The Virginia newspaper "The Daily Progress" used President Trump's "fire and fury" phrase to describe a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville.

President Trump said the United States would respond with "fire and fury" to North Korea if the rogue nation "acted unwisely." The president's tough talk came after Leader Kim Jong-un's repeated threats to America, which escalated this week. 

The Charlottesville, Va. paper was reporting on demonstrations by white nationalist protesters who conglomerated at the campus of the University of Virginia this weekend to protest the removal of a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee.

The alt-right activists and Ku Klux Klan members gathered around the statue of Thomas Jefferson waving torches and chanting “white lives matter” and “you will not replace us" on Friday before Saturday's planned "Unite the Right" rally.

About 2,000 to 6,000 people are expected at the rally, plus counter-protesters. Close to 1000 police will be stationed at the event.

Eventually campus police declared an "unlawful assembly" and dispersed the gathering.

Charlottesville has renamed several parks originally named after confederate figures, and the city has voted to remove several statues after outrage over their connection to slavery erupted the past few years. White nationalists have swarmed the city to push back.
