Trump aide considers Va. clash to be terrorism

BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) - President Donald Trump's national security adviser says the violence that broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, "meets the definition of terrorism."

H.R. McMaster tells ABC's "This Week" that "anytime that you commit an attack against people to incite fear, it is terrorism."

One person died Saturday when a rammed into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville as tension boiled over at a white supremacist rally.

McMaster calls it "a criminal act against fellow Americans. A criminal act that may have been motivated - and we'll see what's turned up in this investigation - by this hatred and bigotry, which I mentioned we have to extinguish in our nation."
