LONDON - British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday she saw no equivalence between fascists and their opponents after US President Donald Trump said protestors against a far-right rally were partially responsible for violence.

"I see no equivalence between those who propound fascist views and those who oppose them. I think it is important for all those in positions of responsibility to condemn far-right views," May told reporters.

Trump inflamed tensions after a deadly rally by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, by insisting that counter-protesters were also to blame, drawing condemnation from some Republican leaders and praise from white far-right groups.
