The rally on Sunday, called Unite the Right II, is scheduled to take over Lafayette Square for two hours in the evening.

They won't be alone.

On Thursday, the National Park Service approved a permit for a Unite the Right Rally in D.C.'s Lafayette Park.

US President Donald Trump says he condemns "all types of racism and acts of violence", appealing for unity ahead of the anniversary of a deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"Some of our members are concerned about safety for their staff and guests and came to us with questions as we are a resource for the restaurant community".
