Prime Minister Theresa May condemns racism and hatred, her spokesman said on Monday when asked about US President Donald Trump's response to violence at a rally of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, which killed one woman.

On Saturday, a car plowed into a crowd of people protesting against the rally, killing one person and prompting criticism of Trump's response when he condemned violence on "many sides."

Asked whether Trump's response had been robust enough, May's spokesman told reporters: "What the President says is a matter for him. We are very clear ... We condemn racism, hatred and violence," he said. "We condemn the far right."
