President Trump paid tribute to the woman who died in Charlottesville after a car plowed into a group of counterprotesters that turned out for a rally organized by white supremacists.

“Memorial service today for beautiful and incredible Heather Heyer, a truly special young woman,” Mr. Trump tweeted. “She will be long remembered by all!”

A memorial service is being held for Ms. Heyer Wednesday in Charlottesville. Virginia Gov. Terry McAulliffe and Sen. Tim Kaine were among the elected officials in attendance.

Mr. Trump has been showered with criticism after making the case that both the white supremacists and neo-Nazis, as well as the counterprotesters are to blame for the violent clashes that played out in Virginia over the weekend.
