Susan Bro, the mother of the woman killed at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday, thanked President Trump on Monday after he spoke out against hate groups for their role in the weekend’s violence.

Heather Heyer, 32, was one of dozens of counter-protesters in Charlottesville on Saturday who was in the path of James Alex Fields Jr, of Maumee, Ohio, when he drove his car at top speed into a busy street filled with people. Unfortunately, she lost her life, while many around her were badly injured.

Fields was taken to Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail and has since been charged with second-degree murder.

A GoFundMe page was set up for her family seeking $50,000. As of Sunday morning, $43,000 was already raised and on Monday, the account was closed after bringing in approximately $225,000. One of the comments made on her GoFundMe page came from a friend who wrote, “She was murdered while protesting against hate.”

According to the DailyMail, Heyer worked with the Miller Law Group PC in Virginia as a paralegal. She was a native of Greene County and graduated from William Monroe High School. Her social media profile revealed that she was passionate about social justice. Her Facebook page shows a picture of Bernie Sanders for president 2016, and in her final public Facebook post, dated from 2016, she wrote, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.”

Charlottesville Police Chief Alfred Thomas Jr. told reporters Heyer was killed while crossing the street after Fields plowed his Dodge Challenger into the protesters, and then went in reverse to break away from the crowd.  It was all caught on video.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides,” Trump said as he began his remarks about the tragedy on Saturday.

Making it clear that the problem is societal, the President noted, “It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump. Not Barack Obama. It’s been going on for a long, long time. ”

He continued, “It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society, and no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play.”

“Thank you, President Trump, for those words of comfort and for denouncing those who promote violence and hatred,” Susan Bro said in a statement, according to NBC News.

“My condolences, also, to the grieving families of the two state troopers and quick recovering for those injured,” she added.

President Trump’s initial response sparked a firestorm of controversy, and the president on Monday specifically called out hate groups, including the Ku Klux Klan and Nazis for their role in the weekend’s violence in Charlottesville.

“Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to what we hold dear as Americans,” President Trump said in a surprise statement from the Diplomatic Reception Room.

On Monday, the President also spoke about Heyer, saying, “Her death fills us with grief, and we send her and her family our thoughts, our prayers and our love.”

Having earlier tweeted out a video clip from his statements on the attack, in this tweet, President Trump included another video with more of his remarks. “We have so many incredible things happening in our country, so when I watch Charlottesville, to me, it’s very, very sad,” he said at a press conference Saturday in New Jersey.

He commended the law enforcement, state and local police in Virginia and the National Guard for their service in Charlottesville. “We are here to provide whatever other assistance is needed, we are ready, willing and able,” Trump said.

“Above all else, we must remember this truth, no matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all AMERICANS FIRST. We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we’re proud of our country, we’re proud of who we are, so we want to get this situation straightened out in Charlottesville. We want to study it, and we want to see what we’re doing wrong as a country where things like this can happen,” President Trump said.

He continued, “My administration is restoring the sacred bonds of loyalty between this nation and its citizens, but our citizens must also restore the bonds of trust and loyalty between one another. We must love each other, respect each other and cherish our history and our future together. Ideally, we have to love each other.”
