    • Contacts between Pyongyang and the US picked up again after Trump took office
    • They follow a deep freeze between North Korea and the Obama administration
    Washington (CNN)Even as tensions between the US and North Korea have intensified, along with President Donald Trump's rhetoric, US diplomats have quietly and steadily been in contact with their North Korean counterparts.

    The meetings, led by the US Special Representative for North Korea Policy Joseph Yun and reported on by CNN, have focused on Americans detained in North Korea, but have also touched on the relationship between the two countries.

    The US has been in contact with North Korea since at least February at an official level and there have been lower-level talks between Americans -- though none who represent the US government -- and North Korean officials.

    Trump, Politicians Condemn White Nationalist Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia
    by Marianna Sotomayor and Ariana Brockington

    VIDEO

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — The wave of violence incited during a gathering Saturday of white nationalists and counter-protesters led President Donald Trump and other state and national lawmakers to denounce the rally as hateful.

    Politicians on both sides of the aisle agreed that such speech, which included racist and anti-Semitic slurs, should be condemned. Some emphasized that while they support freedom of speech and assembly, they do not condone the violence and racism seen in Charlottesville.

    The world has already seen ‘fire and fury’

    In the moments after the blast she pawed through the debris that had been her home, searching for her 4-year-old daughter, Akiko Osato. There was nothing to be found of her, she told me — not then, not ever. Minutes before, her daughter had been in her arms asking for a can of tangerines that had been set aside as an emergency ration. But Sonoda had denied her daughter the tangerines, lest conditions — already dire — should worsen.

    All this came to mind hearing the president’s threat to unleash the unspeakable terror of nuclear weapons. He said it from the clubhouse of a Bedminster, N.J., golf course, a universe away from Hiroshima’s skeletal dome, a testament to the unthinkable.

    The president spoke of “fire and fury like the world has never seen.” But the world has seen it. Sonoda saw it. So, too, did a couple hundred thousand other souls, nearly all civilians, whose everything was obliterated in an instant. And standing at the humble stone monument marking the exact spot 1,900 feet above which the sun itself seemed to detonate, the temperature rising to 5,000 degrees, unleashing cyclonic winds, I also felt the shiver that never leaves that place.

    Charlottesville White Nationalist Rally Turns Violent, Prompting State of Emergency
    by Marianna Sotomayor, Phil McCausland and Ariana Brockington

    VIDEO

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — One person died and 19 were injured after a car plowed through a crowd here on Saturday. White nationalists and counter-protesters had violently clashed earlier in the day, injuring eight and prompting Charlottesville police and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe to declare a state of emergency.

    Supporters gathered in Emancipation Park Saturday morning in anticipation of a noon rally held by "Unite the Right." The aim of the rally was to protest the removal of a statue honoring Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The park was formerly known as Lee Park.

    State police and members of the Virginia National Guard surrounded the park after McAuliffe declared a state of emergency and the city of Charlottesville declared the alt-right protest an unlawful assembly — effectively cancelling the demonstration before its planned start time.

    Reactions to Trump's statement on violence in Virginia

    President Donald Trump blamed "many sides" for violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the wake of a white nationalist demonstration, drawing swift reactions.

    Democrats and some Republicans called on him to specifically denounce white supremacy and racially motivated hate by name. Vice President Mike Pence supported the president's speech. A white supremacist website praised the comments.

    What Trump said:

    We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides," Trump said. "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."

    What others are saying:

    Trump -- once again -- fails to condemn the alt-right, white supremacists

    Story highlights
    • Trump blamed violence in Charlottesville at white supremacist protests on "many sides."
    • Republican leaders criticized the President for not calling the incidents "terrorism."
    • Trump has made a name for himself with sharp verbal attacks, but has held back here
    Bridgewater, New Jersey (CNN)President Donald Trump, a man known for his bluntness, was anything but on Saturday, failing to name the white supremacists or alt-right groups at the center of violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    Instead, the man whose vicious attacks against Hillary Clinton, John McCain, federal judges, fellow Republican leaders and journalists helped define him both in and out of the White House simply blamed "many sides."

    Alleged driver of car that plowed into Charlottesville crowd was a Nazi sympathizer, former teacher says
    By T. Rees Shapiro, Ellie Silverman, Laura Vozzella and John Woodrow Cox August 13 at 2:15 PM

    VIDEO

    CHARLOTTESVILLE — A man accused of plowing a car into a crowd of protesters here — killing one person and leaving 19 injured — long sympathized with Nazi views and had stood with a group of white supremacists hours before Saturday’s bloody crash.

    The alleged driver, James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Ohio, had espoused extremist ideals at least since high school, according to Derek Weimer, a history teacher.

    Weimer said that he taught Fields during his junior and senior years at Randall K. Cooper High School in Kentucky. In a class called “America’s Modern Wars,” Weimer said that Fields wrote a deeply researched paper about the Nazi military during World War II.

    “It was obvious that he had this fascination with Nazism and a big idolatry of Adolf Hitler,” Weimer said. “He had white supremacist views. He really believed in that stuff.”

    Heather Heyer, Charlottesville Victim, Is Recalled as ‘a Strong Woman’
    By CHRISTINA CARONAUG. 13, 2017

    VIDEO

    Heather D. Heyer died standing up for what she believed in.

    Friends described her as a passionate advocate for the disenfranchised who was often moved to tears by the world’s injustices. That sense of conviction led her to join demonstrators

    We were just marching around, spreading love — and then the accident happened,” a friend, Marissa Blair, said. “In a split second you see a car, and you see bodies flying.”

    Trump Condemns Hate Groups, Calls Racism ‘Evil’ Days After Charlottesville Violence
    by Andrew Rafferty

    VIDEO

    His remarks followed widespread criticism for his failure to forcibly denounce white supremacists in the immediate aftermath of the violent clash between white nationalists and counter-protesters that left 19 injured and one person dead in Charlottesville on Saturday.

    His remarks followed widespread criticism for his failure to forcibly denounce white supremacists in the immediate aftermath of the violent clash between white nationalists and counter-protesters that left 19 injured and one person dead in Charlottesville on Saturday.

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

    Intel CEO is the latest to leave Trump's manufacturing council
    by Jethro Mullen @CNNTech August 15, 2017: 12:37 AM ET

    VIDEO

    Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has become the third top business leader to step down from President Trump's manufacturing council on Monday.

    He follows the chiefs of Merck (MRK) and Under Armour (UA), who announced their decisions earlier Monday amid the fallout over Trump's response to violence over the weekend at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    "We should honor -- not attack -- those who have stood up for equality and other cherished American values. I hope this will change, and I remain willing to serve when it does," Krzanich wrote in a blog post on the Silicon Valley company's website late Monday.

    Combative Trump insists anew: Blame both sides for violence
    By JONATHAN LEMIRE and JULIE PACE
    Associated Press

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Combative and insistent, President Donald Trump declared anew Tuesday "there is blame on both sides" for the deadly violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, appearing to once again equate the actions of white supremacist groups and those protesting them.

    The president's comments effectively wiped away the more conventional statement he delivered at the White House a day earlier when he branded members of the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists who take part in violence as "criminals and thugs."

    Trump's advisers had hoped those remarks might quell a crush of criticism from both Republicans and Democrats. But the president's retorts Tuesday suggested he had been a reluctant participant in that cleanup effort.
