heather heyer mother condemns trump following press conference

Heather Heyer's mother couldn't be more disappointed in Donald Trump.

As you surely know, Susan Bro lost her daughter on Saturday after a car rammed into a crowd of counter-protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. While Bro initially thanked POTUS for condemning those who promote violence, she has since changed her opinion of the president following his controversial press conference this week.

Susan explained to Good Morning America's Robin Roberts:

"I hadn't really watched the news until last night and I'm not talking to the president now, after what he said. It's not that I saw somebody else's tweets about him, I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters … with the KKK and the white supremacists…. You can't wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying, ‘I'm sorry.' I'm not forgiving for that."

Hear! Hear!

Although POTUS and his team have reached out to Susan on a number of occasions, Susan feels this outpouring of support is simply a part of a "political agenda" and she is "resistant to that." Now that Susan has laid her daughter to rest, she hopes to "forward Heather's mission." We're sure Heather would be so proud of her mother.

Heather Heyer may be gone, but she won't be silenced.

That's one thing the mother of the 32-year-old — who was killed on Saturday when a car plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters at Charlottesville's white nationalist rally — made clear at the activist's memorial service.

On Wednesday, Susan Bro received a standing ovation as she assured mourners Heather's death only "magnified" her voice — and that continuing to have dialogues is the only way to "carry Heather's spark through."

She told the crowd of over 1,000 people:

"They tried to kill my child to shut her up — well, guess what — you just magnified her… I want this to spread, I don't want this to die. This is just the beginning of Heather's legacy."

The memorial was held Wednesday morning at Charlottesville's Paramount Theater and attended by many including Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Sen. Tim Kaine.

Bro revealed that a public memorial is what her daughter would have wanted, adding Heather "had to have the world involved [in her death], because that's my child. Always has been."

The Charlottesville native encouraged attendees to make Heather's death worthwhile by continuing her fight in advocacy for equal rights. She explained:
