Trump to meet with Jeff Sessions, Christopher Wray to discuss violence in Charlottesville

President Trump will meet with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Monday in Washington to discuss the violence in Charlottesville, Va., this weekend, the White House announced.

The president spent last week at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., and was scheduled to return to Washington on Monday to announce an investigation into China’s intellectual property practices and attend a variety of meetings.

But the meeting with Sessions and Wray was a late addition to Trump’s schedule following the events in Charlottesville, where a white nationalist rally turned violent.

The White House announced Monday morning Trump will meet with Sessions and Wray at 11:30 a.m. in the Treaty Room at the White House.

One person died in Charlottesville after a 20-year-old man drove his car through a crowd of people protesting the white nationalist rally.

Trump issued a statement about the violence, but was criticized for not condemning the specific white supremacist groups involved in the rally.

Sessions said Monday in interviews across all major television networks he expects the president to denounce specific groups.
