil,” two days after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a driver slammed a car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one and injuring 19 others.
Protesters rallied for the second consecutive evening in front of the White House on Monday, condemning white supremacy and calling on the Trump administration to take a more hard-line stance against it.
Protesters then marched down Pennsylvania Avenue, past the Trump International Hotel and toward the statue of Confederate Gen. Albert Pike.
Protesters in North Carolina toppled a nearly century-old statue of a Confederate soldier on Monday at a rally against racism.
He said that while Confederate monuments have been defaced in other cities, it was surprising to see an entire statue brought down by protesters.
“The problem is, there’s a sense [in Mexico] that victory for Trump will have to come at the expense of Mexico,” Ortiz-Mena said, noting that Trump’s negotiators have threatened to pull out of the deal altogether if they don’t get what they want. “They’ve said: ‘If we’re not happy, we’re withdrawing.’”
The renegotiation process was triggered in April by President Trump, who has repeatedly blamed NAFTA for the hemorrhaging of U.S. manufacturing jobs, and whose chief trade representative says closing the roughly $60-billion trade gap with Mexico will be a top priority during the talks that begin Wednesday.
