In his Broadway show, Michael Moore has been urging audiences to get off their behinds and take action - and on Tuesday night he gave them a little shove. You are culpable white America, I'm sorry.

Before this latest news conference, it had become clear that the man who rammed his auto into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a woman and injuring dozens of people, had idolized Adolph Hitler long before he joined the white nationalist rally.

"We want him to know that an American killed on American soil by a Nazi is not acceptable", Ruffalo said.

The protest came after Trump reignited a firestorm of criticism when he doubled down on comments saying there is "blame on both sides" for the violent weekend in Charlottesville, Va. Say her name: "Heather Heyer!".

Moore said it's "absolutely criminal to stand behind the people who killed Heather Heyer" and likened those who continue to support Trump to rape enablers. "I don't think it's at all a thing to sell tickets", he said. "Let's say her name so Donald Trump can hear what's happened here".

Ministry spokesman Khaled Megahed told state television that more than a 100 people were also injured in the collision. By nightfall, cranes aided by floodlights began to remove the wreckage off the tracks to allow rail traffic to resume.

Speaking to CNN host Don Lemon, Mr. Moore claimed that Mr. Trump is undoubtedly a racist and so are the "vast majority" of his supporters.

Critics of Trump have condemned him roundly for the third statement he made about the attack in Charlottesville where he appeared to equate the left-wing "antifa" members with the white supremacist and alt-right protesters who allegedly inspired the murderous violence.

Moore told his audience on the bus, "We are here to perform a citizens' arrest-well, there's lots of police there, maybe they'll do it for us".

"For the sake of the soul of our country, we must come together to restore our national dignity that has been robbed by Donald Trump's presence in the White House", Moore said in a statement.
